George Rogers Clark is an extremely diverse school. Which allows students to get a sense of what the real world is like. In the past this school was lacking in a few aspects. However, with the current administration there have been some great improvements. The new administration has been implementing new incentives to encourage students to do well in their classes. These incentives also helps stop students from participating in unacceptable behavior. In my opinion there could be more after school programs offered at this school. However, as I mentioned I believe the current administration is doing a fantastic job and bettering the school. I definitely enjoyed my time there.

What seemed very intrigued about George Rogers Clark Middle/Highschool is that the teachers care about our education and our safety, they try to be involved with our personal life if we ever need help from them. Graduating from George Rogers Clark was the best thing that happened, along with being prepared for College and as an adult. What needs to be changed is the way how some teachers teach. The majority of teachers have very interesting lessons and make it more interesting by giving examples and showing videos to the class in order to understand the lesson, while some teachers only have slideshows that would last forever in class and eventually would be too boring. Change the way how some teachers teach would make it more entertaining for students. Overall, my 3 years at George Rogers Clark was the best and most memorable time of my life.
I like that George Rogers Clark has a great group of administrators that motivate the students everyday with thoughtful shout outs or awards. The school is involved with really good collage programs for both, underclassmen and upperclassmen. Something I would like to change about Clark is the school spirit. Students should be involved with the school more and do more sports or join any clubs.
