My personal experience at Lyndon B. Johnson High School has taught and build me into the respectful, independent, and well mannered young lady I am today. I’ve attended this amazing school since my freshman year and thankfully all throughout my four years of education I have been given a very high level of high school courses as well as college courses thanks to the Early College Program. These courses have been taught by only the best of the best teachers. This whole school is kept at a healthy environment thanks to all the staff and administrators there. The extra curricular clubs and organizations offered here at Lyndon B. Johnson give the students a variety of clubs and or organizations that allowed every student to join something of their interest. For example, ever since my freshmen year I’ve been part of the LBJ Dreamcatchers Dance Team. This team has had a positive effect on my four years of high school.

My experience in Lyndon B Johnson High School has be great! This high school is growing drastically and is opening up more programs for every student. For example, about 3 years ago they started a program called Early College and they have Duel Enrollment and Gold Program. In addition, each and every one of the administrator, counselors, teachers etc help each and every student that needs of assistance like if they need money, transportation, or simply help in school work. Lastly, if the school continues to do all of this in the next few years will be even better!
Lyndon B. Johnson High School was everyone's average high school. It does not stand out very much in comparison to the other three high schools in its district. Many would like to see LBJ as the "under dog" of the district. the school, clubs, teachers, and faculty all do a good with their job. But the reason why it is seen in such a way, and why it has its reputation of being a poor school, is because of the students. The students are disobedient and very unorganized in ways to where their behavior makes this school be seen as what it is and is not given the respect it deserves. I wish for the reputation to change and for this school to be seen in a better way rather than to be downgraded just because of where it's located and how the students are.
