My experience at Apollo High School was impeccable. I was a part of clubs such as Key Club and DECA and National Honors Society, each focusing on helping out the community and promoting academic achievement, leadership, growth and character. The teachers all strived to prepare us for state testing and our future in general. We earned our A+ this last year for outstanding test scores and academic growth. Additionally, we have been recognized for our marching band, dance team, swim team, and soccer team on many occasions. Apollo gives students the chance at growth in a safe environment. We have remarkable students all coming from different backgrounds and lifestyles. Apollo embraces their diverse campus as they reach out to Dreamers to help them accomplish their goals, it has even formed a Black Student Union which empowers black students to achieve academic success and talk about problems they may face in America and it has an ELL Program for the parents. I love Apollo!

Throughout my sophomore and junior year, every classes and teachers I have had and have been so interesting and challenging! GUHSD has given me the opportunity to explore the experiences I could learn to build and enhance my future. Although the quality of food on school isn’t that good, the teachers and administrators are definitely helpful and caring.
I absolutely love Glendale School District. All the opportunities each and every student receives is unbelievable! I really enjoy being part of this district. I am only a sophomore but as an 8th grader I was able to come take algebra and that was an unforgettable experience. The staff is amazing, especially the office staff, very nice and helpful. The career center is also helpful and they really want to be there to help us with college preparation. These are just few reasons why I like being here and plan on never leaving well until I graduate, I must go.
