In John Adams High School, I liked teachers and cultures because they are so nice, friendly and helpful. When I first came to school I didn't know English, but they always helped me. They helped me speak English and now I know better English. Also, nobody judges any other cultures students always respect. However, I would like to change food in school because students don't want to eat the same food everyday so sometimes students don't eat food and they can't attend the class so it can affect their grade. Therefore, I want that new food and students never gonna be hungry in the school and students can always attend in school.

As a student who attended John Adams High School, I had a great journey from freshman to senior year. When I first started attending I had the constant assistance of counselors and teachers. They provided me with such great advice that it helped pave an excellent academic path for the upcoming years. I was also advised to participate in extracurriculars, not just make my college applications more competitive but also to improve my experience at school. The sports and other extracurriculars helped me become a better person socially and deal with a wide range of problems that eventually helped me mature and set myself right for my future. I came into John Adams as a boy and left as an educated young man.
Honestly, i have a great experience in JAHS.Because,over there i met tons of people and it was like great diversity.People from different countries come all together and discussed about the issues of global economy. Then, i also work with many groups.For example:Global Kids,Liberty partnership program,fusion club and many others.I and many other people on global kids discussed about globalization,global warming and variety of different topics.Then, on LPP we work on the college prep,SAT prep and many other things.Then i also so artwork on the fusion Club.Then,i'm also in the newspaper Club.I talk about the various topics to discussed on and come up with a solution.
