I liked the field trips and all the teachers pushing me to keep going and not give up. In future, I would like the cafeteria to make a more diverse lunch menu. Also, I would like school to be a little less strict than it was this year. The teachers were supportive and never tried to fail you on purpose. You had to make High school fun in order to enjoy the experience. I'm going to miss all the fun times I had with my classmates. We went everywhere together and just lived life on the edge until the road ends. I wish all my fellow classmates the best and hope everyone has success in at lease one thing or multiple things though life as begin to step into the real world.Overall, though out my year there were the good times and bad times, but I'll never forget Fordyce High School.

In our school, bullying is not very prominent. It is usually taken care of before the situation is even fully emerged. Our school resource officer is armed and is very protective of our school campus. The resource officer visits each building in our school district multiple times a day and assures us of our safety. All doors leading outside are usually kept locked to protect us students. All visitors are required to sign in at the school office before entering any other part of the building. Our school nurse is located in the middle of the school district, in a handy place for those who need her. She has all the proper equipment needed to treat each student she see's on a daily basis. Our school district is more safe than most of those around us, from what I have heard. I feel completely safe while I am inside the school buildings.
I have attended this school district since Pre-K and plan to graduate from here. Students, teachers, parents, and the community are involved in school activities. This school has always made me feel good. Teachers encourage us to do our best. If I had to start all over again, I would!
