Overall my experience at this school has been okay, although I did make the best of it. One of my favorite experiences at this school is being able to be part of ASB Leadership class. Not only were you involve in every single thing that happens around the school, but you were also utilizing your communication skills and open-mindedness. Even though I had an okay experience here at Dos Palos High, I would not choose this school again and do it all over. For one, saying your ideas to make the student body better or ideas to have a better environment will not go into consideration for the teachers it will be a straight NO! Teachers here base their students grades by favorites which I do not like at all. Overall even though I had some good times, I would not come back to do it all over again.

What I enjoyed about this school is how easy it was to make friends, because it is such a small town. It is great to see people get along. Although what I would like to see changed is the resources provided for students and opportunities in the different field of studies.
I liked that the school was small enough that you could know everyone and feel like a community. However, since the school is small there were less opportunities.
