My experience from Freshman to senior year at Greensburg Salem High school has been interesting. I was antisocial my freshman year and i didn't have many friends.I thought there was no purpose until i reached the next year. That year i found what i wanted to do with my life. I started getting better grades and engaging more with others. I realized i was a hands on person. Junior year, i was confused on what school i wanted to go to and with the help of the counselors, i wanted to pursue a career in electrical. Senior year, i seemed more passionate about clubs and getting engaged at the school. I visited colleges and now i know where i want to go. I liked how the teachers and counselors pushed me to take classes i never thought i would and how principles encouraged students and appreciated are accomplishes for the school. I also liked the clubs. Changes i like for the school would be to change the school lunches and make them healthier.

The school district as a whole is over all pretty good. We are however, a poorer school, therefore, the students tend to have difficult home lives and struggle when it comes to staying focused. Teachers tend to believe none of us want to be there, hence teachers not feeling as motivated to teach. We are kind of generalized as "bad students." When a student does prove themselves as wanted in enhance their education, the school does everything in their power to give us the resources needed to do so.
After attending Greensburg Salem High School I feel as if I was decently prepared for my future. There are definitely pros and cons to the school however the personal connection between student and teacher is unmatched. I developed amazing relationships with almost all of my teachers. The foreign language program is amazing and a large portion of the students graduate as bilingual. Finally, the academics are very good and the student has a lot of choice when it comes to creating their schedule. Having no class rank helped the individual to focus on oneself rather than what the other students were doing. I'm very grateful for my high school experience and I'm glad it was at Greensburg Salem.
