i really love my school because of many things. Some of the reason why i love my school is because of everybody in it ,they are so friendly and very helpful , for example teachers who really care about you ,security guys in the school who protect us like if we were their own kids. The school does everything in their power to motivate every single students to do his best and as a most of the students are giving everything the got. Some example of what the school does to motivate the students are, for example give movie ticket to the first honor roll students, gave a MacDonald gift card ,subway gift card, medals and many more awards. if i got a chance to choose another school i will not choose it because i already got the best school that i need to graduate and have a wonderful future. i love explorations academy high school and i am more than 100 % sure that every student will said the same thing or even more much more great things about explorations academy.
