My experience with King City High School was been very good as I appreciate what this school has done for my education. This school has helped me prepare for college and made me believe that attending a small school does not give you an advantage or disadvantage. It is based on the student's work ethic. I do not think students should not make excuses that the school has nothing to offer because there is something to do, but they are not making the effort to actually join and support their school. I understand that the school can not give us everything we want and the fact that the school is trying their best to give as much resources to the students. The school has been around for a very long time, and the school has managed to go through hardship and managed to achieve many accomplishments. That is why I believe that King City is one of the most reasonable schools to attend to as it gives the students the essential tools to prepare for college.

King City High School has an amazing sense of community and the academic courses that are offered are very diverse. There is, however, an overwhelming amount of favoritism that occurs and the math level is very poor.
My overall experience is a lot of competition. Trying to be the top 10% isn't very difficult, but it's still hard because of the motivation. It's just difficult to focus on education because i think that many people put sports above everything. I would not choose this school again because i personally think the teachers aren't so great. They need a different work ethic and it's up to the students to teach themselves.
