My experience at Ross Beatty was amazing I am so excited to be graduating from there in the spring. I would enjoy to see the administration change and spend more money on the school itself and fixing things rather than spending the money on unimportant things. Ross Beatty has an amazing student body we are so diverse and except everybody for who they are nobody is judged or mistreated. Considering our school is so small everybody knows everybody we are all friends and can talk about anything with each other, most schools can't say that. Our classes are not super big either the most students in a class is 30, so the teacher and student get that one-on-one they need to succeed.

Ever since arriving my during my 8th grade year, I have experienced a lot of diversity. I grew up in a very racist, pure white, community. I never experienced much before that, always hearing the insults and cruelty that comes from others. However, after moving here, I understand that everyone is the same and they deserve equality above all else.

Unlike those who follow to occasional, stereotypical high school style, this place is different. Everyone gets along regardless of athletics, academics, etc. Those who do great academically, also count as jocks, nerds, and many other stereotypical nonsense which has been purged at this school.
Ross Beatty jr/sr highschool has its ups and downs, which can be said for any public school, but Ross Beatty does stand out in their wonderful diversity. On the other hand, Ross Beatty seems to be focused on the lesser of important things for the students success. The school should not be more focused on good sport coaches, instead of efficiency in the teachers. The poorness in the teachers is what I would like to see change, or the lack of consideration the teachers have for their students at Ross Beatty.
