My highschool experience was okay both good and bad impacts. We have some great teachers but also annoying/not the best communicators. Security isn't that bad,they get their job done. Our school needs to fix the library/college office hours for the complete school hours instead of just limited to lunch periods. And we lack resources like laptops, uniforms and school funding for trips. We also need to expand the sports variety like tennis and football. The school also needs an increase in the quality of food and honor societies.

Queens High School of Teaching helped me grew from that shy person to being myself and getting prepaired for the real world. At first you think " Ugh school", but as you come in the security guards will great you and make sure you aren't cutting class, but they are helpful and friendly. Teachers and staff members know you in the small learning communities and are always there if you need help in anything , school work or even hear you out if you are having a bad day. They have so many sports to chose from and we recently got a brand new field sponsored by the Jets!
My time at this school was nothing special or memorable. I did have friends and I did pass all my classes (I rank 2 out of 90). I enjoyed the small class size, which reduces my stress, but my concern is the administration. My senior year is starting but I did NOT receive my schedule (and I never miss the first day of school) and on top of that, I don’t even know what classes I’ll be taking for my final. I wish this school offered a few more honors and advanced classes for students to take compared to other schools and I would only recommend this school if it implements changes that makes it improve over the years and stands out from other schools (in a positive manner).
