I like this high school because it has such high diversity which means I have met many different people from different ethnicities to foreign exchange system. The school is generous and welcoming to all students. The teachers have respect toward their student’s decision in the classroom. This is school has career pathways classes for medical, engineering, becoming a teacher, films, and athletic trainer class. The campus is getting innovated and will be enter in the new building in the school year of 2020-2021. Most classrooms especially the advanced classroom prepare us for college with rigorous work. The high school has AP courses such as Psychology, World History, Biology and many other courses to earn college credit.

I am currently a freshman in college, but I spent all four years of high school at REL. I have to say, at first everything seems pretty overwhelming but there are plenty of clubs and organizations to get involved in so you can find your group! The set up kind of sucks at the moment since it's an outdoor campus, but they are currently redoing it so it will be much better!
While attending Robert E Lee high school, I was not that involved in the school atmosphere and did not exude the same school spirit that many of my peers did. I was mostly in the background and did not mind staying that close to the wall. Being that far away allowed me to witness lots of events from a safe distance. The teachers were kind and all of them completed their job by teaching me the required material needed to advance to the next grade and walk out on stage, diploma in hand. However, the school was not as perfect as I make it out to be; there were a few details I would try to fix. For example, there were a few teachers that simply taught their students no matter if they were listening or not. This angered me deeply as I was shocked how little the teachers did to scold the loud and disrespectful students. To fix this, the first step should be to enforce social contracts created by teachers and their students at the beginning of the semester to establish a standard/principle.
