Gompers Preparatory Academy allows low income students to prosper academically and showcase their true potential within their community. With that being said, students are offered a strong support system by councilors and build secure, reliable connections with certain teachers. High school student also begin to find and build their paths that helps lead them into their future. However, due to the focus on preparing 'college-ready' students, many students, especially high schoolers attending Gompers are stripped of their 'high school experiences.' Most students who attend this high school along side of myself, often miss out on the true experiences of high school rallies, homecomings, proms and the 'high school experience' that many across the state/country cherish.

I loved how Gompers Prep established a feeling of family within the community and the students. I felt highly supported by the teachers, who would often stay long hours to help students with tutoring. Even though it is a small school, I believe there could be more clubs to help the students express themselves. Overall, I enjoyed attending Gompers because they ensure students aren't discouraged from attending college and the whole staff is highly supportive and sympathetic to the students.
I love how Gompers is so involved in academics and helping students get to college. The school takes the time to work with each and every student to help them reach their full potential. Gompers is currently making a new gym so hopefully the sports will advance. The teachers are very involved in all academics and extracurriculars. Even though the school is located in one of the worst parts of SouthEast San Diego, the community members still make sure each and every student is safe. Growing up at this school has shaped me to reach out for help when I need it and to use my resources to my their full potentials.
