I honestly do not like the school building itself. The halls are dark and makes me dread getting out of bed for school everyday. When I walk inside the building, I feel trapped. The hallways are too small and it gets really crowded during passing period. Academic wise, the classes are okay. I feel like the teachers should challenge the students more. Teachers only let us as students do enough to get by instead of pushing us to our full potentials. I understand that they have all the students sit in the cafeteria for safety reasons, but for those of us who do not like people and hate big crowds— it sucks. It is not like we are causing any disruptions to other students’ academic learning, we are simply just leaving the big room that makes us uncomfortable. These are just simple flaws that I believe my school should try to address.

I really enjoyed my time at Parkview high school. It is a cliché saying Parkview was my second family but that is the honest truth. The staff had made me feel loved and cared about, not only about my education but also about my health. The teachers would go out of there way to make sure you are doing alright and if they could do anything for you. I got really involved and that really helped me make good connections with everyone students and staff all around. All I have to say is if you go to Parkview don't be afraid to get involved and out there, the more involved you are the better experiences you will have.
When I first started high school, I thought it was gonna be the worst experience that I've ever had in my entire life when it comes to schooling. But as I got used to the school and the environment, it's actually not bad at all; I met new friends, I gained new student-teacher relationships, I'm becoming more a part of the Parkview clubs and it's not bad at all. The only thing that I wished wasn't about Parkview would be trying too hard, they focus on being the best leadership school when we have our own problems but not to the public. But, other than that; Parkview highschool is alright.
