Where I attend High School is a very different place from many other high schools. Hicksville High School is a great high school for multiple reasons. My high school is extremely diverse which allows me to be familiar with so many different other cultures around me. I also get the opportunity to be aware that no matter what religion or ethnicity you are, we are all human. In addition, some might be strongly academically, or maybe some are more into the arts, or sports, but everyone in my high school receives an opportunity for success. If academics isn't a strong point for you, being engaged in clubs, sports, internships, volunteer work, performing arts, and other extracurricular activities helps you balance school with other factors of life. In the long run, my high school experience is helping me to be more prepared for my future, when I have to balance work common life responsibilities. The choice is up to the student, not the grade written down on a test.
I am a senior at Hicksville high school and the school can be considered to be one of the best stem schools because the amount of involvement that the faculty and students have within themselves is extraordinarily amazing. The teachers are really well trained in their own field. Moreover, they make the class fun for you with their own way of teaching things. I came to this school when I was a junior from an entirely different country and the amount of hospitality and kindness that faculty and the students showed me is mesmerizing. The Hicksville music and arts department is actually known throughout New York because of students' contribution in special events for their special fields. Overall my experience at this school was amazing and the amount of events and small things that the school does to give back to the students and the community is certainly remarkable.The only change I would like to see is no change because it’s really beautiful the way it is already.
