It was a good tight-knit high school, not a lot that goes on and not a lot of school spirit. The way they gear kids up to get ready for college and other careers is great! Not a lot of diversity with it being mostly Latino kids from the neighborhood, they really set me up for success!

In this high school there are endless opportunities, and possibilities. We have such a supportive staff that work hard to ensure all their students complete their work with 110% effort. No one is given up on, and every student is encouraged to pursue their ideal career path while receiving opportunities to help reach their goal. All in all, this school was the best choice, and every time I tell others about where I attend they always remind me how lucky I am, and how I should take advantage of everything offered at this amazing school.
Overall, I love my school, but the lack of communication makes it difficult to learn, and it can become very stressful. Personally, my aim academically is to maintain straight A's, but I want to have resources and opportunities offered to me without me having to ask, because I already stress with studying extra hours or staying after school to seek extra help in order to score well. Also, when we are compared to others, or told our scores aren't at the rate they prefer it really causes a lot of students to become discouraged which affects my mood and the environment.
