Niche has been such a great experience. I love the website and how easy it is to access the website. There are so many different websites around the world, but there aren't as many that will go this fast. If I feel that a website doesn't benefit me in a way, I won't continue using it. Niche is a great place to explore different scholarships that continue to help students get the scholarships they need for college. I would greatly recommend Niche to any person that I know. This website really does rock and I will definitely be using it again sometime soon!

During my Highschool experience, I throughly enjoyed how enthusiatic and inspirational the staff can be at times. I enjoyed making new friends and meeting people that are from other cultures and states. The variety of cultures provide for a great learning experience in itself. Somthings that i didnt enjoy were the school food and the crowding... My highschool is overpopulated with students. The lunch at school isnt very appetising. The school tells us that what they feed us is healthy, yet the food tastes disgusting, which makes the students prefer not to even eat the lunch. How is skipping lunch any healthier than eating a little bit of "unhealthy" foods? I believe that the school doesnt get enough money for funding because the school does run out of food during lunch on occasion as well. I just wonder when school will be complete for students. I wouldnt want my childeren to skip eating their lunch because they ran out of food at school or because the healthy food is so unappetising.

My experience in the Clark County school district has been pretty poor. For one, the entire staff (including teachers, counselors, an administrators) give off an attitude of just not caring about the wellbeing of the students. A majority of teachers that I've had aren't supportive or encouraging in any way. As for the students, they are distracting and undisciplined, and I feel that measures should be taken in my district to prevent the distraction of the students who care. However, even out of all these dark clouds, there are a few rays of sunshine. There of course the occasional teacher who genuinely cares about the futures of their students, and the occasional counselor who helps their students through hard times. Clark Country school district has its obvious cons, but it also has a bright side to it.
