    Overall Experience: To me it was the best high school I've seen so far. I heard a lot of experiences from my friends about their high schools and I was lucky to attend an "A" school at marjory Stoneman Douglas.

    Overall Experience: There are so many teachers that I had and loved. I was able to develop a love of learning through them and still use many of their lessons in my everyday life. My favorite experience would have to be going as a school for the state Spanish competition and competing in Orlando, i had the opportunity to grow and bond with the students at my school in a way that in years past I was never able to before.

    Overall Experience: If I had a choice to pick any school I want to go to Marjory Stoneman Douglas would not be my first choice. There are way to many rules and restriction that come along with going to this school that we high schoolers don't even feel like growing adults more like elementary kids. This school has barely any times we get to just be ourselves and feel free (pep rally's, lunch, homecoming/prom) because even during those times there are strict rules that has to be followed if not consequences are taken into action immediately.
