The one thing that I liked about Knox High School was the opportunities available for you, how all of the teachers where there by your side pushing you to do you best. They never made you feel like you’re not good enough or smart enough, they proved that no matter what you were worth their time of teaching. Throughout my experience of high school, I have never faced a struggle myself. Teachers to even guidance counselors were always there for me.
Overall I think our school is just a little bit above average in almost everything. First the teacher are all are great at teaching, but even more importantly they are there people you can trust and talk to about anything. The school it self it very well taken care of and I have never had a complaint about the school being dirty. A few changes I would like is get some more dual credit classes, some more resources for the teacher to use in class to help with teaching, and lastly a more simplified rule book that is enforced equally from everyone and to everyone.
