I had a great experience at Seward High School. I developed my love for basketball and that helped me decide to continue to play basketball at the college level. I was involved in many different clubs and activities that helped me make friends and find my interests. I got to have a lot of cool experiences through FFA and I even got to travel a little bit. Seward had a lot of opportunities to get college credit before college and I was able to take many advanced classes. I learned a lot about a variety of subjects, and had some amazing teachers along the way. I was also able to be involved in a lot of community service projects throughout my four years of high school. I was also able to take on a lot of leadership roles at the high school that helped shape me into who I am today. For example, I was an ambassador for the high school. I got to help take new students on tours, help with parent teacher conferences, and assist the administration with various tasks throughout the year.
There are many things that we as humans do in our lives and attending school is one of them. Not only has Seward High taught me many valuable lessons such as respecting our elders and getting our work done and turned in on time, but they have also taught me to be diligent and to think for myself. Many things that attracted me to the Seward school system was that they have excellent teachers and staff, update the school for a better learning environment, and care about the kids who get to go to school there. Seward High also has some of the best students from the state, but that's because the school only chooses the best of the best teachers. However, the school is not perfect. Seward High should up-date the school because a lot of the stuff we have is from a decade to many decades ago. The school could have better ways of managing some students on a one to one basis, but they do a great job for what they have to put up with sometimes. Lastly, the school could fix the track and field.
I liked the various opportunities we had to take more challenging classes. There was a lot of different classes that were offered at the school, although they didn't offer as many as I would like. I would have liked to get more college credit, but the school didn't offer the classes I need to take for college. The staff was overall not too bad, there are a few teachers that I think the schools should not have allowed in and the administration is ridiculous over the dress code, it is very demanding of us all. There is always room for improvement.
