Overall, I feel as if Rudder is evolving as a school since we’ve gotten a new principal! I feel as if he’s more involved with his students and administration. He’s making the school a more fun and safe environment for the students and I love it!

What I really liked about Rudder was the teachers being able to connect with the students and relate to them. Being able to start everyday like a new day but remember the previous days like memories. Hanging out with friends that I still connect with and seeing that high school wasn't just about getting an education, it was about learning how everyday was different but knowing that whatever happened throughout high school, we would carry that out with us when we graduated!
While women of the more dedicated teachers have since left since I graduate s in 2015 I feel that too little they helped to change a few student students academic paths. While I feel some teachers need to have more structure in their class and the higher ups should invest more time into monitoring them to ensure the kids are being taught I do not think the school is unsavable. There are a good amount of teachers such as Ms. Huff who will ride students and make sure that we put forth our best efforts to ensure that we will be well prepared for college. Being the average student upon my graduation I wished that I had listened to the teachers but who cared about my future and education. Aside from that the discipline at the school could use improvement, I had to many times of students coming in and being a distraction during class time.
