Michele Clark is a good high school, they give us opportunities most black teens don’t get he chance to get. We get to meet people all the time who can motivate us and help us become young adults. We’re also a STEM which means we’re definitely learning more than others. They give us the opportunity to take advanced classes to test our knowledge. While doing all of the hard stuff as far as school work, we still get the chance to enjoy ourselves and have a little fun every once in a while.

One thing I like about Michele Clark high school is that they have great teachers, great counselors, and a great principal. The teachers at Michele Clark high school cares about students learning and students can have personal relationships with the teachers. Michele Clark counselors is the best, they make sure that everything is sent in for colleges, they make sure that everyone has good grades, they also make sure that everyone is on top of their game with applying colleges and financial aid. Michele Clark also has the best principal. The principal want us to work hard, achieve but also have fun. The principal make sure that we make the most of our high school years and that we accomplish things to make Michele Clark better.
I like that Michele Clark tries its best to be there for the students and give a lot of things we want like a new weight room, new equipment, for baseball. I also like the principle, Charles Anderon and how he gives us anything so we can achieve dreams as best as possible. I like Michele Clark Highschool so much because the teachers and the sports.
