My experiences within West Deptford High school have been great. My school offers so many opportunities for it's students including the high school option's program. This program allows students like me to take both high school and college courses in order to expand their knowledge and become ahead. Also, my school's main priority is to make sure every student is involved in an activity especially sports. West Deptford High School has many group and state championship trophies and continue to collect them through the years. The only thing my school could change is the amount of promoting that they do for certain things. While sports are great, academics are as well. By promoting things such as the High School options program, many more students could be ahead. Overall, my school will not disappoint.

I've been in the school for four years, and I am almost done. I've never had any trouble in this high school. All teachers are kind and willing to work with any of their students. The principal of the school is very responsible, and always on top of things. I made a lot of new friends, and didn't have much drama. When new students come to my school, they are always welcomed by staff and other students. I'm going to miss this school, and I hope future high school students have a good experience just like me. I have no complaints, besides the amount of work, but every school is like that.
West Deptford High School has a huge impact on my life. I've lived in West Deptford my whole life and always heard everything about our school. The sports are what made me love the school the most. Until 8th grade I played soccer but when I reached high school I was introduced to field hockey, which changed my life. I played field hockey for 4 years and it was the best four years of my life.
