My school is very good academically because it offers a variety of stem prjects and intresting programs that can be done going to the school. For instance, there are biomedical and engineering classes specifically designed in order to help peoeple into different majors and help with the advancement before. Additionally, they offer advanced college level classes which helps the students prepare for classes. Although they offer a vairety of things to help a student prepare a college, they could help with creating more diverse and intresting clubs to help the students experience a lot more from education. also the technology could be imporved to help more people learn at a time while being able to access and download things that would make the learning experinece easier and worthwhile. Other than the problems presented, The school has good advantages and a safe environment.

I have been at Orlando Science Schools since 6th grade, and since then I fell in love with the positive and stimulating environment. Events like home visits and traveling out-of-town to competitions gave me the opportunity to create a deep bond with the staff members, and I continue to be inspired by their commitment to our student body. Furthermore, I have prospered from the cooperative effort that my peers and I have put into our studies. I think it is important to immerse yourself with those who have a similar drive to learn, and I am thankful to have created a loyal friend-group that has a sense of motivation to collectively achieve. I initially had hoped that the school would host more activities to engage the student body and give us a high school experience. But thankfully, as our size expanded we were able to establish events for the first time, such as homecoming and senior trips. I wouldn't change a think about my time at OSS, since the school truly shaped who I am today.
First of all, I want to say that I have been attending to this school since elementary school and all I can say about this school is that I love it. Since elementary school, the school faculty members and staff have been taking care of me. They are sweet and kind hearted and the teachers have always helped me out. The school also offers many extracurricular activities, such as, math competition, science olympiad, etc. I have been in both math competition and science olympiad for years and I really enjoy it a lot. Math competition has improved my math skills by so much that I skipped two years of math class. There are also different types of clubs that the school offers, for example, fencing, soccer, volleyball, etc. Honestly, I have tried out many of these clubs and I find all of them very interesting, fun, and diverse. All the teachers are trying their best so we could get into the top schools. I love this school.
Its not a typical high school because it is much more than that.
