Atchison High School
- Atchison Public Schools, KS
Alum: Of course it was high school, and high school kind of sucks no matter what. One thing I can boast about my school is that around halfway through my years there, the entire arts program skyrocketed, especially the performing arts. There are plenty of decent teachers in the district, and a couple of truly exceptional ones as well. The AfterProm was also a lot of fun. I do still wish that Home Economics and Personal Finance were required classes. Those are the ones I most wish I had taken, looking back.

Pleasant Ridge High School
- Easton Unified School District, KS
Senior: Pleasant Ridge High School is a very good school all together but just like any high school there are things that can change. For example the way our teachers teach are not exactly good ways. Some teachers want to be like college professors so that is how they teach their class, but other teachers slack on the important stuff we are suppose to know and go into depth on the topics that aren't as important. Now our school isn't all that bad. We just got new water fountains (which we have been needing for a while) that can also fill up your water bottle. We also got a lot of new equipment and a brand new make over for our weight room! Altogether our school is excellent and they gave us just as much opportunities just like the other bigger schools in our area.

Atchison County Community Junior/Senior High School
- Atchison County Community Schools, KS
High School Senior: Teachers at my school really care about student success and are willing to do anything for us. In order to keep up with my rigorous academic schedule, I usually stay after school a couple times a week. My teachers have no problem with me and my class mates asking for help out side of school. In fact, if I'm doing my homework and I need help, I can simply email my teacher my question and they will email me back with assistance in a short period of time. My school doesn't have the best student body, there are more "bad kids" than good. I respect my teachers and staff at my school because I know they aren't treated with the respect they deserve. Even though our district has some down falls including old facilities, lack of adequate financial flexibility, and a large amount of students who do not care, I wouldn't change a thing about my education. Attending Atchsion County Community High School has opened so many doors for me. Being apart of National Honor Society and Kays (a serive organization) had allowed me to give back to my community. As a member of the student council, I've learned valuable leadership skills that will continue to help me later in life. As a member of math club and science club, I've been given the opportunities to extend my education by attending trips and competing in competitions. I was asked to become a mentor for a seventh grade student. As a mentor I meet with Gage once a month to look over his academics and to talk about any social problems that occur within the school. Being a mentor has evolved my "people skills" and has inspired me to do more for others.

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.
