First, coming into Progress Highschool I was very anxious because it was in an area I was not familiar with. Then stepping into the school I felt as if I did not belong. However, I then began to realize that's how everyone felt. I enjoyed many things about my high school. I met many different people which resulted in lifelong friendships. What made it even better is that we all were diverse so everyone learned new things about different cultures which was great. However, what I did not really enjoy in school was the teachers and staff, es, understandable that they are doing their job, however, they weren't many fun activities that were available to do. In my eyes, I felt as if they focused more on the students who played sports being that Grand Street Wolves were an amazing football team. Other than that, I do not regret going there, it was a great experience.

I love Progress high school! It has many great opportunities for students and parents, I like how teachers help students to be a better person for the future and also how they Help us to get good grade, I don’t have words to describe my school, I just love it! Like many other students.
As a senior in Progress High School and Hispanic I like that my school has a diversity of cultures to get to know others that are unknown to me. I like to study and more when I'm in a good environment. A school should be taken with care because it will be your "home" for half a day and you do not want to be sleeping or bored. That is why I believe that progress high school is an option to attend because as a student we want a place in which to feel good with others and with ourselves. In addition, teachers are really interested in the student learning and this is in addition to their grades. I am very pleased that there are programs to help junior and senior to get college ready. Something that I would like change about progress high school is that bilingual classes are always the last to get involved in the activities or programs that are in the school. However this year I see that they have given more attention to that part and we are all getting the same information.
