I love Everest because it is highly a small school! It gives me the opportunity to reach out to my teachers, getting one on one help, and overall create relationships with them. It is definitely a college prep school where we are surrounded by my technology and playlists that help us independently study on our own. We have a tradition every year where all freshman, sophomore, junior, and seniors go on a camping trip and create community bondings! It is diverse which makes me feel more like at home since I am from East Palo Alto and not Redwood City. They give the best elective classes that are UC Approved, for example, Ethnic Studies, in which a few schools don't really include. I am in my Junior year and had spent the last 2 in a half years has an unweighted GPA of a 4.0. Everest gives all students the opportunity to be in AP classes to give them the challenge of their education. Overall, it is a great school and can't believe I am leaving in less than 2 years!

Overall, I like my school, the schedule isn't the best, but I feel as their education system, is amazing and fits me most as a student than any other high school I think of. Everest Public High School is a college prep charter school with not many students attending which does make it easier for me because I feel like I'm a student that requires a lot of attention from teachers in order for me to be at my best, it also makes the work for the teachers kind of stress free too. My school also offers many all around subject courses like Screenwriting classes, which I'm going to be a teacher assistant for because I enjoy cinematography a lot.
I have been given all the academic necessities to succeed in academia. Additionally, the environment promotes a growth mindset and passion for education! I have learned and developed so many skills! I am proud to call myself and Everest snow leopard.
