I really like my school because it's very diverse. We have students from all backgrounds and different walks of life that enrich our student community and make learning more fun and interesting.

It needs more funding. The teachers have the potential to make the programs extraordinary, but they need more funding (we can blame Scott Walker for that).

In this school, I was able to create strong bonds with people. The community there is supportive of each other and lifts each other up when someone feels down. When you walk down the hallway, you see familiar friendly faces that greet you in the mornings or who catch up to you when they see you pass by without a "hello". When you're struggling in a class, all you have to do is yell for help and you receive the help you need.
