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.

Model High School cares about your education, and makes sure you always have the help you need. I’ve made so many amazing relationships and memories there. I am positive Model set me up for a successful future and college career. I would not have wanted to attend any other school!
Model High School has so many great characteristics that make it a four star school. There are many teachers there. Most of the teacher there are absolutely splendid. They will spend unlimited individual time dedicated to helping your high school experience be the best as possible. The teachers there are really understanding, abd perfect to confide in. The curriculum that is thought is very reasonable. Most teachers will give an arm and a leg to help you in your class. I am giving Model four stars and not five, because there are a couple teachers that can be quite unreasonable and will not put any effort into making sure you understand. For the most part, Model is a wonderful school.
