Though I only spent two years at Buchholz High School, I felt that it gave me eye opening experiences and prepared me for college. The advisors were really kind, resourceful and helpful, the teachers had efficient teaching methods, and overall the environment was very competitive yet supportive. These factors greatly influenced my academic success in college and my desires to further pursue in education. I felt significantly more prepared for college and secure about my future compared to when I was at my previous high school. Now I am attending an honors college and planning to get a PhD.
