In my four years of forming part of the Yuma Union High School District, I have been provided with utilities and learning experiences that have widen the spectrum of opportunities that one may have as a student. This district has privileged us, as students, with not only college readiness, but has devised a program that prepares its students for the real world. The district has proven itself to be solicitous about the welfare of their students and those involved. They have respectfully shown their attention to equality for all their students and provide a diverse range of activities in which their students can participate in. They ensure that everyone is involved and has a voice with in their schools. Yuma Union High School District has never failed to prove its worthiness to its students and the community, and for that, I am grateful to have been part of such a remarkable district.
The most I liked about the actual school experience at kofa high school was the teachers. Besides janitors and lunch people, teachers are very hard workers here. They are always attentive to your questions and always happy to help due to the fact that hardly anyone else actually cares about their education that they don’t get any questions after class or even during class. The thing I mainly don’t like is that students here don’t really care about their future, most are disgusting degenerates who are so addicted they’ll do drugs in the school to get their high. It’s the main reason people look at us like like we’re a joke, Yuma is a low poverty state for a reason.People here are the same and will stay the same because no one cares. But for the 5% who actually care about their lives and future,I see them as someone I can talk to because I share their same values. Thank you for your time and effort for giving me this opportunity to pay for my tuition at NAU.
