Model High School is a small town, low popular school. It is such a tight-knit community, which I find perfect. There is always at least one teacher from each subject with their door open and ready to help. However, I would say that Model lacks enough elective class choices. We are very limited to our electives classes. Most of the ones available, especially for us honors students, are AP level classes. I would like to see a wider variety of elective classes, such as pottery, mechanics, home education, and other classes to prepare students for their future outside of their career.

Model high school has great teachers who invest themselves in their students' lives. However, there were times when the school was not as well organized as one would expect a school to be. Mandatory meetings contradicted with students, schedules, students went months without receiving test scores, students were notified of awards and honors they'd received only days before receiving them, etc. This lack of communication kept my school from getting a higher score.
I enjoyed Model High School mostly because of the teachers I had. I've had some pretty fantastic English teachers, and they've taught me how to be a good reader and writer. What my school is lacking, however, is a good foreign language program. It's great for Spanish considering that we have two Spanish teachers, but the language isn't my favorite. It would be great if we had other options such as French, German, and Russian because knowing a second language is very important in American society due to the fact that the United States is a very diverse country. Rather than only expecting immigrants and those of different ethnic backgrounds to learn to speak English, we should also make an effort to speak their language as well. Overall, I've had a great experience with Model High School.
