I like how everyone knew each other. It allows people to learn in a safe, comfortable environment. However, due to its small size, the opportunities to specialize my learning are limited. I believe that my school needs more resources so that students can pursue their passions in a more in-depth way. Also, the school needs more resources so as to be able to provide its students with up-to-date textbooks and learning tools.

I like how our school is a small school so everyone knows everyone. Due to that there is a lot of bullying and it gets nothing is done due to “favorites”. The school is very unprofessional when it comes to mental health. When your talking to administration how you feel you can be pushed away and ignored how you felt. What I hoped the school could improve on is helping students with bullying the first time they come to them instead of being told to report it first online on the school page before they do anything. Safety hasn’t got much better here you can find an opened or unlocked door usually still.
I appreciate that my school is located in a small town and I can recognize most of the students enrolled at my school, as well as know most of them quite well. I have however always noticed that the students who play sports, or are considered "popular" would always be recognized for their achievement more so than the students in Math Team, ACES, Scholastic Bowl and other academic based teams.
