One of the things that I would like to see changed at Stoneham High School is a greater acknowledgement of the students' voices. Being able to understand the perspectives of the students could truly ameliorate so much at a multitude of schools, including Stoneham High School. Although, while there are things that I would change about Stoneham High School, there are also many things that I will never take for granted. At Stoneham High School, there are a myriad of wonderful, caring, and understanding teachers. In my four years at Stoneham High School, I have learned more about the world, and myself, than I have my entire life. Despite challenges, I am immensely grateful for my high school experience.

The academics are very good. I have had a lot of excellent teachers and the guidance counselors are very helpful. I've also made some great friends. However, the school is really old. Thankfully their building a new one, but the one we have right now is just sad. Some ceiling tiles are missing, most of the classrooms don't have any air conditioning, and the desks have really old chewed up pieces of gum stuck to the bottom of them.
There is so much spirit at the school through sports which is clearly the main focus of the school and funding. They could definitely pay more attention to the arts and music programs. Being apart of the Drama Club for all four years of high school I noticed how little the school pays attention to the club and we have little to no support and funding. We have to rely on donations from generous companies and by using our own money to get supplies. On the other hand the football team has basically an unlimited budget filled with new uniforms and equipment and huge events with large crowds. We get nothing and barely and support from the community when the shows come around for public viewing.
