My experience was pretty good in Graham High School, I met a lot of new people and got to be in a lot of clubs. I liked that right now as a senior they have a college advisor at school all day everyday so she helps me a lot with college. The only thing I really didn't like is that the food wasn't good and there wasn't a lot of food options. I liked most of the teachers because they would always be there before or after school for help with any work. My favorite part about high school was being on the girls soccer team because it felt good having a team to support you. It was more than just a team, we bonded so much that we all felt like family.

I've had a great experience at Graham High. The teachers care about ones well being and ones success. Although the staff are amazing, I feel like the rigor is not where it should be. Graham is full of potential and knowledgeable kids, we just need the right push. The greatest teachers who pushed me, drove me, and guided me were Walter Mastin, Ashleigh Denny, Torrence Carle, and Tony Whitsell.

Don't get me wrong it's a great school I loved my experience there and I learned a lot too. Every school have there food and bad. But my experience was great and challenging for as being yourself at my school there is people that are bad influences and me personally I stayed away from bad influence and I always watched who my friends were. Because friends and all plays a big part in your school life.Overall my school is one of a kind lol all the administrators and guidance were very great helpful people throughout my high school life.
