    The teachers, resources, and student activities are great. There are many teachers who are clearly happy to be there and truly passionate about the material they teach. They are open to sacrificing their lunches to help students out and support any endeavors that the students embark on. Likewise, the counselors and all student resources are robust and plentiful, resulting in an environment that is very open and conducive towards personal growth. At the same time, the students have spirit and are high-achieving, but not competitive, fostering an enriching academic environment. Our school has many successful student organizations like robotics and speech and debate that all emphasize collaboration as a path towards success. I can't say the same for our administration.

    I love the opportunities offered to students attending Mountain View High School. Being able to choose classes and making flexible changes if needed is super helpful. The counselors at our school take interest in how we can better our education and the meetings held with students is always informative. I also love that there is a tutorial schedule at school which is taking about 35 minutes in a school day to go to a class or teacher in which you want to improve your academic excellence. We are also lucky that our school offers a program named AVID that stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination which is a college-preparedness course that I am fortunately in, that focuses on providing opportunities to first generation students who want to attend college. Mountain View High School is a very remarkable school but should represent diversity among students and teachers more.
    LAHS was a pretty good high school. Most people don't care about each other, so there was no real drama or bullying. However, this means the school culture sucks. I have been to a single football game in my entire time there! The dances also kinda suck.
