Hemingway high school is one of the lowest incomed schools in the U.S.! Everything we have is limited; courses, classroom materials, dedicated teachers, sports, & exposure. Although we don't have everything, we have pride we try & make do with what we do have. I love my school, although I do honestly feel I'm not being challenged. I feel as if I'm not being prepared for the next level. I don't feel like I'm learning, I just feel like I remember to past tests. Then all the information leaves me.

The clubs at my school are somewhat interesting. We work together to get the funds we need for our students. For example, the Beta Club sold World's Finest Chocolate to get money to go to trips.

I wouldn't choose to attend this school again because the new staff and administration is ridiculous!
