    "My favorite experience in this school was the trips i attended in the seventh grade. Also the field days we had in the eighth grade. The trips I went to in the seventh grade was when we went to a technology museum in Manhattan where we went for a computer class we had in seventh grade. We also went to a toy/candy store where we just relaxed and had fun because it was towards the end of the year. I liked the field trips we had in eighth grade because it included many bouncy houses and fun activities which held in our very own school. What makes this school unique was that it was very culturally diverse and all the events that were held were equally distributed among of the students. I wouldn't choose this school if i could do it all over because my experience in this school was very uninteresting and I felt i could have down better if the teachers cared about the students equally and their teaching methods would be unique so it could help support us academically."

    "The teachers in America School of Heroes (MS 137) I had and met weren't that exceptional in teaching. Some of the teachers had the same teaching style which is auditory type. They teach us the things we needed to learn and then they show a video or image to show us the things that they taught and then to make sure we actually learned the teachers would make us take notes. then two weeks later we would have a test on the things they taught. This was repetitive in my years in that middle school. But some of the teachers i met had unique teaching style which made me intrigued and actually made me participate in that class. For example, in eighth grade my English teacher made my class to do a Socratic seminar. this was a class discussion where there are two circles and then the inner circle has bring up the discussion and actively participate in it while the outer circle has to grade each individual in the who were in the inner circle. Usually the discussion is about a book we recently read. This teaching style which i thought was genius because it made me remember the events and the author purpose about writing the book. The consistency in grading of these teachers were consistent. So i would rate the teachers in my school "Okay.""

    "The teachers help to push students to do the best of their ability. They want to see students succeed and some of them provide extra help with work that they need help with. The teachers styles are very different. Some of the teachers focus on students weaknesses in areas that they struggle in to make improvements. Other teachers give students advanced work in order to challenge them and test their capability. Teachers would try to communicate with students in order to help them become successful learners by working individually with some who needs the help. Teachers would use an online grading system to keep track of each and every student and the progress that they make."
