I personally have a very strong connection with this school because multiple cousins, a sibling, and even an uncle has graduated from this school. I will also graduate from this school and younger cousins are soon to follow. Although this school may have a bad reputation, it has definitely improved in terms of safety over the last few years. Our athletics have done exceptionally well this year as well. It goes to show that my peers can achieve their dreams if given the right direction and discipline. The poor performances can mostly be attributed to the student body. They generally do get into trouble per se yet they can improve on how they apply themselves to their education. The staff do the best they can with what they are given and are always available in the vent a student needs assistance.

Some of the teachers are Ganesha High School are amazing. My former math teacher taught me self-discipline the year I had him. He went at a fast pace to not only teach us every concept of Integrated Math II but also to teach us the concepts we missed in Integrated Math I. He is a very supportive teacher. When students need him after school for tutoring or advice, he is always there for them. What I would like to see changed is more teachers like this math teacher. Most of the teachers are uncompromising and difficult to learn from. If there were more teachers like my Integrated Math II teacher, my rating would be higher.
I enjoyed my four years attending this high school since it is a small school and a lot of my peers are people I can relate to as a Hispanic. I am glad I attended this school because I got a lot of opportunities and experiences that I could have never received elsewhere. A lot of people complain about this school but personally, those who complain the most are the ones who do not do anything to benefit the school. I was a part of three varsity sports and three academic clubs.
