  • I used to be a student at Sickles High School. I graduated not to long ago, May of 2007, I got my high school diploma thanks to my teacher and a big thanks to the recently canceled school program CBT(Career Basic Training). I was in CBT during the second semester of my junior year. The program was fun and helped me a lot in receiving the credits I needed to graduate. At the end of the year I was signed up to take CBT again in my senior year. But during the summer some people at Sickles decided for some nonsense excuse reason to cancel the program and they didn't bother to inform me or any of the other students that were signed up to take it. My hopes and my friends hopes were high on being in that program our last year of school and they were crushed on our first day back. Then to top it all off they just through me in a bunch of elective classes that weren't very important to me or to my education. They didn't even give me a chance to choose the elective classes I wanted to replace CBT. I can't tell you how pissed off I was at Sickles for screwing me like that and my friend was mad about it too. I failed all the electives that they through me in and I told each elective teacher that their classes didn't matter and meant nothing to me. I also skipped classes a couple of times and almost every day I would sneak in and use the soda and snack machine in their student restricted teachers launch. It sort of affected my GPA but I still got away with it. I still got my diploma. That serves them right for screwing me though. But I did always try to do my best to do good in all the classes that were important to my education.
