Was part of the music department for my four years there and there were many amazing experiences including touring and performing at disneyland. Special shout out to the college/career center for being especially flexible with seniors who need help with college stuff.

One downside was that during my years there, there was a lot of vandalism and there were always police officers on campus which was intimidating but I got used to it.

Certain teachers here have changed my life in the most positive way and have influenced me immensely. However, there are also teacher who don’t seem interested in what they are doing which reflects off of students who already might not like the subject.

I've gone to Capuchino for 4 years, and have been involved with numerous sports and clubs. Faculty is very easy to talk to and love to take part in any school events. They are very involved in their students education. This school incorporates everyone no matter their race or financial status. Being an IB school, I feel I am being prepared for college classes and find my classmates to be very supportive throughout the years. Through sports, I have been able to communicate with more students from different grades, and found comfort knowing that each class bonds with one another, and doesn't discriminate against each other.
I really enjoyed my time at Capuchino High School. The campus is very beautiful, the teachers and staff were mostly all very friendly and helpful especially during senior year. I was active in Theater, Interact club, and French club out of the many clubs and extracurricular they had. The school improved, they let everyone wear red and blue after banning it for so long and they no longer charge students for any sports games or theater shows anymore. The reason why I rated it four out of five was because they need to improve where they spend their money or give their funds to. Most of it goes to maintenance but, they give the sports teams more money than theater and arts. Education wise, I think that IB isn't the best because it depends on too many factors that won't guarantee college credit or if it was worth two years of sleepless nights. Overall, I enjoyed my experience in Capuchino High School.
