Overall, Meade High School lacked complexity in academics and teachers. My experience there was certainly disappointing in terms of education, however, the numerous amount of diverse individuals who attended Meade High allowed me to befriend many wonderful people. The clubs that were offered there greatly varied, providing me with many opportunities to escape my comfort zone, such as Student Magazine. My wish for Meade High School is to improve in cleanliness in all facilities and to hire more stern teachers who are willing to impel us into becoming successful in the future.

When attending Meade High, one will experience the typical high school life. Most of the students at Meade are very friendly and sympathetic to each other. I wouldn't say that there is anything particularly extravagant about my school but I will say that the Principal, Mr. Yore (or Papa Yore to many of the students) is very involved in student life. The students (at least the junior and senior class) is heavily school-spirited. In all of the chaos, the faculty continuously figures new ways to make the school a better learning environment. Some of the teachers seem to be caring of the students and make an effort to help a student in need of help. Overall, I would say that one would never be bored at Meade High and the support is never-ending whether it stems from the students or the staff.
My experience was not terrible. I stayed with a relatively good group of kids and avoided any drama. But I have witnessed and heard unpleasant things from the school. The school’s cleanliness is low, the culture is eh, people fight and rebel against authority; but the teachers are great (as long as you treat them with respect), and there’s a diversity of backgrounds in the students and teachers. My friends from the theater program will tell you that program is awesome.
