I loved the fact that there was an option as to whether you would like to take AP courses or not; however, I do truly believe that the administration, should believe more in their students and really trust them in excelling in rigorous courses. Focusing less on sports and more in academics, especially in finding out what your passion is and trying new things that students would not have considered as part of their future. School should stop focusing an excessive amount of time in academics, they should focus on helping their students be able to succeed in the real world, examples of skills that students should learn would include networking, internships, training, learning to transition into the adult world, etc..

Salinas High has always been a great school and the best part of it is the sports there great! and every sport gives people a chance to try out I had the most fun experiences playing softball,field hockey,soccer, and lacrosse wouldn’t change my high school experience for a thing but I would recommend people being more involved in sports because it really helps you stay on track with grades especially doing grade checks every Wednesday.
As a sophomore and only having a year of experience at SUHSD, specifically Everett Alvarez High School, I’ve seen a lot of diversity as our student population is predominantly people from a Hispanic background. I am proud to attend a school that opens their arms to every student no matter their race, sexuality, religion, etc. As for the administration, I am not so proud. Every school event that I heard of, I heard from friends and my parents heard it from me. It’s safe to say that they’re strong suit isn’t spreading important news.
