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.

Overall, I had a great experience at Munster High School. There are several extracurricular activities ranging from music, culture clubs, and sports. I participated in numerous activities throughout my four years which created strong friendships and numerous amusing memories. I felt like I received an excellent education that has prepared me well for college, especially the AP classes. The majority of the teachers genuinely care for their students. I connected well with most of the teachers I had; however, some teachers need more training. Though there are few, some teachers appear to be underqualified and unmotivated to teach. Another small issue I experienced was the students. They can be cliquey, but students eventually find their niche.
My experience at Munster High School was great! There's a phonomonal marching band, lots of sport activities, and fun clubs to join. If I could change anything about that school I would like to have the teachers train more in taking notes and lecturing. They're great but sometimes it's inconsistent on who's great and who's not.
