I attended Raytown High School all four years of high school (9-12). There was not a day that passed by that I did not enjoy waking up and looking forward to having such a great day at this school. From the amount of activities to be involved in to the teachers great teaching ethics this school was great. Throughout my years if attending this school, I had all of the resources that I needed from receiving an education to being counseled my senior year when applying fr colleges. The amount of support from administration and staff was out of this world. They were always big on pushing students to be their best. I personally feel that if it wasn't for the staff pushing me to be great and guiding me down the right path, I would not be on my 3rd year of college. To this day I still communicate with some of the staff because they are just that great. These are some of the people who have inspired me to want to pursue a career in education. All around I would rate my old high school 10/10!
My first year of high school experience was not in the best of circumstances. Online learning was difficult to transition to, because of Covid-19 I feel like a lot of experiences were stolen from me. Even though it wasn't the best I did learn something about myself through the process. Firstly, I have poor time management, secondly I get distracted easily. I had 2 B's and probably a C. And the C was in one of the most easiest classes band. I missed lot's of opportunities simply because I thought school was an option. I had better participation in classes I thought were important, and my grades weren't the best. I just could have done a lot more to improve over all. In the second trimester we did have the option to do in person learning, and having the teacher there and being in person made me more focused and I participated way more. This improved my grades leaving me with 6 A's and 1 b. I could have done better overall, but this was a good learning experience.
The first year of High School was very inviting of course, the students there are very lively and not all about themselves. The hallways however are usually packed and the flow of traffic is not very organized. The school spirit our school has is astounding and so amazing to watch. You feel like your school is the best with how hype and excited we get before games. My senior year currently is not how I thought it would look, but online is not as bad as it was when we started it at first. It is more organized than when they started online on a whim because nobody was prepared. Although online school is very hard to learn and stay engaged, I wish we would have gone back to school. Our school had a few renovations done to it that I saw driving by, they redid our field and parking lots that looks very nice and more inviting to students that are new and students that don't go to this school.
