My experience at Saul was one of the best experiences of my life. I made great relationships with both the students and the teachers. I met so many interesting people and went on so many interesting trips. The variety of clubs at the school making it easy to get involved. They offer four majors; Food,Horticulture, Animal and Environmental Sciences. I majored in food science and I advise anyone interested in the food industry to join this school. Everything was hands on preparing you for your future career. I also received a servsafe certificate which which my teacher did a very good job preparing me for.The smallness of the school makes it easier to know the people around you and make connections with upperclassmen. One thing I would change if I had a chance is to make the student’s major classes shorter. It was so easy to get bored and awaiting the time for dismissal made students unable to concentrate. All in all, I do not regret going there for high school..

This school was just different, Although i never been to another highchool, i know that it isnt the typical highschool experience. Saul has different building just like college that you have to go through ino order to get from one class to another. Saul also has a farm. Saul was just a different experience!
The School is very clean and it has everything I want for my 9th grade experience. One it helps me follow my childhood dreams of becoming a entomologist, and two this school is very good for people who appreciate agriculture.But one thing is that this school isn't for everyone not everyone is going to like agriculture.All in all I really can't wait till next year when I go there.
