International School Student going to american public school
Hello, i'm an international student and i live outside of US.
I lived in NJ when i was in middle school but then i moved out of the country and started high school in an international school. I'm moving back to US, but not back to jersey but to north california (possibly near sacramento).
Are public high schools in US have good standards?
the school that i'm planning to go to has about 2000 kids in HS, compared to 300 in my international private HS.
It doesnt have to be in cali, but in american public schools, are there lots of opportunities for extracurriculars, and APs, etc?
Do you get to know your counselor well?
(i'm actually considering prep schools like andover, choate etc because i'm somewhat intimidated by american public highs..)
Thanks so much!
