    Student Culture & Diversity at Berkmar High School: At my school you don't see a lot of different people which can make you feel like you don't belong, or like if you have to be like them to fix in. Last year I was in a class without any friends, so i stayed to myself, but somehow one of the girls started to hate me. She would call me names and just always picked on me. I didn't do anything to her, but she hated me The crazy thing is that she would do all this in front of the teacher and never got in trouble. I hated that class. It was so bad that I asked the teacher if I can just do my work in another class. The students don't really like anyone different from them. They don't accept us. We need more diversity.

    Extracurriculars at Peachtree Ridge High School: Extracurriculars are great at The Ridge. It was a big part of my high school career and where I made my most memorable experiences. I fully believe that my level of participation in the variety of extracurriculars available at Ridge is a big reason why I got accepted into the university I did.

    Overall Experience at Peachtree Ridge High School: The organizations that I joined at this school taught me lifelong lessons. Not only did I make lifelong friends through the clubs I was a part of, but the sparked my love for volunteering and community service. Whether it was at school functions such as dances, or athletic events, I always found myself smiling and laughing and genuinely happy to be there.
