I loved La Cuesta Continuation High School! I attended La Cuesta for the school year of 2011-2012 as a Senior. I was messing up ditching school as a junior at another high school and got transferred here . The atmosphere, the teachers, staff all made school much more likeable. I wish I wouldn't have ditched as often as I did and I really wish I would have gone to La Cuesta all 4 years of high school. It's a smaller campus and it felt like a family because everybody knew everybody. The class sizes were smaller so there was an opportunity for the teachers to actually get to know you instead of you being a nobody in the class. I loved my experience there and thankfully I graduated on time. There was a lot of work I had to do to graduate but I did it and am happy to say I graduated from this school.

Food is food, and when most people are hungry they will eat anything. I am a very picky eater, and most of the options offered to not accommodate my needs,; there are never any plain sandwiches, without condiments on them, etc, and most of the food offered is highly processed. The salad bar is nice, however there should be more offered because they run out of things too fast.
We do not have legit sports teams like most high schools, only this past year a small basketball team was put together. Not anything special, but I was in a yoga class offered as an elective. And physical education is very boring, we just walk around our small parking lot for x amount of time and use an app called Runkeeper to track our calories burned, distance and time,
