  • AS A STUDENT FROM CARNAHAN HIGH SCHOOL,
    ASSUMING TO ATTEND UNIVERSITY CITY HIGH
    SCHOOL SO FAR I THINK THAT THIS SCHOOL CURRENTLY IN THE 63130 AREA IN U-CITY
    I SEE THAT THIS SCHOOL IS WELL TOGETHER.
    FROM THE KIDS TO THE TEACHERS AND THE PARENTS I SEE MY SELF BEING IN ANOTHER BETTER PLACE WHERE I CAN SEE MYSELF BEING IN ANOTHER PLACE I CALL HOME. I HOPE TO ASSIMILATE LOTS OF THINGS AND GAIN MORE KNOWLEDGE TO MAKE IT TO A COLLEGE POINT-TO FOLLOW MY GOALS. AS A STUDENT COMING IN I HOPE TO SEE THE BEST WHEN I ENTER UNIVERSITY CITY HIGH SCHOOL. I'VE HEARD WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT THE SCHOOL,AND I AM READY TO SEE WHAT GOES ON THROUGH THE SCHOOL. UNIVERSITY CITY HIGH HELPS GAIN MORE KNOWLEDGE FOR STUDENT NO MATTER WHAT THEY LOOK-THINK OR SOUND LIKE.IT IS HELPFUL FOR ANYONE.
