I love the fact that the staff make themselves a resource for students that are having a hard time adjusting to the atmosphere of a new school. Being a freshman in high school was hard for me but I've created a relationship with most of my teachers and they've made me feel very welcome and that I was not alone. One thing I would love to see change is female involvement. There is a higher ratio of boys to girls and most of the activities in school are for males. Making clubs that would be inclusive for females would be highly beneficial to female adjustment in a male dominated community.
I'm currently a senior in George Westinghouse high school . so far there have been 2 different principles within my stay. And within 3 year many teachers have either retired or got transferred in to a different school.So because of the shift in staff and teachers rules were changed and from freshen men year till now. I can say that despite the fact that things have changed the school still remains to be a very interesting , I will not lie and say that its the best school because there are days i wish i could transfer but over all i felt like going to Westinghouse was not a complete mistake . I was able to make friends gain career ready skill because I was in multimedia and I learned to code .So i'm grateful to Westinghouse .
