I feel that Smiths Station High School isn’t a terrible school but it could be better. My experience has been a decent one. I do receive a good education there but I also feel as if there should be more things for the students. When I look at other schools, in comparison to mine, other schools have more things to offer. For example, more clubs and exploratory classes. I also feel like the school staff as a whole could do better and become more interested in the students education. The school could have more potential if the staff and administrators were more involved and supportive.

My experience at my high school has been a positive experience. I have enjoyed my high school years and have worked really hard to maintain good grades . I've made new friends as well as continued friendships from elementary school. The teachers work really hard to teach skills that we will use in college and beyond. I've enjoyed being a member of honors clubs as well as health occupation clubs. I've learned a great deal about the community in which I live because of the community service projects that I participated in for both my school and church. Not only do administrators keep our school safe, but our local law enforcement officers are present on our campus should the need arise.
I love this school! I love the fact that it is in a Small but growing town and has a lot of community involvement. The teachers are always there when you need them, not just academically but with everyday challenges.
