What I like about my school is that you are always surrounded by helpful members of staff. The assistant principles and counselors are always there to help you whenever you need them to. Most of the teachers share this these same characteristics as well. A good majority of the students at the school are well behaved. For seniors, my school is especially helpful. On many occasions the staff has put together presentations to help the students who plan to go to college. They showed us how to apply to colleges, what websites to use, and what the deadlines are. There isn't much I would change about my school. I've never really been in a situation at my school where I thought there was a need for change.
I like the administration and how they are on top of everything and handle ay issues you may have. They also make sure all students, teachers, and parents are well informed of any school events or opportunities going on. The career center is very helpful and they make sure you know what your plans are for after high school. There is also lot of school spirit. But the quality of the teaching could be improved. The school is also not always the cleanest and there is always something wrong witht the toilets.
