When i think about my high school experience, there are many things that come to mind. Some of them are: good memories, bad memories, mistakes, lessons, happiness, heartbreak, misfortune, joy, drama, and most importantly, fun. High School to me seemed like it past by really fast, almost too fast sometimes. I learned many valuable life lessons as well as made life long friends. I learned the value of hard work, dedication, and also how to tell your real friends from the others. It was tough but overall a great experience that i will soon miss.

My experience at school is pretty good. i have never been one to go to football games or dances, but I am very involved and happy that my school provides good programs like Science Olympiad. Our team always does well but not much appreciation is received from the rest of the school. Athletics receive way too much funding and attention, especially when our chemistry room is ancient and our books are falling apart for some classes. It is unique only due to the people who attend high school. In my opinion, high school is pretty much the same everywhere, and individuals determine how good the school is. At our school, one student went to a World Championship for model airplanes (Me), another student is one in 30 in the nation to be a United States Senate Page, and another student went to the FFA National Convention for the talent competition and received 5th place. Even though the school does not offer very much, you can always find something outside of school, which might be more memorable anyway.
Plattsburg is okay. Nothing is really special. It's just a small town highschool with maybe 200 kids in it. The teachers are judgemental and nosey in some cases and the kids are too. The kids are very clique-y and disapline is not consistent from case to case. Strong favoritism is shown to sports kids. Arts gets little encouragement or recognition.
