My experience at Soldotna High School was nothing special and I know there are other schools out there that are much better. It had some good aspects like the sports teams that I was able to be apart of and there was also a select few teachers that I have grown close with and have really helped me throughout my high school career. Though, I think the school could make many changes. As I am apart of the Student Council, I get a better look at what is going on throughout the school. I have grown to realize that our administration does not take the time to review the problems we have presented to them in order to help the school. This creates many difficulties as we are just trying to help make our school better. Another problem I have noticed from seeing the point of view of a normal student and being a member of student council is that the student council sees themselves as superior. This intimidates the rest of the student body when it comes to making a difference in the school.

My overall experience at Soldotna High School overall was pretty great. I started going to Soldotna in August and on my first day everyone was surprisingly really nice and helped me get to my right classes. Although, due to the lack of observation from the teachers many students have been doing drugs at school. Whether it be vaping in class/the bathroom or smoking weed on school property. It is very disappointing to me that the teachers at the school don't pay enough attention or just choose not to say anything.
This was a typical small town school filled with mostly charming educators. Maybe not the best quality teaching or programs, but a small enough student body that it was manageable. I would have liked to see more of a focus on diversity and bullying. I was never bullied, but as an adult i have come to the realization that there was a lot of bullying in my high school
