I have so far loved my high school experience for quite a few reasons, one being all the lessons I have learned not only in education but in life. Even when I have been at my lowest, there is still someone who is always available to listen to me whether it be a teacher, a coach, principle or even a custodian. It has taken a lot to get to where I am at now, and I honestly would not be where I am without the help of my high school. Even administrators themselves seem to put their life aside to help out one of the many students they have to be in charge of.

I loved how nice the teachers and staff were. I also enjoyed that the teachers would have tutorials for students who needed more help, and block classes for those that needed more work in a certain subject, I would just change the fact that they favor guy athletes more than girls.
My high school was not very diverse but the majority of our teachers were understanding and caring. The staff would interact with us by passing out wristbands and stickers. If we got a good grade or would help other people, we would get these unity cards and you can win a prize from it.
