Throughout my high school career at CHS, I have evolved into a successful jag! I am a student-athlete at Capital High. The atmosphere at Capital is very unique, from Spanish to Native to English speaking groups us heard amongst its hallways. Teachers are very nice and the patriotism towards the school is recognized everywhere. Being a Jaguar will always be one of my proudest achievements because this school has given me good memories to look back on. Jaguar Pride is based on how you vision your education beyond the classrooms, teachers, and grades. To focus on a brighter future is a Jaguarś goal!

My experience at Capital High School was extremely exciting. The courses in Capital High School provide each student with the material needed for a brighter future. My experience is exciting because I had an opportunity to be part of the medical pathway courses. The medical classes are one of the main reason why I love Capital High. I enjoy taking the medical pathway because I can further my knowledge on the health care career; also I have a head start of knowing the basics in medical. If I could change something from Capital High School it will be our disorganized lunch hours. Personally, I believe that our lunches should be separated by our grades, for instance, freshmen and sophomores together and juniors and seniors together in different lunch hours. This will beneficial because students do not have to wait thirty minutes to get lunch; the lunch lines will be faster and the cafeteria would not be extremely crowded. Other than that, everything in Capital High School is good.
Capital High School is a tight knit community, offering a wide variety of classes to its wide variety of students. One can feel the positive energy radiating from the devoted staff and thriving students upon entering the building and seeing all the smiling faces around them. I would love to see this community open more doors for those who wish to participate and be more involved in the school's extra curricular activities.
