I enjoyed my time in High School! I was involved with track and field and soccer and then went more towards clubs. I was in service club, art club, anime club and secretary of the class junior year. I was always involved with the school. I also enjoyed my classes and learning new topics

I loved the relationship that I had with all of my teachers. I have been very fortunate to have a good relationship with them. They all provided me with help if I needed it. Between the four years of high school, I have not been slammed with homework. I’ve been able to have a life outside of high school, which I appreciated. I have also felt pretty safe at my school. Yes, there have been threats and such, but my school takes the necessary precautions for safety of our school which is appreciated.
Gates Chili High School was not just a school, but a home. It provided me with the right tools for college. The teachers always have your best interest at heart. They want to see kids exceed rather than just do the bare minimum. Gates Chili also exposed me to so many different cultures. African American, Arabian, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Italian, and many more. It is an eye opener and attending this school has made me more appreciative of other people. One thing that should be improved is the power of the teachers. Administration has too much of a grip on the students education. It should be the teachers making the rules rather than the super intendant, who sit at their desk all day. The teachers are in the class room 24/7, they know what the students need. Other than that, this high school is very special to me. So many positive things have come from it.
