    Extracurriculars: The extracurriculars are what keep me at Mountain View Academy. The academics are ehh and the teachers suck, but the extracurriculars are fun.

    Extracurriculars: I actually really love all the activities that happen at my school. However, I wish there could be more. There is a lack of staff members that can perform the jobs and supply the time needed for more extracurricular activities.

    Overall Experience: I had a good first two years, and then when I began to understand and to gain more friends, the pressures of high school seemed to weigh down on my shoulders. Many people started coming to me for deep and personal information, and I would give my opinions about certain things, only to find out what I said hurt someone else. Another thing that I learned was that I'm 100% ready to move on with my life. I contemplated taking the GED so I didn't have to go back to the immature high school filled with drama. I was ready to grow up again, and I still have those feelings, and I hope and pray that they don't lead to mental diseases, because that is what I fear. If I could do it all over, I would do some things differently, and possibly, one of those things would be choose a different school.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers are good and honest people, but they are horrible at teaching. Many of them move at a snail's pace for me, but they are at regular speed for the lower-than-average students. They try to compensate too much for the struggling student, I would say. Moreover, there are many children in honors and AP classes that aren't fit for the fast-paced life that comes with extra courses. I strongly believe that most of the students in my grade will not excel in their post-high school lives. They aren't pushed to their limits, and they haven't had a real taste for what the work load will look like in real life. Also, many of the teachers are well-informed and filled with knowledge, but again, they can't teach. Either the words are too big to understand, or the teaching methods are outdated, or the classwork is sloppy.

    Health & Safety: I had very few bullying problems and the people that bullied me are one of my closest friends. Things change as you spend more time in the school. Our school is in the middle of the city, during my time at MVA I felt pretty secure.
