My experience at Motivation was awesome, we were like family. The class sizes we're small and even Ms. Telli (our principal) knew us all by name. I learned a lot and got exposed to different cultures because of such a diverse faculty, staff and students body. I would've only probably changed the food, a little upgrade never hurt any cafeteria.

My experience at High School was an emotional roller coaster. Entering High School, as a teenager, there is of these new emotions and feelings that are new and developing. High school prepares young adults for college, to be independent.
I would choose motivation high school because the teachers work with students very closely. The environment of the school is great, the staff members helps us on everything from looking for a job to colleges that will fit you the best. Motivation high school is like home and a place you can be yourself!
