    Overall Experience: Pearland High School wasn't too good to me but maybe that's because I spent most of my time studying. The security guards are pointless, ID's and dress code all restricted students. There is no Sex Ed and I think it made a lot of the students severely ignorant to things that should be common knowledge and resulted in a lot of them making stupid decisions.

    Overall Experience: Know that I have seen new aspects on a poorer community high school, I know wish that Pearland High School wasn't so easy on students. Everything is handed to the students by the teachers, parents, and classmates. What is not realized is the outside world that will strike in a heartbeat and the effectivness of desperation for help as a young adult after highschool.

    Overall Experience: My art classes and one English class were the only parts of this school that made me want to wake up in the morning. Otherwise, I've watched kids get sent to ISS for a full day just for wearing a plain black shirt, leaving them to miss a full day of classes. I've taken six total art classes through high school, and I have learned more in those than in any of my academics. The school is good in general, but I cannot wait to get out of here and feel like I am getting a real education for once.
