    Overall Experience: High school was an okay experience for me. It mostly taught me things that will help me become a better person and reach my goals later on in life but the students at my school are just genuinely nice and kind people. They are always worried about each other. All the students due what they can to make my school a better and safer place

    Teachers: The teachers at my school are great leaders. They are very concerned on all of their students performance and they will do everything they can to help a student pass the class. Almost all the teachers are willing to help students with their work even if they are not in any of the classes they teach, they just want to do whatever they can to help students pass and graduate.
