The teachers are nice! There is a diversity of students and teachers. The building itself was in decent shape. However, in the past year it has been remodeled. During the years that I attended (2009- 2013) the school lacked some resources. Not enough student clubs were available. Now the school has been divided into a high school and an arts school. Giving new coming in students the option of going off into the arts if interested. There is also an option of joining a law program on campus that allows students to study the basics of law enforcement for those interested in becoming police officers.

I was born and raised in Grand Prairie, TX, a close-nit
population that urged involvement. Early in my childhood, my parents motivated me to become
the cornerstone of success.
Fall 2016, while attending Grand Prairie High, I was a part of the Arise and Build Church, one of the foremost non-
denominational churches Grand Prairie TX. It aimed to promote God’s Kingdom, family, friends,
and the community. I accepted the call to mentor in the area of reading comprehension for bible-
studies. In 2017, as a result of that, I began composing my first suspense/mystery fictional book,
The Invisible.
My experience in High School was good throughout 9th grade and 12th grade, the teachers that I got were great. There were events such as football games, theatre's, choir, and different other events, it was very lively environment. The school building was quite large and there was books in a library to help us with our education and it was quite large. There was various club activities that were interesting and of course the most important thing were the many types of sports and in my opinion they did great. The high school was quite diverse, most were hispanics, african american, white, asian very few other ethnicities. At the school I did feel safe throughout the school years and I do think that the employees who keep us safe did a great job. The high school that I attended was great and in my opinion I had a great experience.
