As a senior in high school, I've struggled a lot with feeling left out and being picked or judged. Lately I have seen a change in my school. People have begun to worry more about school work than they have ever before. I rarely ever see someone being bullied now. I would really like to see more helpful hands in my school. I hope that they find these people sooner than later to help out the students who feel they don't belong, or maybe just struggle in class.

Perquimans is a great place to grow up. The school has their up and downs with administration, but overall at the end of the day they want all the children to be successful. Sometimes it feels as if the adults care more about sports than they do academics, even though we have a good number with sports, we always have a good successful rate, that could be high if they gave students the opportunity. Overall, this school has been a home to me the past four years, teachers have been very welcoming and the principal as well.
My experience at Perquimans County High School has overall been a decent one. I've really enjoyed being in a small high school environment because it has allowed the teachers and students to obtain a one-on-one learning experience. A few things that I did not really care for was the standardized testing and the fact that a number of teachers were not very efficient instructors. One thing I would definitely like to see happen in the future regarding our school is more career based learning and more clubs and extracurricular opportunities.
