Hi, I'm a student at Los Banos High School. I AM a junior. My overall experience has been great. All the teachers are very nice and I'm always si excited to go to school. The teachers here are really motivating because they always want the students to do their best at all times. The ladies in the office are also so so sweet. The only thing I kind of wished changed was the food. If the food was better it would be such an improvement! The school always remains clean. The environment here is positive well here and there. The staff of the school need to be a little more aware of what's going on on campus sometimes. Some students will bully others or tend to fight. Sometimes I wished the school would put out more fin activites for the students.

I have taken advantage of educational opportunities to prepare for university. One
method I have executed this was by taking some of the advanced placement courses at my school. I have completed an advanced placement course in Geography, European History, and U.S. History and I will be taking courses in Government and Politics, Macroeconomics, and English. In addition, I finalized a college level computer science class at Merced College during my junior year. The class, however, took place at my high school campus. This provided me to advance and challenge myself and encounter a college-level class and honor classes. Additionally, it allowed me to comprehend the rigorous
courses that are offered at universities. In this course, I was able to experience and develop a
sense of computer programming and coding and learned of HTML, Ruby, and Python.
I enjoy Los Banos High School because many of the teachers are actively involved with the students. They offer support for academics but also for any difficulties surrounding students' home lives. I also enjoy Los Banos High School for the students they are creating. They encourage out-of-the-box thinking and introspection. However, I would like to see more diversity out of the staff at Los Banos High School. For many students whose ethnicities differ, they don't feel as if they're relatable to the predominantly Caucasian and Mexican faculty, which can and will most likely cause overarching problems if this does not change.
