I love Reagan High School because the students and teachers are very close to each other. Teachers treat their students with friendly and comforting way. They help us with everything we need, including personal things. We can tell them and ask them for help for even family issues. Students are comfortable talking to their teachers about their personal life because they trust their teachers. Another thing I love about Reagan is that students are also very friendly and open-minded. We help each other out with school and other work. I love the fact that students are so close to each other and also with the teachers. Although I love Reagan, one thing I would like to see change is the rules. Reagan is not strict enough. Due to the fact that students and teachers are very close, some students do whatever they want, they take advantage of the teachers and disappoint them. With more strict rules, I believe Reagan will be the public school in Milwaukee, with the safest environment.

My experience at Reagan High School was pretty average, wasn't very good but wasn't bad. Going into freshman year I didn't know what to expect and struggled throughout the year. I struggled with my self identity and who I was becoming. Adjusting the a new environment where I had to do everything on my own was hard for me. I didn't have many friends throughout high school but began making a little more throughout my junior and senior year. Reagan High School is a good school for Academics and getting you ready for the future but students to get more involved with other students.
Going into high school, I didn’t know what to expect. I was welcomed into Reagan with utmost support by teachers and upperclassmen who made me feel welcome. If a student needs help at Reagan, they can obtain it, and quality help as well. There is a plethora of extracureiculars to get involved in, and I chose to be a part of cross country, track, newspaper, NHS, french NHS, link crew, spoken word club, chess club, and international cultural club. These opportunities allowed me to develop a global perspective, and look at the world open-mindedly. The diversity was noteworthy as well. Walking down the halls I saw multiple versions of life, in the form of culture. Differences were embraced at Reagan and for that I am eternally influenced and grateful.
