Attending Avenal High School has been an amazing experience. It is a school where one feel extremely safe and also where one learns new thins every day. I have been attending Avenal High School since my freshmen year and I can honestly say that it has contributed to my growth as a person. I am proud to say I attend Avenal High School because even though it is located in a small town and it is a very small campus, it is filled with amazing people and very intelligent teachers and students. One of my best experiences in life.

This is a great school!. In this school, we have many opportunities because we are considered low-income students. We have access to free tests for the state of California. Something I would like to change is the restrooms. I thin they are not adequate for a school environment. Another thing I would like to change is the school food because they give us food that contains too much oil on it.
This school needs some improvements, such as academic and administration, but overall it has been a pleasant experience these 4 years.
