I started going to Stem my 9th grade year and I have a great first experience because I basically knew everyone there and the classes we interesting.What I like about Stem at Showalter is that they try to give us the best education possible and they challenge us.What I wanna see change is the trips we go on I feel like we should take more trips as a school to build a bond and get a chance to really now one another. Also, we really hard at Stem so I feel like we should awarded for how hard we work and trips would be a start.

Stem at Showalter is a good school. It gives some students different opportunities to excel and grow as people. The staff like the principal really have a passing towards seeing us students succeed. Each teacher cares and listens to our needs and moves towards doing something about it. I would infact like to see more staff help in areas such as :how to apply for different colleges, scholarships, events that could really expose us students to bigger opportunities.
I feel as though my experience with STEM has more bad points than good. It's a good high school, however, you must be in the right mindset in order keep up with some of the teachers and their lessons. I'm not just referring to paying attention to the teachers, but also, the teachers paying attention to the students. No matter the grade, a teacher must instruct at a pace that all students should learn from, and in my opinion, there's a handful that do not. Also, we do not have the proper equipment, such as the computers that are filled with viruses, and some, if not most desks are cracked/broken.
