The heart at my high school is unbeatable. Although the school itself is very poverty stricken, the teachers try their very best to make up for this with fun, quality education. One thing I would like to see change is the school building and school materials. The school is old, and the materials in the classroom are inadequate for today’s technological classrooms. Most classes haven’t received new school books in seven or eight years, and we only have classroom sets so we can’t take them home.

My school experience was mostly good. I met great friends that I know will last a lifetime. My graduating class was like a family. We enjoyed sporting events and extra curricular activities. Most of the teachers are friendly, and willing to help. On the other hand, some teachers did not care about their students, only how their grades made them look as a teacher. Some teachers were also very manipulative and rude to students and faculty. This created a sense of dread to go into some classes and made learning difficult. As a student who advanced to a 4 year university, college was very difficult to adjust to. I had to work very hard to get on my feet. I think the school could better ready students for life after high school.
The problem with the entire Marion County School District is that there are three high schools, one has approximately 200 kids, one has approximately 300, and another has approximately 600. All three of these schools should be consolidated but each town is so focused on athletics that they can't get past it in order to better our education. A consolidated school would eliminate a lot of the current budget issues, reduce county costs, limit school rivalries, etc.
