I love the administration and teaching staff for seniors of 2019 and upcoming seniors of 2020 because they prepare you for life after high school, applying to colleges, preparing you for college, helps you apply for scholarship, preparing you for the ACT, and preparing you for the WorkKeys if your interested in the work force after high school. The administrators hold an after school program for not just for seniors and upcoming seniors, but for sophomores and freshman’s as well. The after school program prepares students for college readiness, workforce, and after-school tutoring for classes you are failing. I’ve achieved most of my goals with my administrators help such as getting accepted into colleges and being certified in Microsoft Office Word and Powerpoint, which is a good start for me.

I have had many different experiences at this school. This school has given me an outlook as to what college would be like. Sumter Central has a very broad range of academics. I like that our school is very open to all students, however our school lacks diversity. I do feel like there can be some changes within my school. I feel like my school should be more open to the students' opinions and more open for change. I also feel that my school should improve their athletic program. The students shouldn't have to pay for uniforms or to participate in a sport.
In my four years of attending Sumter Central High School, my overall experience has been pleasant. My study skills and college preparations have improved tremendously. I do believe that I have picked up on many skills that will assist me in being successful when attending a university.
