I love Batavia High School! It's a friendly, safe environment with people from all different backgrounds that come together to learn. During my senior year, I've noticed how close my senior class has become. We all support one another and don't judge each other. All of our differences compliment each other and help us go outside our comfort zones. One thing I would change is to have a more collaborative learning environment between teachers and students, so that both can work towards the common goal of education excellence at Batavia High School.

Parents' would never send their child to a school that is not safe. Luckily, parents in Batavia do not have to fear for their child's life everyday while they attend school. Unfortunately, Batavia health & safety laws have been tested before. In 2009, a child was diagnosed with the swine flu. However, the city of Batavia was calm and precise of cleaning the schools and preparing all classes for a healthy environment. Further cases in Batavia were nonexistent, thanks to board of Batavia. Meanwhile, in 2015, multiple Batavia schools were put into lockdown after an armed man caused a scene in a nearby neighborhood. Thankfully, the principal notified all staff and students immediately. The teachers admirably handled the event in the calmest manner. Safety within the school, therefore was never a concern. I never would have known danger was so close .

What makes Batavia High School so unique is our school spirit and community sports events. Everyone goes to football games, and when I say everyone, I mean everyone. Stands are packed every Friday night, it's difficult to find seats for the varsity game. Our school offers a student section called the "Dog Pound", I myself have not been in the dog pound because I have been on the track cheering on the team. Students come to school on Friday's dressed in bulldog pride and you can bet that everyone would be at the game. Community members who don't even have sons/daughters attending Batavia High School anymore, still show up to the games. Batavia High School has a welcoming, supportive community which is something I am going to miss after I graduate.
