At Southeast High School I encountered teachers who care about their students. I noticed that, despite having a bad reputation, the administration made successful attempts at improving behavioral issues from their students as well as their willingness to learn. Southeast have an amazing team that cares for their graduating students as they move on with their lives, whether they plan on going to university, college, or the workforce. This is a department they are very strong in. The head of the college career center, Mrs. Manley, as well as the head of the foreign language department, Sr. Belton, are some of the most helpful people I've met and made my time at Southeast worthwhile.

The teachers at Southeast are amazing! They are willing to help, each teacher has their own teaching style. If the students are willing to work with everyone, they’d improve. So I’d say I wish I could change the students involvement in learning but I can’t force them.. but they should know they are missing out on many opportunities that the school throws at everyone.
My experience in Southeast high school was very delightful, since the school population is very diverse, therefore, many different cultures that occur during the school year. However, I must say something about the instructors and administrations as well, the instructors an administrations are extremely helpful and thoughtful to their students. Always making sure that their students are well educated and safe from and violence that might occur. The staff in Southeast High School will do anything to protect their students from harm and support them in academics.
