I've been at Samuell since I was 14 years old and I'm turning 18 this December. I like that they have some very dedicated teachers. I would like to see a change in the way they treat their students because they should respect us the way they expect us to respect them. And they should have good math teachers. I've met a lot of good people at Samuell. They should work on our safety there too. Simply for the fact that when you go to school you should feel safe. But that's not always the case. The principals, counselors, and administrators are actually trash to be honest. Most of them are rude and have no manners.

This has multiple problems ranging from the food to the students. First, in my 10th-grade year, and I almost ate rotten Next the teachers that stay and actually want to teach are either fired or constantly disrespected. The school was so old something was either broken or falling apart until they started renovating this year. The students don't care, constantly break rules just cause, and have to expectations lowered for them to pass.
I just graduated Samuell high school and i must say that it is a really good high school. My family was worried at first of me about attending Samuell because there is many people that believe so low about Samuell, but it was truly amazing, there is diversity, a pop of every culture and most importantly safety!
