I truly enjoyed my opportunity to attend South Summit High School. My Father attended there and I really enjoyed interacting with some of the teachers who taught him. The school is staffed by many locals who have lived in the area for most of their lives. I enjoyed being a part of that family. Another aspect of the school that I really liked were the sporting programs. I feel that sports develop many positive characteristics in young teens. This was my experience. I was able to participate in varsity basketball, but not after a working hard to earn it. I tried out for the team my freshman and sophomore year but I was cut. I was initially devastated, but these feelings turned into motivation. I worked hard over the summer and made the team Junior year. As a senior I started varsity. I attribute many of the hardworking habits I have to the culture of the school. A change I would like to see in the school is the dissolving of hostile social groups.

Honestly, I loved being in a smaller school and it was pretty fun to know pretty much everybody. However, this can be really annoying at times because then everyone knows who you are and what’s going on in your life. I wish there wasn’t as much drama between everybody. Another thing I didn’t like was how our teachers taught. Some of the teachers were great and I learned a lot, but there were many that didn’t teach that well and I struggled in their classes because of that. I also wish our teachers cared just a little bit more about us students and helped more to prepare us for tests and college. Another thing that I would like to have had was a heads up about scholarships and which ones were available at the beginning of the year so I wouldn’t have to stress at the very end of the year to try and get as many as I could while everybody else was going for the same ones.
South Summit High School is an amazing school for only having 400 students enrolled, and having a limited budget. The teachers are amazing and with smaller class sizes it is much easier to connect with teachers and other students. I enjoy attending every day!
