I am now graduating from Saunders. I can say that these years were very worth sticking with. I can say that although I did not do everything I dreamt of doing at the start- it was still a fun ride. The faculty are honestly the most diverse Ive ever handled. Theyre funny, wity and also clever at making assignments challenging; which is always great in life. In order to improve one must face obstacles to climb over.
There will be people that will put you down with mediocrity- but its awesome when you rise above it and show them that you are deaf to the lies and open to the truth of success! I enjoyed Saunders and I recommend it to all incoming students. #UseYourSkills&Talents2SHINE

I have spent four years in this school and learned a lot from a multitude of experiences. As an incoming freshman, I remember the first day of school jitters and the nervousness I felt. I was alone trying to find my way amongst many others. I battled with social anxiety yet I slowly overcome each obstacle as I grew older. I ended the year on a good note looking forward to the summer. Come sophomore year, I enjoyed it much better than the last year and learned to put myself out there. I made friends, excelled in all my classes and made the best of school. Junior year was actually tough and opened my eyes to the many responsibilities I had coming. I learned the importance of time management, hard work and college. Now I have reached senior year where I'm faced with said responsibility along with thinking about college and my future. It's amazing that four years flew by and though no school is perfect, this will be a part of my memories.
At Saunders Trades and Technical high school, I had many extraordinary experiences, I met such a large number of incredible individuals in the school. The instructors are astonishing and they help out with everything. Well the hospitality here isn't up to par, contrary to a five star inn. We are constrained to our school supplies since we don't generally get funding. Our school offers us a surplus of chances, for example, our magnets. Our magnets enables us to do what we adore and we improved soft and hard skills. We had a safety issue when they moved the enormous lunch tables and cones to hinder and obstruct the ways out. Due to the "one at a time" rule, we are forced to restrain ourselves from soiling our wears. Which is irritating in light of the fact that you're missing a lot of class time.
