    Overall Experience: My overall experience from this school so far is opening up to new friends each year especially in the band program area because I am forced to take action on going out of my comfort zone and be social for others. This was very unique as this brought a new view of getting out of my nature and experience what I am to become, a leader. I would always want to choose this specific school again because of that feeling from getting out of my shy self to that of a exhilarating person.

    Teachers: While spending my entire school life at Greenfield Central, I had experienced many different types of teachers ranging from teaching styles. The overall quality of a multiple teachers had led them to my opinion on that they made great examples to students and aided them in supporting their future career while being that role model. Their knowledge in a specific subject shows up when teaching because they could connect their meanings to examples in which made it simple to understand and comprehend while processing in our minds to retain the information. The interest within students from teachers shows to be questionable that few don't want to accept student opinions while their are some that value our opinions and take that to heart to feel more impacting towards their students. The communication skills has started to decrease when we started to integrate technology into our school system the past year because people are more focused on being distracted than listening to the teachers and such. The grading overall are fair for all because they help the students be on a fair side when it comes to curbing, just like they do in college for most professors. In all, I've found this school to be always my personal favorite when it comes to teachers because with the inspiration of becoming a music major, my band director had inspired myself to work hard and helped me through to achieve what I wanted to study in the future, and this too applies to other peers that had the same influence.

    Student Culture & Diversity: There isn't a lot of sexual or racial diversity in the school. The community is mostly white. Peer pressure is very heavy here. I remember being pressured to smoke marijuana my freshman year when I was only fourteen. I said no because my mother would have punished me severely and I was not interested in drugs. It is just an example of how young people are pressured into trying things they are too inexperienced for.

    Health & Safety: The school has had alcohol and drug use issues in the past from students. There are sometimes physical fights but there is never anything too bad. No weapons are really brought into the school and there isn't a prominent threat of gang or gang violence in the community or the school. The school is pretty safe for the most part.
