My school experience was great! We La Joya Palmview has awesome staff and the school environment was great everyone knew everyone and we were all really friendly towards each other being that mostly everyone was in sports and teamwork was always involved. But when it came to education the faculty was lacking that little push that made us want to learn. They kept things uninterested and usually only had worksheets for us and minimal lecture, we were most definitely not prepared for college.

I love education, to me it's the solution to many global problems such as poverty, global warming or violence. For this reason, I believe we deserve the best education not just good books or the best technology but people capable of making us "the change", that change that the world needs.
Palmview HS is a very good school, it has all type of materials that students may need, like electronic divces, books, training material and even good food to maintain active students. Also our school has teachers and material of arts and sports to push all the good talents.
However, eventhough our school has all those good things, some of the teachers might not be that good. Just how there's many good ones, some of them just don't know how important is to keep students active and learning something new every day. I'm a big fan of life lessons, and such as teenagers to me they're essential for our development. I would love to see willing teachers to give us tools for our future.
Overall I had a great time at Palmview this year! My teachers were great and everyone is friendly. I love my principal, she’s the best. The only thing that was a downer this year were my math classes. Overall, it was a great 2019-2020 school year!
