My academic experience at Suncoast Community High School was amazing and sophisticated. The teachers and faculty push the students to reach beyond their limits and encourage creativity across all programs. On the computer science track, my eyes have been opened to the endless possibilities for women in STEM careers. The learning environment is much like a college atmosphere where students are introduced to subjects by their teachers but students are motivated to take their learning to new levels. The amazing leaders of the school open the day with positive attitudes and work to make a changes necessary for a productive day. The school events and activities are organized and filled with as much spirit as you could imagine. The friends and classmates I have encountered at Suncoast have given me a good view of the kinds of interactions that I could experience in many cultures. Overall I am very content with my high school experience at Suncoast Community High School.
Suncoast offers a very diverse community through which people who have succeeded in middle school at the highest level can compete with one anither and push each other to greater heights. Because of the rigorous curriculum, it forces people to forge friendship and face adversity together. Though that's good and all, this school also comes with drawbacks. For one, their good teachers and bad teachers. Though the teachers here try very hard, there are skme departments that simply do not allow for students to inernalize what they're learning and advance on it. Some of the bathrooms are really messy and need renovations but besides that the atmosphere is supportive. Thoguh students mention hating the school for the amount of work given, eventually it will be worth it when they go to college.
