Going to Rockaway Park High School provided me with an unforgettable experience. The teachers are all friendly and are always in a working mood. As good as staff and faculty sound, what the schools they provide and the students is a problem. Rockaway Park shares a campus with a couple of other schools, which leaves us with no space for classes and other extracurricular activities. The students attending Rockaway Park is a problem because from what I see, they accept almost anybody even those that were constantly in trouble. This leaves students that are just trying to do their work with an unsafe environment, there are a lot of fights occurring with new incoming delinquent freshmen.

My experience at Rockaway Park has been a memorable journey. I love Rock Park because I always felt very comfortable expressing my new ideas, it is a very diverse school, and I am able to converse with others without hesitation. Being taught how to play the guitar by my music teacher in the school studio room was one of my best experiences. Having music as a class helped me improve my vocals also. Not only was it my music class that made my experience great but the teachers did as well. If I was ever struggling or needed guidance I could always count on my favorite teachers to help me get through it. My experience at Rockaway Park high school has been a memorable one but there are a few things the school can improve on. There should be more extra curricular programs and more funding for the school itself. Other than these two downfalls Rockaway Park is a great high school.
I've only been in RPHS for only two years. My experience with the school was good overall honestly. It's been a very hepatic adventure to establish in where I'm at. I'm currently a senior, and I'm very eager in embarking my career with getting accepted into a good college.
