    Overall Experience: The reason why I chose the rating as "It's okay" because it's not the best and it's not the worst either. We have numerous of children who act like hooligans, and think it's all fine & dandy interrupting other people's learning process. For example, during assemblies, people are very rude. I've witnessed the crowd laugh at people who was on the stage. I've heard people judge every single person that they saw and so much more. To talk about school spirit? It SUCKS. 0%. The principal tries to keep everyone together but he needs 100% cooperation from the students and he can't get that. It's like we're a family, but we're not.

    Teachers: In my opinion, every teacher has a different personality. Sometimes I feel like students are being somewhat cheated out of a true education because we have those kind of teachers who are lazy and just wants to make sure they promote students to the next grade level when they're not truly ready. I can't blame the teachers as much either, I also blame the students for not taking their education seriously. The teacher's job is to teach and meet certain criteria, it's the students job to come to school, maintain a good attitude, and learn.

    Overall Experience: My experience at Sidney Lanier High School these past two years have been great. I am on the basketball team, and I am also apart of many different clubs there such as National Honor Society, The Medical Club, and The Fellowship of Christian Students. If I were given the opportunity to attend this school again, I would. I feel like it is worth attending, its about how you see your school and how you would portray it.
