I really like the diversity and the teachers in our school! I find that all my teachers have been very involved and very caring and thoughtful towards me and my education, and we are very forward-thinking and openminded. The school has offered me all kinds of support! I would definitely like for there to be more funding for improving the school's infrastructure and giving students cleaner water, better restrooms, better lunches, etc. I hope that the staff and teachers are being paid well, and that we focus more on helping all students from different backgrounds.

A very well-running public school system that I'm proud to have graduated from! However, in recent years, it's all about politics- "diversity," numbers, income inequality- and more often than not, it's in the way of offering stable and quality education to ALL students instead of rearraging and flipping the system as a whole
San Francisco offers a lot of opportunities for students, much more than some other school districts around the country. Since it is also a hub for biotechnology, this is a place where a lot of careers are presented to students!
