the first semester of my freshman year was good. i made new friends, but those friends we're not nice and friendly from this society from this school. the second semester was horrible! the fake friends i had spread untrue rumors about me. my teachers and my counseler did not help at all, they gave me advice to "ignore them" and that's all. i also got in a serious situation that was terrifying for me and my parents came to talk to the principal about transfering me to another school and they refused say that it wasn't a "serious issue" since then ive been terrified to walk in this school. my sophomore year my social worker asked me if i had any problems this year and i refused to tell her because i already know that they won't be able to help me out. i always ended up saying "im fine" or "no i don't need any help" and i just went on with my day all scared and alone.
I received a lot of stress my freshman year with lots of homework. The load was unbearable and I honestly feel like there is not enough free time for students. Me and my peers were really disengaged and felt like learning was boring, except for a few exceptions of people. I like the cafeteria and the clubs, people are friendly and I like the community but there are too many things that need to be worked on to make everyone love this school and learning.
My whole family and I attended this school and had an overall great experience. Students are respected, treated fairly, and supported while still being challenged and held accountable. It is a top choice for my own children when they reach that age. While I was admittedly not the most diligent student in H.S., I went on to excel in college and graduate school though completion of my doctorate. The foundation from Community H.S. was that strong even for a student not applying full effort.
Both of my kids graduated from this school. While I am not a fan of the administration the teachers are wonderful and really care about the kids. Both of my kids have gone on to college and are graduating soon. They were both in the AP courses which really helped them prepare for a higher education. There are so many great teachers at this school and a lot of variety in extra curricular activities. There is something for everyone. I am so thankful my kids were able too attend such a great school
