I enjoy the design class in my school. Design studio class allows me to challenge myself in the making of projects. All throughout this year I have been working on a high school model. The challenge was to incorporate a high line next to the high school model. I had to make floor plans of each floor while using a scale. I also used sketch up and finally build my high school and high line. I build the model using fake trees, wood, and foam core. It was a interesting project and made me use my creativity.

There is various amount of help from staff and students throughout the entire school. The schools tries to maintain the career base of every student. Staff and faculties always greet and keep everyone on task. Students are engaged to various clubs, activities and sports in the school. The school has connection with companies and STEM related programs.
My experience in Urban Assembly has been a pretty average experience like the normal highschool scene. There can be more academics within the systematic school cycle for example neuroscience or music. It's highly important that the faculty listens to the students about safety, the food, and the academics because without these items creating a stable environment then the school will eventually become chaotic in such a manner.
