Reservoir High School is a great school that makes its students feel safe and comfortable. I love most of the teachers and I love the friendships I have made over the years. Most of my friendships have come from extracurricular activities, and Reservoir provides a variety of sports and clubs! The only thing I would change about Reservoir is that since test scores are the majority of your grade, I feel teachers have to really make sure their students know the content to the fullest so everyone in the classroom can have the same opportunity to succeed.

My favorite part of Reservoir High School is the diversity of the school. I believe that the school can be much better than it already is by being more engaged in the students' life and taking a more active approach towards college readiness. It's not that the teachers do not prepare the students well enough, it is because the students do not take advantage of education, they take it for granted. There also needs to be a change in the taste of the food. I know that it's supposed to be healthy but I started to bring my own lunch to school during my freshman year because the cafeteria food was so disgusting, this needs to change.
Reservoir is a great place for students who are focused and know what their goals are. It is very easy to get distracted here but that isn't entirely the schools fault. Reservoir has done a great job of teaching advanced material and staying on track with the curriculum, but I would like to see a better representation of cultures and diversity in the schools. The high schools in Howard County teach at least one language from every continent, Asia, North/South America, Europe/Middle East etc, except for Africa. This needs to change. Reservoir specifically needs to do a better job of carrying for its troubled youth, these kids are usually given too many slaps on the wrists and the affects are very damaging to those kids. These kids later become a distraction to themselves and the learning environment.
