    Extracurriculars: It seems like they have a club or activity for everyone. The only issue I have had is the communication as to the different clubs and where to go.

    Overall Experience: I found a voice and a future to look forward too. I never knew I would be great at ceramic or even enjoy it as much as I have these past four years. I took two years of Sports medicine and managed the softball team which has led me to pursuing a career in Athletic Training.

    Teachers: Hamilton Southeast High School pushes and challenges it's students to be better and look towards our futures. I have ADD with high anxiety that was not discovered until I was in 7th grade. This school district has given me the tools and help to be where I am today! I didn't move into this district until 5th grade and I was lost. Now I have a job at Chick-fil-a and was promoted to trainer do to the confidence the school has given me to believe anything is possible with hard work.

    Overall Experience: Athletic parents tend to be a bit crazy and competitive when it comes to their kids.

    Teachers: There are incredibly helpful teachers that go above and beyond but a handful are either really scatterbrained or don't act like they care.
