Every person that works there tries to include every culture, I say this because I am Puerto Rican. When I entered high school, they made sure that my teachers were bilingual or understood at least Spanish and if the teachers didn't knew the language then they would assign a translator. The school would also celebrate the Hispanic month and would tell fun facts about the hispanic culture. The teachers, counselors, and administrators really cares and support their students.

I started attending Lorain High School my junior year. My experience so far has been good; majority of the staff are friendly and only want the best for there students. Teachers offer tutoring hours and are excited to help their students excel! There are a variety of sports to choose from including soccer and golf which I hope to participate in this upcoming spring. The school is safe and the facility's are sanitary and very well kept. The food is way better then the food I was severed at my other school and the school provides free breakfast and lunch to all its students. There is cozy library which has many informational books and computer labs. Qualified students can take college classes right at the school and receive dual credit which I am currently doing right now and I love it! When it comes to the students many of them are lazy and ignorant but there are some who like I are smart, eager to learn and well behaved.
Being in a poor area, my school lacked a lot of opportunities for students. Programs, clubs, arts, extracurriculars, and some classes were cut. We did have a dual-enrollment opportunity through the city's community college. We were told we would receive an Associate of Arts degree when we graduated high school. However, it wasn't until a few months before graduation that students found out we would still need 1+ year(s) to earn the degree. The grade rating from our school was always very poor. Attendance and behavior was poor. Bullying and vandalism were prevalent and more often than not, were ignored by the school. If I had the choice, I would have attended another high school.
