First, I like this school because it provides all kinds of clubs that most of students can find their favorite one to fit in. Second, this school encourages students to enroll in some AP Courses to help them be more familiar to college levels. If students feel pressured and ask for helps, there’s always a group of social workers here for them to offer assistance. Third, teachers often take care students and make sure them whether in a good mood in classes. And the last, I feel safe in the school because there always have securities working around the school inside and outside to make sure everything goes normally. That’s why I give excellent for this school because it gives me all kinds of activities that I can find the most fit one, it leads me get involved in college life by studying AP Courses, it makes me feel relaxed and comfortable by having social workers hearing from my minds, and it provides a great environment for me to study without fearing anything else.
What I liked most about my school was how helpful my principal was. He was always there for us, giving us what we needed and wanted, giving us the benefit of the doubt, he was great to us. He was so great to us that it allowed all the staffs to have a visual of how they should treat us, and so that is what they did. They treated us with the same respect and care as my principal leaving us to behave in the same manner. I transferred to this school from Grand Street and I can genuinely say that I’ve made the best choice by doing so. I was so happy in this school. The staff even helped me graduate earlier than I was originally supposed to, making me the first out of my family to graduate.
