    Overall Experience: Well for me, high school wasn't the best time for me, cause I didn't make enough friends. Also high school tend to be boring for me, because each day is repeative everyday, same old same. But some days were fun with class activity, but that rarely happens. And I'm ready for college, and I will not go over high school, but if I have too, I would try to make more friends.

    Teachers: Most teacher's are very friendly and care about their students, and they tend to help struggling student's to get their grades up to be able to pass the class and graduate. It the teachers job to have the knowledge, and each teacher has their own cool ways of teaching us.

    Teachers: Most of the general classes are tough, It is really hard to get one on one time with the teachers unless you go out of your way
