The IB program was certainly beneficial for the college application process and for keeping me engaged and challenged as a student. Administration and the teaching faculty were always available to help me in any way I needed. Parking was a bit of a pain and a reserved senior spot was very expensive, but overall there was no point over my four years in which I needed something that was not available to me. There could, however, have been some more IB courses made available. Some teachers were wonderful and attentive while others were relatively disengaged, but the materials needed to maintain good grades and prepare for IB exams were always accessible.

my experience at Seminole high school for the past four years has been excellent. Seminole High school offers a strong rage of academics including Ap and honors classes, with great subjects. Seminole High school is home to a very diverse population of student, we come from all races and ethnicities. The teachers at Seminole high school know how important out education is to get into colleges so they teach us to the best of our abilities, and have rules to help us prepare our selves for college. Seminole also has lots of clubs and activities to offer!
At Seminole, I've been able to obtain many certifications in Microsoft Office, Adobe, and CIW. Overall my education has been average. Some teachers really care about their students, while other teachers are straight up cruel to students and don't care about them. The clubs/activities are alright, but the performing arts is all I know. Most of the administration, especially the counselors, do not care about what goes on in student's lives, and just show up for the paycheck. The amount of fights that occur is quite shocking, and it's to the point of where it's disruptive, resulting in the loss of privileges.
