Strive Prep-RISE is a very unique school. I have really enjoyed my last four years at RISE. Overall, the teachers have been very supportive and understanding. Being part of a small school of only about 500 students, I have received a lot of one-on-one support which has lead to my success in high school. It is a new school, meaning there are not as many opportunities in choosing classes, sports, clubs and activities. But as a growing school, there has been an increase in student involvement which has made my experience much better. RISE is a social justice school, which is also a very different attributes and has made my high school experience very unique.

I think RISE does a great job of making everyone feel included and apart of something. I also believe all the teachers and staff are hardworking. They also genuinely care about the students and their futures. In all my years of going to school I have never met a more kind group of adults. Another reason RISE is such a great school is because it gives so much power and opportunity to the students to make the school how they want it to be. To speak on opportunities, staff set up internships for students to be part of and get experience in the field they wish to work in. Not to mention how consistent they are on trying to prepare students to go to college through our junior and senior sem classes or taking college trips out of state. This is something not a lot of schools have the chance to do. Obviously any school isn't going to be perfect but I would say RISE tries to make the high school experience as best they can for their students.
As a student at Strive Prep RISE, I have grown as a person and learned many new thing. I really appreciate what school I come from because it has always pushed me to be my best, and allowed me to meet people of different backgrounds. At my school, we have developed programs and clubs from the bottom to where they are now; fully developed programs that are competing against other schools. We have been given opportunities that no other schools have gotten like go out of state to visit colleges or to compete in Speech and Debate competitions. I am glad to be apart of the founding 2020 class of Strive Prep Rise, where we have created a school that will last for the next few years after we leave.
