Upon attending St. Pete High School, I can say with out a doubt it was a new experience for me and I loved it. The different types of classes there brought out different studies of knowledge. The teacher there are dedicated to their students and care for their success. One thing that is important to St.Pete High is tradition. Every year all the students participate in different traditions that's been alive for decades. These traditions will never die and is apart of the history of the school. Clubs are a big deal in this school because it helps you meet new people and make new friends. Student clubs is one of the reasons why I love St.Pete High because it brings people together.

There were experiences that made this school enjoyable, sporting events, becoming friends with teachers and fellow peers, but there was once a sense of tradition that was very valuable at one point in time, that rapidly declined in the short time I attended. The school itself is of beautiful, historic design, but outdated air conditioning, plumbing, and cleanliness. I would choose to attend there all over again if I had to because comparatively to what I've heard it's still light years better, safer, and more educational than the surrounding schools in my area.

My Sophomore year I had an excellent Chemistry teacher. She was the best! She made learning Chemistry fun and manageable to learn. She made sure we understood the information that she was teaching and would do well on the homework and tests. She went out of her way for her students and was always available to help students when they needed it. She was definitely one of the better teachers that I had in high school. The art teachers were also very good teacher and made their class fun and made you work for the grades that you earned. They are one of my better memories and St. Pete High
