    Overall Experience: My school is pretty highly ranked and is one of the best schools in the state. This means the academics are very good but it also means there is a lot of pressure from teachers, parents, and other students to do well, which can sometimes be counterproductive. Also, grades that could be considered phenomenal at other schools in the state are merely average at my high school. Another issue is an emphasis on athletics but neglect of the fine arts.

    Overall Experience: I moved here in the middle of my sophomore year a couple years ago and I've adjusted very nicely. I have wonderful friends and my teachers still know me by name when I see them in the hallways. I'm glad we moved up here to Fishers and I wouldn't change it for anything. It's been a great learning and growing experience for me.

    Overall Experience: High school was high school, I don't think it can be great but I was defiantly blessed with the opportunities that my high school provided.

    Overall Experience: I really like how big my high school is because even through senior year, I'm still meeting new people. The best thing about my school is its size because there are a lot of clubs and course offerings that aren't offered at other schools; my favorites include the Academy of Finance, Project Lead the Way, and Principles of Bio-medical Science. I would definitely attend my high school again because of these programs that it offers as well as there are so many different things to try and I think it prepares you for college better than other high schools.

    Overall Experience: This school has taught me so many different things from my junior to senior year. I did marching band for 4 years so I was best friends with upperclassmen and that got me through most of the time. This is one of those schools where if you are not involved with a sport or club then you are kind of just forgotten about. This school has every type of person you can imagine. No one is really out on their on when it comes to finding a group to be apart of. The majority of teachers are okay, but you either get lucky with a good teacher or you are out of luck. Overall this high school has provided me with many opportunities that not many other schools offer and I am very thankful I got that experience.
