I am in Puente, which helps me excel in my academics. Puente is a very positive class where I made a group of friends all striving for the same dream, to go to college. I have also, been involved in sports such as softball and waterpolo, which helped me be more invloved with my school. As well, as joining the Baile class my freshman and senior year, performing for my school, and representing my school to the rest of my community. I have also, been president of the Aguilar Guerreras club, along with being vice president of the Baile Folkorico club. All these elements helps build my experience here at Everett Alvarez, providing me the best experience possible. However, a down fall personally are a few of the teachers at Alvarez. Teachers do have a great contribution to our learning and understanding, and unfortunately not all teachers are passionate and willing to do the most to help us succeed.

Everett Alvarez High School is a public school in Salinas California. This school for me is like my second home. It allowed me to discover myself more than I thought I could. The staff is very friendly. This school for me is significant for me because coming from a low-income family having a good education is meaningful to me. This school is very diverse and a majority of the people attending are of low-income families, like me. This school offers amazing programs like the AVID, Puente, and AG Academy programs and the school also offers several clubs such as the national honors society, college club, AVID club and a majority of other clubs. This schools always has activities that help students feel welcomed, I will miss this school once I graduate soon, but I hope many future generations will enjoy it like I did. Overall, I am very satisfied with my experience at the schools.
What I like about Alvarez is that there are many teachers that want to see you succeed in life and want to help you and are always checking up on you making sure you are on track. There are many programs that help you with colleges like Gear Up, Avid, Puente, etc. There is also a variety of clubs for people to feel safe in and at home, and they are very flexible with coming up with your own club, for a reasonable purpose. They try to get parents involved with their child's academics, which I believe is very helpful, because they are helping the parents understand more what is going on in their child's academic life. They also have a Safety nest, for people who want someone to talk to and want to keep it confidential, which is an amazing thing because people do need someone to talk to, and get advise from, and be able to feel safe in a place other than their home, and be able to speak of whatever is going on in their lives.
