My experience overall was good, but I would love to see more involvement from teachers and staff. I hated that some teachers sometimes take sides or favor some students better than others. They should fix that! I'm graduating and I can honestly say I will not miss much of this school. I made good friends and received great advice from good teachers.
As of the year 2020, I've been at Heights High School, formerly known as Reagan High School, for four years. During my time at the school, I've grown a lot. As a freshman, I was told not to act foolishly and to focus on my grades instead. Unfortunately, I didn't start taking my classes seriously until my sophomore year. That year, I realized I had to prioritize my assignments and by junior year, my GPA was at a 3.7. Despite what you may think, I did manage to enjoy my high school experience, and it was all because of my school. Heights consisted of pep rallies, waiver days where clubs sold various kinds of food, and compassionate teachers who cared about us just as much as their lessons. Although it isn't the best school to ever exist, I will never regret attending it, for it has shaped me into who I am today/
