I had a great time being a part of the clubs while here, but some of the teachers and administration weren't so great. Everything always seemed so disorganized here. The administration was more worried about girls violating dress code than more important things like walk-outs and some harsh events that took place. They attempted to shield us from anything controversial, which is wrong.

I had a pretty good experience at Southwick High. Being a small high school, you knew everyone and everyone was pretty close. Sporting events and pep rallies were fun because everyone came together to have a good time. However, there weren't a lot of choices for classes and even the advanced classes weren't very challenging. They do not prepare you for college and the amount of work you should expect there. In addition, there could be more resources put into the athletic department. Overall, the school offers a could community feel, but could use some more resources in the academic and athletic departments.
I think that this school overall gave me a good high school experience. There were problems, like there are at any school, but the community is good, and that is always important. The academics need to evolve, and some people are resistant to this fact, so things like teachers and grading can sometimes be outdated and frustrating, but there are a few gems.
