During my four years the Grossmont Union High School has been good in many ways! It was opened up many doors for many students to overcome their obstacles and reCh their goals. I know many students of the Grosmmont Union High School District are approciating their opportunity, some more than others. The only dislike about the district I have is how they were too involved in certain movements that were very meaningful to students like me. Yes, many students are welcome and they know, but sopport for clubs or actually demonstating in a touching way to others how the district is unified to stand up for its students would be great.

My personal experience at Santana High School of the Grossmont Union Highschool district can be described as pleasant and beneficial for someone like me who is pursuing college after High School. The teachers, for the most part, are friendly and helpful, holding tutorials to help students better understand any of the courses material. As an AP and Honors student I have also been the recipient of genuinely intellectual teachers and staff, who provide a challenging but effective teaching environment. The atmosphere at Santana is friendly, and bullying is almost nonexistent. If there was a change that needed to be made to Santana however, it would be for the higher staff positions, such as the Principle and Vice Principle, to allow students to better influence how the school is run, and to be more open to student ideas.
The Grossmont Union High School District is a district with unique individual schools. The schools do not vary greatly in academics and sports, however, there are schools with more improved programs. A change I would like to see is more funding within the school's programs and institutions, a great population of students, and improvement in college readiness. At my Grossmont Union District High School, I have enjoyed the connections I have created with the teachers and students. I have been actively involved in my school as I joined clubs, play sports, and hold leadership positions in my activities.
