Being a student at Roslyn High School has taught me a lot about the people around me as well as myself. Recently a film actually came out about our school, and I think parts of it really did do a great job about talking about and describing the type of school it is. Luckily for myself, I can say that I had a positive high school experience, but I know others that did not. I truly believe that I had this positive high school experience because I emerged myself in clubs and activities that I enjoyed. I also found friends who treated me well and friends who made me smile. Roslyn is known for its academics and I truly do believe that the teachers and staff do a great job teaching us and getting to know each student. I believe that Roslyn does prepare its students for college when it comes to the academic part. I know that when I go to college I will bring a lot of things that I leaned in high school and that I will miss high school a lot but I am definitely ready for this next journey.

Roslyn High School is a school with strong academics and an encouraging staff. I liked the self-selection option with choosing our courses and the various clubs and activities offered. This gave the students the opportunity to dabble in classes they were passionate about. Furthermore, the many courses offered at Roslyn High School reflect the abundant resources that can be utilized by its students. The teachers and the administration in general communicated frequently and well with their students and were very approachable. While I enjoyed my overall experience here, one place this school is lacking in is in the diversity of its students. There is an overwhelming amount of Caucasians, and a much smaller percentage of other ethnicities. Overall, however, this school is certainly a good one.
My high school experience was very academically competitive and at times socially exclusionary. Diversity is something that should really be improved at Roslyn!
