Switzerland County Senior High School
- Switzerland County School Corporation, IN
Senior: My overall experience was pleasant. I meet so many friends, and always had a teacher that cared about me and my education. My coaches, in all sports, throughout my high school career always looked after me to make me the best athlete and person. Switzerland County High has overall helped me reached my full potential. However, I would personally like to change our school's policy on prom. For many years people took underclassmen to prom just for the sake of underclassmen attending prom. However, because of it just being brought to light last year, freshmen are no longer allowed to attend prom. I think prom should be for the entire student body (those eligible at least) rather than just for Juniors and Seniors. I think it should be something to look forward to for everyone.

Roanoke Catholic School
- Private School
- Roanoke, VA
- PK, K-12
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.
