The Coachella Valley Unified School District has helped me alt, getting me prepared for life, helped me gratining me great education, it’s making me a better person, plus it is helping me to succeed, something that I never though if doing specially because I am an AB540 student. Things have been harsh being an immigrant but life in the districts helps me feel special and that anything is possible, one just to give themselves a chance and fight for what they want!

The school district is located on the southern part of Riverside County. It is a warm community with loving parents, alumni, teachers, and staff. It is a low-income district, and because of this not many programs and opportunities are offered for students. Despite this, the atmosphere of the schools and people are warm and loving. Students want to learn and strive to do so, despite their economic struggles. Many of our students speak two languages and their parents work in the fields. They want more and it is seen in the community as a whole. Everyone knows everyone! Because of this, there is a sense of home in the schools.
As a sophomore of Coachella Valley High School, I would like to see many changes and improvements. Our school is very old and I would like for the school to be rebuild for the incoming students. Instead of the counselors putting students in random classes so that they can fill in the capacity, I would like them to put them in classes they actually need. The football team also needs to stop having special privileges. The district needs to fund smaller clubs and organizations such as The CV dance team!
