Topic: Overall Experience
"Throughout my 4 years, I have really enjoyed myself. Because of the small size of the school, you grow very close to everyone. Not only the people in your grade, but also the people in the older and younger grades. The shop environments are great, and it's awesome seeing people be such good friends with each other, even after only knowing them for a relatively short time. The shops that are provided are great and all provide multiple oppertunties for the kids to obtain different degrees and licensure. The academic work is not hard, because the school is vocationally based. However, that does not mean that the teachers aren't great at what they do. I have met my favorite teachers I have ever had throughout my sophomore to senior years, and I have learned a lot through them, not only academically, but also socially. Also because the school is so small, the teachers get to know their students, and a lot of the time we are treated like friends, and it makes learning more relaxed, comfortable, and fun, especially for the kids who came to a vocational school because academic aren't their strongest aspect. The school administration has become a lot stricter since the new principal has come, but she has done a ton for the school, such as renovations, grants, expansion, oppertunties, and the bettering of the reputation. The best decision that I made was choosing the Voc. rather than choosing the High School."
"We learn what we need to know to get through the curriculum, nothing more nothing less. Many do not feel ready for the real world because they think our high school has not provided the necessary resources to put them on that path."
