The experience in Banning High School was fun! Although we are a small school in a small community, we had the experience that other bigger and richer high schools have. Also the staff there is really invested and committed to teaching their students and providing the best for all students. I am also surrounded by many bright and intelligent people although we are called the "Ghetto" school because we are small and poor, other schools seem to underestimate us. Banning High is a real diamond in the rough and overall the school gave me an amazing experience of highschool life.

Now that I am at the end of my four years of high school I can say that my experience at Banning High School was very good for several reasons. One of the reasons why I enjoyed attending Banning High School is because of the people that attend the school are some of the most genuine nicest people that I have ever met which made my experience even better. Another reason why I enjoyed attending Banning High School is because the teachers and counselors helped me through every struggle that I ever encountered. Lastly, another reason I enjoyed attending Banning High School is because of the school spirit that made my experience fun.
My experience throughout banning high school has been up and down. The teachers at Banning High School are very nice and helpful. They will always take up some of there time to help you got with tutoring or any other type of help. The counselors are very helpful in helping you with your career path. As having good things there are also bad things such as class wise. I feel they should have more than one foreign language. The should organize classes a bit more because some student couldn't do AP Bio, and AP Physics in one school year because they made all science classes the first period. Overall BHs is a good school and there is school spirit!!
