Escambia County High School was a very productive four years, I was able to secure an identity for myself in addition to gaining insight on how to prepare for the future. While attending I was influenced by my peers and instructor on where to pursue a career in Mechanical Engineering. Because of them I was also able to be accepted to many other colleges in addition to being awarded a plethora of scholarships to start my pursuit of higher education.

Escambia County High School overall was an ok school. It was not the best, it was not the worse. The good things about the school was that some teachers actually did care about students and they actually helped and taught. Another thing that I liked was the size of the campus. I liked the smallness. A downfall of the school was that some teachers were really rude and could care less about students. There was not a "no bullying" policy in effect like it was said to be. Other than that, Escambia County High School in Atmore was not really a bad school. Like stated before, it was ok.
The things I like about my school is that I am surrounded by people who really care about my education and others. Every teacher there is there to do just exactly what they should do which is to make sure that every student gets the same opportunity as other students to be as great as possible and reach their goals. We are challenged each day by our teachers with our work and more than ever by our principal. There was a time that I was worried about my information being sent off to a college, my principal made sure that they received everything they should have received for me by the end of that week. This shows a lot about our school body and the dedication they have upon their students that attend there. In the meantime, I would like to see a change in our set goals. We should set our goals higher to achieve much more. Overall, I think my school is fantastic and there is no way around saying just that.
