    Overall Experience: 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.
