Excel High School Reviews
My experience at Excel was good. I got to meet new people. The environment was good. I love when the whole school comes together and have assemblies, talking about ways we can make the school better, upcoming events or fields trips. My favorite class was Global Issues. We partner up with another country named Jordan. We learn about their country and ways we can both make our communities better. It was very fun! I learn a lot from them. I learn that no matter where you are from, we are all the same. The challenge about the class was trying to figure out ways to cause awareness so everyone can make our communities a better place.
The young people and teachers at Excel High School, are amazing and have built a supportive and loving environment. The administration however, was destructive to the learning and emotional culture that was already built in our school. They challenged student voice and disregarded the mental and emotional well being of our student. I wish for the years to come that the school finds an administrative team that supports student voice and power, as well as values the mental and emotional stress of urban students of color that see violence and trauma everyday.
I like the fact that all coaches are obligated and committed to there jobs, they help out anyone that struggles in and outside of school. Have different clubs that you can participate in and enjoy. On the other hand lunch isn’t that perfect but is better than anything. If you want to stay healthy, and of course if you play sports and have games you definitely will need drinks and something’s that will make you engage throughout your game and throughout your time during school. However, the school is pretty old but the knowledge is very powerful and the school has such amazing teacher that want everyone to be successful and definitely that’s what everyone needs in there life.
