    High School Senior: Overall North Pocono has given me a positive high school experience. I have matured educationally and socially with the help of my teachers and fellow peers. The wide variety of course options and after school activities have given me options and experience for my future career. I was able to join several sports teams throughout my high school years. This allowed me to continue my passion for exercise and building friendships with teammates. I discovered my interest in dietetics and nutrition in a Food and Nutrition class offered in school. I plan on going to college for a nutrition major and pursing a career in that field. If I had gone to a smaller school or a school that did not offer that course I may never have discovered it or would still be searching for career options. I have also made decisions about who I am as a person. I attended a small catholic school until I was a freshman in high school. Coming into a large public high school was a major adjustment, so I adjusted. I believe that experience has better prepared me for college and for my future. I learned how to communicate with new people, and became a more outgoing and friendly person. North Pocono has literally changed me as a person. I am more intelligent, more confident, and ready for college. I am I am very thankful that my parents choose to send me to North Pocono High School, and I believe my experience at NP has adequately prepared me for my future.
