My favorite experience is on a day of the first pep rally of the year. Parents and students alike were cheering will all their might for our football team.Surrounding our team with support and love, we were able to beat our rivals because of our school spirit. It was the most fun I have ever had at this school, and I became truly proud to be a Huntsville Panther that day.

I have been in my school show choir for four years and loved it! This is such an amazing program to be a part of and it has helped me make friends and become more confident. I have been in my schools student council for the past two years and they has showed me the way the school system runs and how to be a leader. My school has a rival football game every year with a pep rally and we all go to the game and wear white to support our team! I would attend this school again because it is the best high school in the city that I am in. We have gone through many ups and downs but in the end all of the students me included learn a lot and have a lot offered to us that we couldn't get anywhere else.
