My experience at my high school was overall great. I met friends from diverse cultural backgrounds and bonds with staff that I appreciate because they helped me get through my for years and make sure I was in the right track. I learned great tools from my peers and adults there that gave me insight on what will be the rest of my life. I am grateful for the opportunities that this school has given me and other students who need it, such as scholarship nights or after school programs. The teachers make sure the students are receiving as many opportunities to improve their grades and skills. Everyone here is a community, coming from a relatively small town.

My high school experience was a great one. I am now a senior and I’ve seen positive changes happening to the underclassmen. For example, recently my school has started a program called LINK leaders, which basically gives a handful of freshman, a senior or junior to be there go to person, whether it be a friend, class work, questions about high school, anything really. I wish I had it my freshman year, as I had so many questions and no one to go to. I personally am a member of this club, and I think it’s impacting the life’s, and high school experience of freshman.
Lompoc high school is an overall decent high school. The only issue is they emphasize too much on the football team and do not support all other sports as much. They allow certain athletes get away with academic requirements in order to play sports. But the emphasis on education is not as high as I wish it would of been. Nor does it really prepare you for college, in some ways yes but In others they definitely need to improve.
