I loved how my high school was such a tight knit community - like a family! The events we did as a school brought us all together, feeling like we were one. The masses were made extra exciting with the fun songs that the band would play. At the beginning of the year, the school would host "WABA/WASTA Day" to welcome the new-comers into the school.

I love how the Bishop Ahr High School teachers genuinely care about you and your academic studies. They notice when something is not right and inquire about it, which says volumes to students. I also love how everyone has so much school spirit! Football games and pep rallies are really fun and rowdy! I love attending them! Lastly, I love how there are so many opportunities to get involved at the school, whether it be through service activities or clubs.
Overall, my high school experience at St. Thomas Aquinas was alright for me. I transferred there from Old Bridge High School in the middle of my Sophomore year. Initially, it was pretty hard to make real friends that I could actually connect with, which is similar to how it is now as a Senior. The classes were pretty hard and challenging, but I maintained a 3.9-4.0 GPA since I have been at the school. I don’t know if there is anything I would change about the school, because the main reasons why I felt like the school was alright was because of the students at the school. Many of them were fake and not genuine, at least toward me in my opinion.
