    Overall Experience: At Senior High, opportunities can be found around any corner. From Clay Club to Student Council, anyone can find a group of people who enjoy similar things as them. The students at Senior are very diverse. One of the main things I have learned there is to accept other people because you don't know their whole story. The kid sitting behind you in Spanish could have trouble at home or that girl giving a speech in English class may not have access to a nutritious meal every day. Although some may say that Senior does not harbor the best learning environment, if you apply yourself and do the work put in front of you, the teachers, staff, and fellow students will make your four years at Senior some of the best of your life.
