Polaris High School Reviews
I fooled around too much during my 8th grade year and I wasn't able to pass to freshmen year in high school. I got accepted into this program called Prep Academy, which is sadly no longer available. I admit it, I hated Polaris High School to a cellular level. I wanted to leave Polaris so badly and that was before i got used to it.
Polaris is an amazing school with wonderful teachers and staff. What I love most about this school is that it's so small. I'm a senior now and my favorite year was my freshmen year at Polaris. Sadly my mom only judged by what she saw and she saw "gang colors" and "gang members," so she made me leave and I miss it so much. I could have done more to convince my mom that I was happy there. For the first time in my life, I was actually happy to go to school. How many students can actually say that they love going to school? Not many.
When I went to Polaris, I couldn't wait to get to school, to see my teachers and my friends. I joined the cross country team and I had an amazing time. This school really has a lot to offer and I would recommend it to anyone.
I dropped out of high School the begining of my Junior year. I decided to go back to school and started to attend Polaris High school. I was able to make up all the classes I missed and received all A's. I recommend this school to any struggling student. This school gave me the tools Ineeded to Graduate.
Thank You Polaris.
...My son was transfered to Polaris from his home high school because of trouble he had got into. He attended the school for one semester and received incompletes in all classes. He hated going there, the teachers had no control over the students and what they said or done. He had to worry about being jumped by students through out the school day. He couldn't learn with other students constantly talking about drugs and gang violence in the class room. My son isn't an angel otherwise he wouldn't have been transfered to Polaris but he also deserves to get a education if he wants one and this school didn't allow for it to happen.
