My experience in Holcombe L. Rucker school of community research comes in many different stories. Being involved in this school and extra curriculum activities immediately made me feel like a part of the Rucker family. More the teachers come in better stories. Every teacher always have positive vibes which brightens my day. They're always there for me no matter what and helped me improve my intelligence and taught me ways and motivated to get higher grades. Something I really like is that I my self feel really safe walking in the building of Holcombe Rucker highschool. It's really safe and everyone is treated equally by the teachers. However somethings that needs to be improved is creating more clubs and extra curriculum activities that way students have the chance to follow their hobbies and create their resume for furthermore advantages.
Rucker is a wonderful school because its a community High School that helps it students into achieving success . Teachers in the school hate to see there Kids fail so they do as much as they can to help! Making Friends in the school is great,people all around are friendly, open minded , kind and Helpful ! Also there are a lot of extra curricular activities. HLR all the way !
