After spending 4 years at this Alliance school (Now called Alliance Ted K. Tajima High school), I can say with 100% confidence that school can prepare any student for huge success so long as the student demonstrates effort. The staff here is all completely committed to helping their students get to a 4-year college. This year in fact, we have had the most acceptances we have ever had into, not only 4-year colleges, but prestigious 4-year colleges, such as UCLA, Occidental, Vanderbilt, Claremont McKenna, Etc. This upward trend has been seen since the start of this small school and demonstrates that they are doing all the right things. The teachers and counselors urge the importance of college beginning from freshman year and push the students to reach their maximum potential. Not only that, but every year, the school creates more sports and club programs. This small school has done so much and has the potential for far more.

As a student at College Ready Academy #16, or now known as Ted K Tajima my experience at this school has so far been amazing. I began in my sophomore year, with the lack of motivation and bad behavior towards school. I was immediately spoken to by my counselor in hope of taking courses that bring up grade. There was academical help, and social as well! The environment is welcoming and thankfully clean too, something not many schools have.
I am a student leader at Alliance College-Ready Academy High School #16, most recently renamed Alliance Ted K. Tajima. As a high school sophomore, Tajima has granted me numerous opportunities. The school has prepared me for college. Not only do they inform me about available opportunities outside of school, but they aid me in researching and pursuing things that I am interested in. The school strongly values students traditions by hosting cultural celebrations and activities. They incorporate family by enabling a welcoming environment. Personally, although there are some disadvantages to having a small school, like not having enough space for sports, administration strives to find enrichment and leadership development programs for students. For instance, I am a current member of my schools swim team. Overall, my experience at Tajima High has been splendid because I am allowed to express myself as an artistic student and be a scholar-athlete at the same time.
