Our school is located in the center of Khabarovsk between crossing Amurskiy bulvar and Sheronov street. Ahead the school is the big flowerbed. It is a tradition in our school to plant their new trees and flowers. They plant it as the memory of their school years. Our school is a gumnasium. It offers a general course of academic and non-academic subjects, and gives secondary education. Besides, it offers a number of courses in a variety of fields: the humanities, mathematics, natural sciences. My school used to be a specialized school, offering a course of English. It had been known for its academic exellence. Some years ago it was reoganized in a gymnasium but, fotunately, the changes haven’t led to lower teaching standarts. Moreover, better trained teachers of Social Sciences, Russian and Literature have been employed. In my opinion, the quality of teaching at our school is much better now than it used to be. Every first of September in our school come new boys and girls to study. All them feel shy but we always encourage them. The ten years ago when I was seven years old I came to it too. It was a rainy day. All was so unusual for me. I have never seen so much children in one place. It was a great noise there. What was then, I cannot remember. So, school days begin and soon I felt myself at school like at home. My school is very well equipped. There are sporting facilities including a gym and a sports ground with football field and track-and-field aparatuses. Our school has five entrances. There are the main entrance that we use every day and four emergency exits. I like my class, too. I always feel at home there. Everybody is friendly and easy to get along with. I’m on good terms with most of my classmates, and we often spend our free time together. I hope my school education will form a basis for my future occupation. Anyway, I am sure I’ll always remember my school years and the friendships I have made at school.
