During my time at NYC Museum School, I met some genuine and amazing people. There were certainly students who really did well academically, however there needed to be more resources available. Most of the teachers were hardly accessible and the administration was quick to shut down any idea that the students had. Also, there needs to be more help during the college process including essay writing workshops, information sessions on colleges, student panels and scholarship opportunities. This wold prove to give students more of an insight into college and think smartly about where they really want to go. The school has great diversity however, there was a scanty amount of clubs and activities to get students involved in the school atmosphere. By allowing students to make their own clubs and actually have the support of the administration, students would be able to really delve into their interests and feel more at home in school.

Overall my experience in NYC Museum School was pretty exciting. I've made many new friends over the courses of years and I've had fun them. There are also teachers that have made learning enjoyable for me in the school, which I am grateful for. However, few teachers seems undedicated to their job- they ignore the students who play with their phone during their classes and barely teach the class about anything that's useful about the course. I won't point out which teachers, but I sincerely hopes that they start paying more attention to their students' learning or else they should just quit the job and let someone else take over.
At the school, there is Module which is a program that all students participate from 9th-grade to 11th-grade where students learn about a topic through the average classroom teaching as well as through going on trips to museums and other similar instuitutions. This is one thing I found interesting and most of the time fun, about the school. One thing that the school was seriously lacking however was clubs and fun electives that encouraged student interaction in the school, with the teachers and other students.
