Calipatria HIghschool is a really unique school. This highschool is a Gold Ribbon school. The campus is very nice for it being such a small school. We have around ninety kids in our senior class, so you can get an idea how many students we would have in campus. Everyone in Calipatria HIghschool is really friendly. Mostly all kids know each other since we are such a small school. Our school may not be the greatest in sports but we have heart. The teachers would stop the lesson if one student does not fully understand a lesson. It gives the students that “one on one” opportunity with the teachers. Calipatria has a variety of classes going from Agriculture mechanisms to Food Prep to a drone flying class!

Calipatria High School is a small school. Everyone knows everyone. It is a very good school, but there are some things that are not very fair. For instance, our cadet program is a good program but those in the program can pretty much do and wear whatever they want. Let's say a girl wears leggings to school they are not see through but she will get dress code, yet if it were a cadet and her leggings were seen through she would not get told anything. There is favoritism and it's not out of control but it is there and all the students know it.
My experience at this high school is great! While attending the high school, I got to know many of the students around me. The school is fairly small so everyone knows everyone for the most part. That also was a great thing because bullying was not really an option. The one thing the school could improve on is adding more AP classes or more electives.
