High School Sophomore: The teachers at Clinton High School educate the students very well on the subjects they are pursuing in teaching in. They are all very knowledgeable about the curriculum and the subjects they are supposed to be teaching. The curriculum is also very well laid out for the teachers to be able to understand and to be able to teach in the most easiest way possible. The scheduling process is also very simple at Clinton High School. There are really only two steps a student has to take in order to put in the requested schedule they want for the next school year. The workload is also manageable if a student works hard and makes their homework one of their top priorities to focus on. Special study options include RISE, prep times where teachers can work with students, study halls students can use to get help with teachers, and there are also study sessions for certain subjects and ways to schedule meeting times for before and after school to get help from teachers. The most popular classes at Clinton High School that students partake in are Choir, Art and Agricultural classes.

Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
