On Teachers: Most professors I had were inspiring and motivational, but a few were horrid. Some teachers tried to threaten my grade for their own personal reasons (perhaps racism), and although I did all the work and passed exams with an A, they only let me pass with a C-. I will never understand why.

On Health & Safety: I have been bullied, but not as bad as other students. I have witnessed a few incidents, and the worst part is teachers and people of authority have little interest in dealing with it.

On Academics: As far as academics go, teachers are alright. There are some who stand out and are really there to teach, and then there's some who are there to pay their bills.

On Educational Outcomes: High school has made me realize to always put my best foot forward no matter what circumstance I am put in. It doesn't hurt to put in a little effort for a better chance of success, and that motivation grew within me since high school.

On Extracurriculars: The extracurricular opportunities at this school are superb. With a wide variety of clubs to choose from, I personally got involved with one that related to my main focus. I join FHA-HERO for 2 years, and got the opportunity to compete with other high school students at state finals. In my senior year I became President for FHA-HERO at my school, and it has helped me learn and demonstrate leadership skills I never knew I had!
