  • Contrary to popular belief, the change in Largo from 2006 to now is unbelievable. Something that you can't truly conceive unless you've actually witnessed it happening before your eyes, witnessed the administration changing for the better, witnessed student leadership rising from the ashes, witnessed fewer fights, witnessed the positive press that has been in the papers over that last year. Largo made me who I am and I have to say that even if I could chose to go back to eighth grade and rethink my choices, I would choose Largo all over again. That means something, and should prove that Largo is more than the bad press or the bad things. It is the good things.
