I loved many things about Sunrise Mountain High school. I love the way our school brings intense school spirit at football games! I love the different CTE classes we have the opportunity to take! I love how amazing the administrators at our school are. Every time I walk into the Sunrise Mountain High school campus I know that I am 100% safe! Among the fact that Sunrise Mountain has many great features, there are also things that Sunrise Mountain can work on. Sunrise Mountain High school needs to put an emphasis on the importance of college so students are not scrambling senior year. There needs to be a universal understanding implemented that students have jobs and so due dates of major assignments may need to be more flexible.

Throughout high school, I began to examine the students and their behavior. There are two levels of students, those include pupils that want to attend college and those that just want their high school diploma. The students have the opportunities to achieve their goals, but it's up to them if they wish to pursue it. They are in control of themselves. The past teachers have all been strict and wish the very best of us. They have assisted and molded me into a well-rounded student. I am a miner!
Throughout this school, I had many diverse experiences who transformed me from what I was to an improved and independent form of what I was. All it has given helped me become more curious to trying limitless paths, become more responsible towards adulthood, and become prideful to whatever comes to me. The rigorous classes, the sunrise people, and the growing potential are what will be seen in this school as it is their eye of success and mind of our world. It is the administers and the staff that are the light to our roads, they will spend as long as they need to help as many students as they can. However, it needs to try new ways of spirit and involvement to the sunrise people and parents of the sunrise people. If continued, the school misses out in one of the most important lessons the world gives us: Change is what creates a person, it is what creates the need of evolving and challenges, and it is applied to more than just the school for all people alike.
