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 The school itself is of beautiful, historic design, but outdated air conditioning, plumbing, and cleanliness.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 school has been around for about 100 years and is the oldest in my county. Because of this, there are many more traditions at my school than any other, which I think is really cool. I have loved most of the teachers I have been assigned, and I've made so many friends. The one fault that I could find in my school, however, would be in the administrators/guidance counselors/office staff. They are incredibly rude and mean-spirited from the get go. I am very polite and have never been in trouble my whole life and still I am treated like trash and I don't understand why.

A majority of my good experiences from this school has been through sports. My best memory would be cheering on Friday nights for the football team. Watching people I know around school play a great game and then watching the school spirit in the stands is an describable experience. The great school spirit was one thing that would make me do it all over again at St. Petersburg High.
