What I really liked about Healdsburg High School is that every time I struggled in a class like in math my teachers were always willing to offer their time after school to tutor me and help me do my homework. This school offers you many clubs that you could be part of like MAYO Club, AVID, Soroptimists club, etc. The counselors are always keeping track that you are passing all your classes and making sure that they pass out information of events like completing your FAFSA, applying for colleges and educational programs. The scholarship director of my school has been really helpful to me because she lets me know of any new scholarships I can be eligible for and the due dates. In the other hand, what I would like to see my high school improve on is the school spirit by everyone wearing the school colors (black and red) every Friday and to be a more diverse and fair environment by letting other's share their opinions.

Healdsburg High School is a great public school most people seem to not like it because it's so tiny and doesn't have as much variety in classes but they need to comprehend that the school is small and it would be unnecessary to have so many classes. Besides that, I think it's a great place that does its job right. I liked all the classes I've taken and didn't think I needed more from them. Currently, they are creating a new gym with to levels which I think is unnecessary but cool, hopefully it turns out great. School life is also a safe environment, you never feel in danger. Overall a sweet tiny school you should go to.
I love Healdsburg High's agriculture program and its small size, which allows students to really get to know each other and make bonds within their graduating classes. I also have enjoyed my experience being involved with Healdsburg High's sports program. My only complaint would be that it isn't an open district, but I understand the complications around making it one and how they are working on making it one in the future.
