What I like the most about Vanguard Collegiate High School is the staff. I like the teachers because they know how to teach in the way I learn. They simplify everything for me and are always there to assist me when I'm struggling. Also, outside of the teaching, their are specific teachers who's classrooms are like a sanctuary for me. Every time I'm going through something or just need to laugh, I go to their classrooms. One specific teacher was my U.S History Teacher Mr. Griffith. He could just tell whenever I was having a bad day or just needed some motivation. He'll tell me to stay after class so we'd talk. He was just so encouraging and caring.

I loved my school and I loved my teachers because, they all are so friendly and they are so awesome. But sometime I felt that I need more help school work by who can patient at me and I fail my regents many times and my heart broken many time. As a 4 language learner English is hard for me and I need people who can understand me better and not treat me like people who are born in here, because people who are born in here can talk and understand than I do and I can't compete them yet. Sometime I felt that teacher's only loved smart kids not like me and it makes me so feel bad and I felt that they don't treat so equally. But anyhow I loved them. Even though I'm not smart or perfect I try all the best I can and show people what I can do and tried. I can't be like real American people but I can show the school by what I can do and tell them I learnt.
Vanguard Collegiate High School is a great school overall. I came here my junior year and I've met many great people and have had a great time! I made amazing friends, joined many different clubs like Model UN and Robotics, and I have prepared myself for college.
