    Teachers: In my years at Mainland Regional High School, the level of education and dedication from my teachers, past and present, is exceptional. I feel that I gain a valuable learning experience from each class. My grades are typically put into the system after the teacher has seen that I have done my work, and I get notifications from the grading company's app. It is especially easy to set up a session with all of my teachers, whether it be during lunch, before or after school. My teachers are also well versed in their fields of education. I do have an issue with some of my teachers' teaching practices, such as being disorganized or not having a set curriculum to reach a goal in a reasonable amount of time; however, most of the teachers I have the pleasure of knowing have shaped who I am as a student, and who I would like to be as a professional. I love my school, I love my classes, and I love the spirit and effort that Mainland's teachers put forth to encourage their students.

    Overall Experience: This school has been great with freedom. They always let us have out our phones and they let us eat where ever we like in the building for lunch. They treat us like adults, which is nice.

    Health & Safety: The health programs are ok, I haven't been to the nurses often but from what I can tell they do an alright job. The safety is good at Mainland as well, sometimes I feel they overdo it a little bit, there's camera's everywhere and I see police around pretty often.
