The Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District is excellent. Of course, there could be room for improvement. One would be better food options, though students eventually get used to the taste. The teaching staff have either perfect teaching methods or are very hard to understand. It was rare that I ever stumbled upon a teacher who was hard to understand, but I have encountered them. It is the right mix of students though there is a large percentage of students coming from Hispanic descent. It's a school district with good people that I have met over the years, both of the staff and students.

What I like about my school district is that it allows me to join in class and opportunities that some other schools or districts cannot provide for their students. Therefore, having the privilege to be in many AP classes and clubs and not be questioned on why seems to be allowing my to be independent and involved in my school. Although there are tiny thought in my head about how high school is about to over and I won’t have to see half the people that go to my school, it really has pushed my boundaries and expectations I see for myself.
Some of the things I liked about the district is they did offer some AP classes on the campus and the teachers I had were also very nice and helpful. One thing I would think of changing is probably the help they give other students that aren't in AP classes. I did overhear some students complain that they felt like the school dud not put much emphasis on their curriculum. I would also like to see more diversity on the campus with AP they offer since when I went there was only some of the basic ones. Now that my brother goes there however, he does say that they have grown in the AP classes they offer.
