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.

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.
I transferred to Reservoir High School at the end of my sophomore year and ever since I have been there, I have only improved academically, mentally, and also as a person. There were so many resources and opportunities given to me. The encouragement I received from the school was very impressive. I was encouraged by my counselors and teachers to join many clubs and to take many challenging classes. I went from having no AP and honors classes to taking 3 AP classes and 2 honors classes and also being in 4 different extra-curricular activities. My GPA has increased greatly because the environment in which I was in persuaded me and challenged me to be the greatest I could possibly be. Reservoir High School truly shaped me into a better student and person by encouraging me and by introducing me to many types of people.
