Over the course of my four years, I met some very engaging, active, and helpful teachers. Yes, I did mean some lacking, but I feel that my positive outweighed my negative. I did not get school lunch, I brought a lunch from home, but when I did eat the school's food it was not bad at all. They tried to aim for a good meal for the students as well as serve enough that even the hungry athletes are well fed. Academically I was able to preform well, graduating with highest honors and a few college credits to add on.

My educational experience at Phoebus High School has been exciting and very rewarding, along with preparing me for my journey to full my dreams of going to college. From my Principle, Assistant principles, teachers, coaches, other educational staff, and my classmates they have all been an encouragement in helping me fulfill my goals to complete my high school education. And it is because of this I understand what it means that it takes a village to raise a child, and to have a desire to give back to my community one day.
I went to Phoebus all four years of High School and my experience there wasn't always the best but there is a great support system in the faculty. The school had a great Culinary Arts program which I had the amazing opportunity of being apart of, the athletics program was amazing too. The Coaches were always on the players about their grades and didn't make it all about the sport they pushed the mentality of a " Student Athlete" which means they need to worry about their grades before the worry about the sport. But in all honesty Phoebus is a great school it had its ups and its downs just like anything in life.
