My experience at Los Angeles Senior High School was interesting. There were times of excitement and certainly times of hardship. What I enjoyed most at Los Angeles Senior High School were the times spent with my friends engaging in sports activities or school activities. It was during those times that I grew most as an individual and understood myself and my capabilities better. By participating in different activities such as MESA, Soccer, Leadership, Bible Club, SRLA, Track & Field, Cross Country, and many others, I met a new and diverse set of people that have changed me for the better. I also enjoyed making connections with my teachers and staff on campus. Though there are other things that should be improved at our school, one important asset that should be improved is the school spirit. Without any school spirit, the students do not participate in any activities nor do they enjoy attending their own school. All in all, I have enjoyed my 4 years at Los Angeles Senior High School.

I remember as if it were yesterday, the first days I went to Los Angeles Senior school As a newcomer, the school needed to verify my fluency in English language; therefore, I had talks with my counselor. Due to being overly anxious, I answered my counselor's questions with hesitation and halting. With two questions, my counselor regarded me with scorn and told me to do the standardized test next week; it is kind of like saying “There was not any difference at all even if you do the test”. I left the counselor office with a sense of loss and despair; however, I exhorted my own soul with optimistic words and keep doing my works. Ultimately, I proved that I am adequately qualified to undertake a given task by passing the Maths and English replacement tests. Since then, I consistently effort to overcome all my struggles. Anyway, after overcoming that time, I enjoy this school especially teachers' supports that they encourage me to gain access with lots of extracurricular activities.
Most of the teachers really care about passing their knowledge to students. Teachers will always try to help you, and if you care a lot about a subject their subject they are happy to talk more in depth about it. The administration gets information to students most of the time, but they also have a lot of hiccups (ordering the wrong A.P exams, not listening to student feedback). The Music and Arts teachers really care about what they teach, putting a lot of their time on the subject and preparing students to learn what they need if they decide that they'll focus on these subjects in college. The same can be said about the STEM department. While the school may lack school spirit, they make it up in inclusiveness. There is room for any interest if you find the right club/friends to hang out with.
