My overall experience at De Anza high school has been good because the school provides a safe and comfortable place where students can learn, grow, and discover new ideas. The school has experienced and professional teachers and counselors who assist and support students with all the help they need. One thing I wish that the school can improve on is their school lunch, In my opinion, they serve little food to the students during lunch most of the time it's not enough to sustain the students throughout the day.

My overall opinion of De Anza is good. They have classrooms that specifically accommodate the the subjects that are taught. Other classrooms have Apple desktop computers to allow for top tier training in the technological programs they use. There’s another class that is specifically designed to accommodate for activities that have to with ceramics. The rest are quite basic in set up because not much is needed besides desks, a white board, and an overhead camera. One of my favorite parts about De Anza is the amount of diversity it has. It makes me feel at home and more comfortable. As for the teachers, most of them are great and even go as far as having personal relationships with the kids rather than just throwing out facts and assignments and expecting them to automatically grasp the material. Others don't know that education needs to be individualized for some of the students. College readiness isn’t the best mainly because it’s been said that De Anza coddles it’s students.
De Anza High School is very diverse within their students and faculty. They allow for students to advocate for themselves and speak upon matters that they feel are unjust. Being a newly graduate from this school, all I can say is the students and faculty have developed and changed me over the years to the person I am today. Though we have had some issues in the past and our education is top-notch, the teachers really care about the students and want to prepare us for college in many ways possible.
