It’s only average because some aspects are very good and others... not so much. Muskegon High school will do just about anything for their students to succeed. They have a plethora of resources and programs that you can go into to get ahead and start what you want to do. However most of those programs act as your incentive to stay in high school. The CTC program, the Duel-Enrollment program, and the Early College program are all programs where you take classes outside of the high school. This is because the high school itself isn’t that great. On average, the students just don’t care about school and the teachers can’t deal with the students. It feels suffocating. I love my high school, but it’s hard to want to succeed and do your best when the environment you’re in is so toxic. I’m glad for the staff, supportive teachers, and these programs, because otherwise it would have been awful.
The thing about my high school is that they play favoritism. What I mean when I say this is whenever I would say fro instance try out for a sport it would either go 2 ways. #1 I get rejected because they already had a set team before I got there, or #2 I got on the team and have no playing time. One thing that I could say that I really liked about my school is its diversity and inclusion. When I first got into this school I noticed that nobody was being excluded from groups because they looked or acted different. Everybody were just living in harmony and that made it really easy for me to make friends, because there was little to no judgement.
At Muskegon high school, anybody who graduated from there is proud to be an alumni. By getting this scholarship, I am able to go to college being a proud alumni from Muskegon high school with my books paid for!
