My experience at Avenal High School was pretty good to average. We didn’t have much diversity but it’s what you did and were involved in that made it fun. Just spending time with my friends and being part of FFA was a key highlight of my high school years. I ended up working at my school cafeteria which I ended up really loving because of my fellow employees , boss, and the joy I got out of working. That helped me out quite a bit financially even if I wasn’t getting payed a lot. I was also part of a program connected to Wonder Pistachios and Almonds which led me to be a dual enrolled high school student taking college classes all my 4 years and summers as well. This program will allow me to receive my AST in Plant Science in May of 2020. Over all, how I spent my time in different programs, clubs, and sports is what made my high school life great and worthwhile.
Being in Avenal High School was one of the best experiences in my life. I was able to meet a lot of friendly staff that care for you, along with many opportunities that the School provides. I was able to play sports and join clubs as I felt welcomed every day. The School provided all the resources we needed, whether it be wifi at home, laptop or books. The programs Avenal High School has been useful to help you with college and gives you the experience as if it were to be both a High School and College as best for the students. Aside from the classes, the School makes sure you are ready for college by taking you on college visits and having special speakers from all around the world to open your eyes.
Avenal High School is a good and average school. It has many of the things other high schools have. The school has a nice and beautiful campus, and they even rebuild some things. My experience at the school was also average. The school teacher are helpful, and stay after school to help students. The clubs and activities we have at the school are also nice.
