I love this school! I've met so many great friends and teachers from this school. I've improved academically, socially, and emotionally. Teachers truly care about the students, and they are also very passionate about teaching. This school has such a wonderful history and culture. The school environment is clean and safe. Also, we have great resources for students if they need help such as Harvesters for food, College and Career Center for college readiness and life after high school, and BullDoc for free physical examinations and glasses. Our school community is very close-knitted. We welcome different looks, shapes, races, and diversity.

Goal setting is a skill that develops over time. In fact, it can even be described as an art. To become a successful goal setter, you’ll need to get to know your own work habits and motivators. Setting unrealistic goals gets discouraging quickly.
Successful high school students don’t disappear outside the walls of their classroom. They are also engaged members of their community. Get involved with issues that impact your student experience. Educate yourself about the issues facing your community and learn to use your voice productively so that people will listen to your ideas.
Many students complain about their school life. They say school is like a prison. Is going to school really that bad? I don’t think so.

We are free to make our own choices at school.We can choose what subjects we want to do. If you are not interested in studying some subjects, you can opt for other things like music, art, or PE. You can join clubs and make friends with people who have the same hobbies as you.

We can have fun, sing, talk and play games during breaks. School life is full of joy and laughter – something that cannot be found so easily later in life.

I can’t imagine what my life will be like after I leave school. Will my colleagues at work be as caring as my classmates? Will my boss forgive my mistakes like my teachers do? Will I lose my passion for life when I have to go out into the real world?

School provides us a with a good environment in which to grow up. I am going to miss my school so much when I graduate.
