My school isn't your average High School, we are a family and we never let anyone get left behind. It's hard to say that far a lot of schools but for mine it is was true because we are such a small school for example I have 70 people in my graduating class and were the largest graduating class. Since were a family everyone cares about what everyone is going through and seeing how we can help, for example a student got cancer and everyone did everything they could to make things easier for the family which could have been expenses or just support. One thing I think needs changed at Perry High School is the heating and cooling systems because this winter we have froze together but it mad us a closer family.
There were a few that did go above and beyond. However, the majority just treated it like a job. Teaching is a calling that should be used to reach all students in the conventional and nonconventional approach.

Most of them taught one way and you just better get it. If not,to bad so sad!
