    Health & Safety: The safety and health policies of our school could be provided by improving lunch and breakfast quality. Our school security could be improved by requiring all students to show their student id's before entering and leaving school.

    Extracurriculars: Most of the extracurricular activities are related to sports. We do have a dance team and a cheer-leading group but our school does not have any after school opportunities for people passionate about art or computer technology. We have a Black Falcons team that is related to hacking and we have DECA that is based on business principles. We used to have a HOSA but it was closed due to decreased student participation in the club. I wish our school had some after school related to art. My school also has orchestra, band, voices of hope for music lovers.

    Overall Experience: This school has provided with me options that was not available to me in my past schools. I was able to engage in several community service clubs and do great service to my community. For example, our school's National Honors Society organization held a service project every month and those service projects not only allowed me to give to my community but also express my inner talents such as visual arts. Another one of our community service clubs known as Hope Club went on food can drives to help military families. Our student council worked on raising money for the Pets For Tags association where rescue dogs were provided a shelter through the money we fund raised. The rescue dogs were mostly adopted by military soldiers suffering from PTSD.

    Teachers: All of my teachers have been really helpful and caring. Other teachers that I have encountered at my school through clubs and various other organizations were also truly engaging and dedicated to the Green Hope High School Community.
