I love how the staff members are always making feel everyone welcomed and part of the school. They are always helping the ones in need and providing and helping in whatever possible way they can. Something that i would like to see a change is representatives or staff members that are Chicano or people of color to be in the leadership roles as well, such as the school board or even as well as teachers. As well as more union in the school having no racism or oppression to our people of color.

I really enjoyed the social aspects of school, though it seems as though it would have been better had there been less groups of students in their own circles. Perhaps it would have been better had activities been facilitated so that students of different groups would get together.
I recently just moved to Walla Walla High School and I believe students who transfer to that school don't hear much about the clubs and after school curricular activities at all. The staff at the school are amazing! They are willing to help anyone at any times, they go above beyond the amount that they are given. The academics that are offered at the school are great and they prepare you for college and if they don't your the one who is doing something wrong, if you can't figure it our just talk to a staff member they will get you the help that you need in order to get you back on track. I would recommend anyone to go to Walla Walla High School and if won't be a waste of your time, you will see the results in the end.
