One thing I really admired about Miller Grove High School was the level of diversity and student involvement in school activity. The spirit of the students, school and teachers are very welcoming. I can proudly attest to this because I was once a new student there from an entire different country. I have never felt like an outcast while in school. The enthusiasm at the school about sports is beyond measure, especially the band activities. Sport brought the entire school together, people would often cheer on everyone regardless of race, gender, size or looks. These sportsmanship qualities that the entire school possessed made everyone feel included at all times. If there was one thing that I can change about the school is the parent teacher involvement and come up with more ideas to help the parents have more input into the schools decisions, not too much but just enough to get that family spirit that it already has completed.

Miller Grove is an athletic based school with poor education. There are few teachers there that actually cares about there students education. My experience at that school was a bad experience. I wish the the curriculum was more challenging. If it was up to me I wouldn’t have attended the school. Based on my experience it was just fights and riots, unorganized school, and very rude teachers. The school standards are very low. It’s not about learning it’s about passing there.
I graduated in the top 10% in my class. I had the support from my mom, teachers and counselor, which was my same counselor in middle school. I maintained honors during my high school career. During my 4 years, I was a band student. I knew music was my passion but playing in marching, concert , and symphonic band helped confirm my love. Many opportunities was afforded from this experience. During my senior year, I maintained my grades but life afterwards changed my about college. After working several jobs this past semester, I knew that I had made a horrible mistake. Please choose me for the next scholarship.
