I personally loved my high school. Their athletics were outstanding and have won many championships in each sport. Most students were honor roll or made principles list. Most students I knew also made National Honors Society including myself. This school takes pride in high academic performance. If students wanted to play there sports they had to keep their grades up. The teachers have been the nicest I’ve met and have helped me with whatever I needed. My favorite memory was “Monzo Madness.” The student donates and raise money for the ALS Foundation and participate in an 18 hour dance-a-thon. The school raises money for multiple foundations throughout the year and the clubs make great changes to our community.
The teacher and administrators were extremely helpful and understanding when it came to academic and personal aspects. I felt supported and as if I was being prepared efficiently for my college education. The diversity also gave me a sense of cultural exposure. The only change I would suggest would to try and hire more teachers, to achieve a smaller class size. Therefore the students will get more individual attention for their education.
