As a student at Grant Union High School I grew up into the striving college student I am today. The school itself has had some bad reputation due to some conflicts such as fist fights and other problems in the past due to the location and neighborhoods surrounding the campus. However, as me and my peers experienced, Grant is a school where you can grow as a student if you put in hard work and communicate well with your professors and collaborate to have a more engaging education. The staff is really caring and supportive, no matter what kind of student you are.
Review Grant Union High School
Throughout high school my academics have been encouraged continuously. My school takes high initiative in providing opportunities for it's low income community's students to strive for and achieve success. If it wasn't for my school's amazing faculty and Advanced Placement curriculum, I would not have became the academically competent and strong individual I am today. The school itself, although it has a bad reputation for being ghetto, is one of the best schools a person developing into adulthood can attend.
UC Davis is definitely a great school. It's location has good neighborhoods and has a really good vibe and environment. I can tell many people care for their city. This school is filled with open minded and friendly people. The education system is also great. There's always help when you need it. I think the reason why I wouldn't rate it the best is because of my personal likings. I knew about Davis and been around there since I was a little girl. I didn't live in Davis but I had family who attended Davis before I did. So I guess I wanted new experiences and sights which would bring me to much more excitement. Other than that, Davis is awesome! Go Ags!
