My experience in Munster High School is great. I met friends for a lifetime and I receive a stellar education. I love the teachers and staff of Munster High School. The teachers care about their students and prepare their students well for college. The classes are rigorous yet exciting. Some things that need change is the building itself, I believe. Throughout the building, there are numerous leaks, and the carpet needs a replacement. My school is aware of this, and many renovations have taken place, but more need to be done. Overall, Munster High School, a top-rated high school in the US, delivers an unforgettable experience for students!

High school at Munster was great! It provided me with ample opportunity. There were loads of clubs, classes, and sports to keep me involved. Also, many of the teachers cared about the overall success of their students. I did very well in my years at Munster High School, and I believe it is due to the teachers and clubs I was involved in. If there was one thing I would like to see different at Munster, them encouraging students to get jobs and volunteer more, since these are some of the things colleges look for in their prospective students. Also, maybe they could announce places in the area that are hiring or looking for volunteers.
Entering Munster High School, I did not know what to expect. The school has a positive representation and is known for college readiness, graduation rate, and excelling former students. A safe, learning environment is afforded to all students and staff. Students are given a multitude of opportunities to explore interests through study abroad, speech and debate, band, choir, Area Career Center, and more. The Area Career Center allows students to graduate high school with associate degrees in any field of choice. Students are also given the chance to take classes that will count for college credit. Diversity is a major component of the learning experience. The different backgrounds, cultures, religions, and ethnicity exposes students to the uniqueness of humans. Of course, Munster is not a perfect school, but it is a good school that I would recommend to younger generations.
