After going to El Molino High all four years of my high school career, I can say that it has helped me gain confidence in myself. Not only academically, but also mentally. The teachers there taught me how to care about my own career path along with teaching me the importance of supporting my peers along the way. Although the school is low funded, it does everything that it can to support their students and help them accomplish high school and their future after. They provided me numerous amounts of college readiness support and helped me apply to college there on campus. El Molino is a great place to surround yourself with others who have high personal and academic goals.
When I was going to school at El Molino it was extremely underfunded because of some teacher issues that occurred before I was a freshman. Since then the school has begun to get back on its feet and more programs and classes are being offered. The teachers were very caring and really tried to give their students the best education they could under the circumstances and even though we were using textbooks from the early 1990's and reading novels our parents names were in they really engaged us in the classroom. I participated in the art, music, theater, and golf programs at El Molino, which I can honestly say were the most affected by the budget cuts the school had to take. In art, the instructor paid for most of our supplies out of her own pocket to ensure that we had the materials we needed in order to succeed. In music, we brought back the machine band which had disbanded in the early 2000's and we won every parade we entered with only about twenty five students.
