I joined the school as a junior. Honestly it was great experience in that School. I had max help from all my teachers speacially my principal. My principal and the assiantan principal they helped me understand what's college, how to pay, where to go and everything. We kids think they not helpful. It's wrong, it's all about us to have responsibility and go ask them. We ask they will never fail to help us and I'm talking with great experience. My US history teacher was the best, he didn't just help me with the subject, he helped me solve all my issues. My school helped me with a summer job too, they helped me apply to college, financial aid and Everything. It's tough to Graduate within just 2 years of school but i did with the help of my school staff. Kids in school were really Chill and helpful. There weren't much violence. Over all I really like my high school and I really miss them now.

I am giving the programs an "okay" rating ONLY because of the extreme dedication of some teachers, coaches and other staff members to student improvement. Many of the teachers that I encountered were willing to invest more time into the programs, all in the name of the students. Improving student teacher relationships and the quality of education available to the students that were willing to invest themselves. The quality was never very high to begin with!
I felt that soon after graduation I lacked a compass. In the sense that even though I knew what career I wanted to pursue, I did not know what steps to take. Even though my High School had a system in place for preparing students for the "college life" it wasn't thorough or effective. I say this because few students took the recommended steps and chose not to apply themselves. Even after going through the steps, I felt as if nothing good came from it!

I believe that many more things can be done to prepare students and parents alike for college planning!
