A High School Beyond Compare

I went to Har-Ber High School for three years and even with the struggles and hard times, I had the best three-year learning experience of my life. Har-Ber taught me how to stay organized, how to study thoughtfully, and how to be a better person. This school has provided a place for me to not only study and learn but to feel safe and have fun while doing so. Although the school itself is amazing as is, the teachers are always there to make it ten times better. They are always anxious to teach more and the students anxious to learn more. Although the administration has made changes over the time I have been here, making it less fun to be at school. For example, the "Senior Camp-Out" was taken away in my junior year. This was something I was excited about and something that we seniors got to do together and alone. Besides this minor set-back, though, our school's facilities make it worthwhile and make coming to school so much more interesting. For example, our Performing Arts Center (PAC) is one of the very many facilities that has made Har-Ber unique. Also, our sports facilities are incredibly nice and clean. They give athletes a safe and enjoyable environment to go to every day to get away from the studies and perform in their own kind of way. One thing that I would absolutely love about this school is that it is more inclusive. Including more of a diverse community. Welcoming any and all people who want to come to learn and better their education. With all of this, Har-Ber High School has given me a place to learn freely, practice daily, and independently ready myself for whatever comes next.

My High School Experience

Overall, I have had an amazing high school experience. I have built unforgettable friendships, taken great classes, had incredible teachers, and learned extremely important lessons. I wouldn't change a thing. Har-Ber High School has provided an environment for student growth in academics, extracurricular activities, and useful life-skills. I have learned how to establish goals and persevere all the way to success. Har-Ber High is a spirited community of caring students and teachers whom I present with the utmost respect. The school itself is beautiful. The teachers are amazing. The classes are filled with students eager to learn, and teachers eager to teach. Administration however, has made some changes that have resulted in making Har-Ber slightly less fun (from a student's perspective) this year. As a senior, for example, I have looked forward to the senior camp out since sophomore year. It is a fun way to say goodbye to your fellow classmates as you go separate ways in the following years. This year is the first in several, that the seniors have been denied the permission to have this annual camp out. I do understand why this decision was made, but it is still disappointing to me and my fellow seniors. While our sports team did have a bit of a rough year, it was still so much fun to cheer them on from the stands. I have loved every second of my time here at Har-Ber, and I look forward to what the future holds for me and my classmates.
