For being at Interstate 35 since I was in kindergarten, it has been well. The staff and the students are all very nice and they all know you and want to help. The thing I like most about I-35 is that it is a small school making the classes small. This way, the teachers get to connect with the students and help them individually. Somethings I would like to change are school lunches, phone policies, and the girl's dress code. The dress code for the girls has been the strictest it has been in many years.
I have enjoyed going to this school my whole life, and it has been fun growing up here with everyone. I love how small my grade is as well as our school as a whole because everyone is friends and we all look out for each other. It is also fun since everyone knows everyone, and we all talk, so we all know what is going on when something does happen. Since our classes are also small, the teachers care about us and genuinely pay attention to how we feel and are always willing to help us out if something is wrong. I do wish there were more classes offered, but I love the ability to take college classes online here. Our sports are fun and since we have small teams, it is nice we do not have to have tryouts, so anyone can play all four sports if they want to and be constantly active, it is really nice this way.
The science and math programs are great! We could use more food for lunches, but it's good. The culture and environment are great. We are a small tight nit community that supports each other. My sister got to sing at Caregie Hall because of Interstate 35. They have many opportunities for students.
My experience was good, but I think that many areas in the school could change. I think that the way the education system is set up it does not prepare someone for college. The math program does not teach math in a way that people can learn. The school environment is fun, but I would really like to see the education system be changed into making kids motivated and ready for college.
I attended Interstate 35 from pre-k through 12th grade. It is a small school, but everyone knows everyone and I love that. The school is very nice compared to those around it. It has brand new facilities and is working to improve itself by both size and academics.
Being a student at Interstate 35 my entire life, I like that we have a close community and know everyone at our high school. Unlike bigger high schools, we get the benefit of having a friendship with everyone in our high school hallways, including underclassmen. One thing that really needs upgraded is bullying awareness and the consequences. At Interstate 35, I believe that the school should have more strict rules. As of right now, the victim gets the same consequence as the bully, which is not fair of the victim unless they lead it on.
