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.
There are various resources available for students. We have printers, class necessities, etc. for every student on campus. If any class item runs out, there is always a backup in the office. The counseling team is great as well since they provide information that will benefit us for college. In addition, there are not much options academic wise since it is a small school, but our A-G requirements are covered. Our school provides AP and Honors courses that help us prepare for the rigorous courses in college and to expose us to college material. Moreover, the school should change the lunch options; packaged food that often becomes repetitive is not appetizing. The school wastes a lot of cardboard since we don't have plastic trays. That should be changed in order for our schoool to be environmental friendly. We should also be provided with more options for classes such as physics and computer science.
