My overall experience has been acceptable. The teachers take their students in with open arms and help them to be the best person or student they can be. The English department has tremendously helped me with my writing skills and assisted me in passing the AP English and Composition test. Also, the non-native foreign language department has some of the best teachers on campus. Mrs. Sanchez was successful in passing all of her students on the AP Spanish Language test. However, the teaching skills in the science department needs improvement in communication. Due to a lack of communication, the majority of my class did not know that there was a cumulative final and could not find their first-semester notebook. This jeopardized my A- in the class. Although this occurred during my freshman year, new teachers have come in and I am optimistic for the future of Oxnard High School's science department.

I like the fact that Oxnard Union High School District gives opportunities to its students to advance their education through Advanced Placement classes to be much more prepared for a college path. For example, my high school has added a new AP class that focuses in analytical writing and research, this comes to show that the Oxnard Union High School District encourages better education opportunities. The district can improve, at least in my school, the nutrition that it provides for its students: making the food fresher and more intriguing. Also, the district should definitely be more sustainable: removing disposable water bottle vending machines, and instead adding cold, refrigerated refill stations to incentivize the pro-choice of reusable water bottles. Finally, the district has to improve its vigilance on its students with drug usage, in particular, the vaping trend, which can be found quite ridiculously frequent in my school, which gets unnoticed by supposed "camp supervisors".
My personal experience at Pacifica High School was great. I was exposed to many experiences and opportunities here at this school. This community is so diverse and welcoming, it made my high school years fun and unforgettable. Some of my best memories have been made at this school. In addition to that, a few teachers that I've crossed paths with here at PHS have been some of the most inspiring, pure, wholesome people I have ever met and probably will ever meet. This school has motivated me tremendously. I have the drive to succeed more because of this school and that is exactly what I will do.
