As a students I find a lot of the teachers and administrators give certain students preferential treatment, if they are athletes or if they the “popular” kids.
From what I have noticed about the college preparedness, is that most students are not prepared for college. However, I think that students who participate in the jumpstart program offered here are much more prepared for college because it allows for students to actually participate in college and therefore understand how to best partake in college after graduation.

I enjoyed the fact that the high school gave me the opportunity to become part of a Jumpstart program, which allowed me to take college classes for dual credit where I could still be supported by familiar teachers. However, I think one thing that I would like to see changed about the school is how the teachers and administrators interact with us. I wish that they would treat us not like aspiring adults and not mindless cattle.
I attend Fernley High School, in the beginning there wasn't a lot of people attending. As time passed by a lot more people from all over started to come. The school is well organized, and controlled most of the time. I feel safe there and not afraid to go every single day. My school has a culturally diverse of people. The school could change by having different teachers and ways of teaching with no judgment.
