I had a great experience at Godinez Fundamental High School, the teachers and counselors always provided students with support and guidance and helped us become the best students and people we could be. There was multiple opportunities for students to pursue their different passions, I was able to be an AP and Honor student while also being in athletics and in the visual and performing arts. There was a wide variety of clubs and extracurricular activities that students could be involved with and great access to resources such as help with scholarships, applying for financial aid, and tutoring.
As a current student of Godinez Fundamental High School, I would like to praise the school for its amazing achievements and high academia. As a Vietnamese-American, I am a minority in a school of minorities. This means that there are definitely times where I know I do not fit in. However, the friendly and welcoming students at this school make this experience worthwhile. The teachers at this school are supportive of the students and strive to ensure that they can assist them in their best abilities. The only change I wish to see in this school is increasing athletic facilities. We do not have tennis courts or a swimming pool because of limited land and funding. Even so, if this issue could be addressed, many of the students would be truly grateful for the improvement.
