This school is very caring and always works with its students to assure our success. The teachers are amazing and I've made a close bond with each one of them. The principal is always here for us and she is always busy with making this school better and better for us students. I personally am glad that I get to be a student here at this school.
My experience at school overall has been very beneficial both academically and personally. I think sports has had the most impact on me because I have learned how to manage my time better since I had both school work and practice to do. It has also developed my character and confidence more because when I am presented with something I think is very challenging, I push myself through it and find out that I could do more than I thought I could. My school tries to reward students for their achievements, whether it is going on a short field trip or giving away t-shirts or food. I would not be able to have the same experiences at any other school and I would not ever choose to attend a different high school.
