My experience at Jim Hill High School was a very memorable experience. From my freshman year up to my senior year it has improved. My freshman year was very shaky year simply because I did not know anybody. I didn't fit in with anybody, I was shy, didn't participate in any school activities, etc. But then my sophomore year came with many fulfilled memories. I met two of my greatest friends and I participated in a band activities as a drill team manager. Then my junior became even better by me being known as a Jim Hill Cheerleader. Being a cheerleader is one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me. It made me a stronger person mentally and physically. Now with me being a senior is the greatest accomplishment in my life. I can't wait to walk that stage on May 23rd and finally say that I have officially made it to being on my own. . Being at Jim Hill brings many opportunities and that's the greatest part about attending Jim Hill High School.
My experience with Jim Hill High School is great. The teachers care about your education. They are willing to help you out after school if you need the help. They assist you with anything you have a problem with the work they gave you. As far as food, the food is poor, we don't have full meals. With the administrators and security, I feel safe . There is at least 2 security officers in each hallway. The administrators are in the office and hallways in case of emergency or problems with people or something of that nature.
