Attending Gonzales High School has been the most superb years to prepare me to strive throughout and build up into my career path. With the help of my teachers and staff have impacted my high school experience with providing resources to achieve and expand. Based upon workshops provided by these mentors have influenced me to go beyond and experience many opportunities. One of the most amazing experiences I’ve had was going on a trip to Washington D.C. This trip was splendid, I learned more in depth the historical events, how it impacted people’s life, and how it established today’s government. Gonzales High School also provides us students with a rigorous, dynamic, and essential curriculum with diverse opportunities to succeed and thrive. The change Gonzales High School would need is getting more volunteers to help with small-group activities, reading to children, or correcting papers for teachers. Sharing our time and talents with one another to build relationship.

Gonzales Unified School District is very poor. About 3/4 of the students are economically disadvantaged and set back because of this. Most of the teachers are not very good at teaching, with the exception of a few teachers who really care about the students. The academics at Gonzales are really low, with the math department being the worse.
My experience in Gonzales high school has been good and memorable. But somethings that I believe they should change are there teachers, because we need teachers to help us out not teachers who cant control a class and don't know how to teach.
