The only aspect I really like from Oxford is the tight knit community the students have with one another. Everyone is really friendly towards one another which is amazing! However, Oxford is an overall terrible school because of the way it's run. The administration always talk about giving the students and teachers what they want but they always do the complete opposite, ultimately tarnishing the school's reputation. Oxford doesn't have great teachers or faculty like everyone says we do. The students themselves push themselves to make themselves better, overall making the school's reputation better. It has really nothing to do about the teachers, faculty, or even our parents.

Students at Oxford Academy are surrounded by a protective bubble that separates them and protects them from many of the typical dangers that are associated with high school such as drugs and bullying. Students at Oxford are truly part of a family as each grade is composed of 200 carefully selected students that are together for six years. The true reflection of a community and familial aspect of Oxford Academy is reflected by my grade especially: when a student passed away in our grade, our class united and supported one another through hard times. Despite such a great community, Oxford is a competitive environment that sometimes causes students to question their worth and harbor insecurities as our student body is composed of exceptional students. We literally have students who have met the president or been to Antarctica! However, despite such drawbacks, this competitive environment pushes every student to push their boundaries and truly reach their full potential.
Oxford boasts a rigorous curriculum that challenges students and prepares them for college. The high school teachers are very knowledgeable about their subjects and actively support the students' learning with interactive learning and by offering out-of-class support. Despite tough academics, students are still able to balance sports, music, and other extracurriculars with learning material and homework. However, there is a highly competitive spirit among individual students, as everyone's goal is to be accepted into the most prestigious college. As a result, students tend to avoid activities that do not actively help them get into college or at least help them put something on their resume. My goal is to change this self-interested attitude and help students see a greater cause for serving others in the community- out of the bare necessity of solving problems that they are capable of solving problems, not for personal gain.
