    Extracurriculars: I feel as if the all the sports teams and other extracurriculars like band and theatre are really all in their own groups. None of them mix and match well. The support from one another is not really there and they all stay to themselves. Just not a lot of great support from each extracurricular activity to the next.

    Overall Experience: The reason I went to Taylorsville High School was because I grew up playing sports in Taylorsville. All the buddies I grew up with played sports and were going to Taylorsville High School. That was my only group of friends I had because we all met through playing sports. So ever since we were eight years old we wanted to play for the Taylorsville baseball team and win a championship. So I went to Taylorsville because my teammates/friends were. If I didn't play sports, I would have chosen differently. I think Taylorsville is unique in it's own way by just bonding people through sports. We all played on the same team growing up as well as teams before us did. It's starting to get different with all the boundary changes though, but that's why I feel like Taylorsville is unique. Little league sports turns into some life long friends.

    Teachers: The only thing I really noticed in high school is if you're going to class and getting your work done, the teachers will allow to work with you if you missed a day or an assignment is late. Which I thought was fair. If you go to class and get your work done, you should be able to have some lenience with teachers to help you with late work. That was my case. Other students that never went to class and finished their work had troubles communicating with teachers about that. Some students just never understood that you have to go to class or you won't pass. The overall qualities of the teachers was descent. I had a few bad teachers that just couldn't control the environment. Most teachers knew how to handle the situation, and I learned better in those specific classes. Teaching styles was okay, not to much one on one learning. If they know a student is struggling, I would say for those teachers to ask the student if they would like to stay before/after school for 30 minutes and try and work with that student. Most of the time, some students don't like asking for the extra help, so if a teacher notices a struggling student, they should pursue that student to come in for one on one tutoring. Communication was okay as well. I feel like Canvas alerts would be better for students. Since Canvas is a main assignment source now it would be better to know that when you get an alert, you know that an assignment or a quiz is due/coming up. Alerts as being a text message or email. Grading wise, some of my teachers wouldn't update grades on gradebook until a week or so before midterms or end of semester. Which gets frustrating, especially if you're behind a day or two and you complete the work you missed and it's not in the gradebook. So you're not sure if they graded it or have even looked at it.

    Extracurriculars: My favorite extracurricular activities were Drama Club and participating in the Theatre productions. Those were always the best and were super fun. It was great being able to get to know different people because there were some people who were in Drama Club that weren't in the plays or musicals and vice versa.

    Overall Experience: I loved most of my experiences. The Theatre and Choir teachers really wanted me to succeed and I really appreciated there enthusiasm with all of the students and when they taught. If I could go back, I'd changed the teachers for most of my other classes but not the Theatre and Choir teachers.
