I have attended south lyon community schools since kindergarten. Because I haven’t been in multiple school districts, I have little to compare it to. I believe my experience at south lyon east high school has helped me improve the way I learn. The teachers are very friendly and understand that as a high school senior, school isn’t the only thing I have to do. Many students have jobs and extracurricular activities. The teachers make sure they meet all their teaching requirements without overloading students. The one thing I’ve struggled with is the lack of information we are provided. Whenever there are assemblies or activities, the school gives us minimal details. Overall, I believe my experience in south lyon schools will allow me to be successful later in life.
South Lyon East is a school filled with amazing teachers, and we are held to very high academics standards. Though the amazing building, teachers, administrators, and academics don't always shadow the failing of this school. The school is doing a lot to unite students that aren't like one another, though it seems they are only pulling them out and making them stand out seeming to cause more problems. The students run ramped if administration like them, and they can get away with many different things. Favoring students seem to be a key part of this school system. Though South Lyon East is an amazing school, it definitely has ways it can improve.
