School of Information Technology has been an eye opening experience to me in so many different ways. This school in its own way has shown me the ups and downs of life. The pros to attending this school is that I was able to join so many club and activities. I joined Bible Clubs, Interactive Clubs, FBLA, and Ambassador Clubs. I belonged to all these clubs and they gave back to me: I believe they invested into me a great deal. Because of these clubs I now obtain the skills of being a leader. The cons to attending this school was our education wasn't taken very serious. Because we are located in the heart of an urban neighborhood we aren't really being treated as a priority and with the respect we deserve and the outcome shows up in our students grades and actions. If students begin to feel appreciated I guarantee there will be a positive change in academics and attitude.

I ducked pretty much, the only thing that made school fun was my friends. Teachers are ignorant I hated classes and there weren’t that many resources to help us.
I like School of Information Technology because of its strong diversity, the number of clubs available, the high amount of volunteer opportunities, and it has an administration willing to make connections with students. I would like for this school to offer more career opportunities for students interested in different areas in technology.
