Mission statement

Our school is a comfortable environment where kids have freedom, and an extreme amount of choices for everything. It is a college-like society where everyone has an important role. Our students enjoy a diverse lesson plan, that is self paced and interactive, and when they need it, there is individual help, offered at any minute. Our school is a modern environment that makes school enjoyable for all kids, and teachers.

Technology

Is technology an advantage or a disadvantage? Well a lot of people have their own opinions about this topic but we came to our ELA teacher to ask how she felt. "There are many ways to look at it, it helps many students and some flourish from technology but others fall behind and don't do very well when technology is added to the situation. They lack caring about their schoolwork, because there are many distractions that come with the technology. Games, and social media, make the student care more about sending that tweet then starting the project that was assigned," she says. "Though there are those who give technology a bad reputation, there are some kids who work their best and bring the most to the table and are able to do more and extend their knowledge without running into limits. Even though there are many challenges to technology, it's worth the sacrifice because in the end, it helps more than it hurts.

A Comfortable Enviornment

The seats we have are absolutely awful. They are extremely uncomfortable and for those with long hair, it's an extra challenge you have to face. With uncomfortable furniture and school equipment, you aren't able to due your work to it's full potential. Some students aren't able to focus due to the fact that they aren't able to get there energy out. If we were to have medicine ball chairs, kids would be able to exercise and get their energy out, while doing their work. In the classrooms, there should be a place for you to put your stuff, nothing super fancy and expensive but a simple place lie a closet. Lastly, we should have individual spaces for everyone where they can spend their class periods, learning online, and interactively.

Food

Our school has food that's okay, but there could be a ton of improvements that we could make. First of all, it should look more appealing. Right now the food has almost a grayish tint to it. If we were to make it look more fresh and healthy, kids would not only get the food, but eat it and enjoy it. They would get more nutrients, and would in the end become more healthy.
