I loved every person i met at my high school. Playing softball and volleyball helped me meet some of my best friends. The coaches also helped me so much throughout my whole high school experience. The academics at my school were also very challenging, but ended up helping me in the long run. The teachers were always available for help and always had an answer every time i asked a question. My counselor also helped me on the track for heading off to college. She helped me with scholarships and even deciding what i wanted to major in and where I ended up deciding to apply. Overall, my whole experience was very good and fun because I will never forget all of the memories I made there.
I like all of the Teachers I have had they seem to focus on the students on helping them get where they need to be. We have a lot of many different clubs so there is something for everyone. We are really bad at Football but we do pretty well in the rest of the sports. Our School does have a pool in the school. The majority of the school is Hispanic. We are one of the few Schools around the area that does have a foreign exchange program which is really good. The Forgen language that the school offers are Spanish 1-5 and Spanish for natives and Ap Spanis lit and lag, German and French. Other clubs to travel out of the country WEGOLBA dose they went to the Dominican Republic in the summer of 2018 which I went too and it was an amazing experience it was a volunteer service trip and it was open to anyone so I met people from different grades. I know they are leaving to Belize for another service trip for 2019/2020. The school gives us Chromebooks which are okay but not the best.
