Luther Burbank is a really acceptable school for all diversity. I felt welcomed, and felt that the teachers does care there for you. My English will always talk to me about my grades and will help and understand my personal problems. All the staff there are really open-minded, they listen to you, give you good advises, and will talk to you in person and ask what's going on.
The food there are made from all hard-working staff even students! It delicious! Something that I would like the school to change is probably making the lunch line too long! But other than that, Burbank is a welcomed school for everyone!

What I liked about luther burbank is that it was pretty easy to fit in. Not only because of it diversity, but also because most people that are willing to help are pretty nice. The teachers that I have had so far have all been helpful, whenever I needed help or advice with something they were willing to spend there time with me. It is somewhat easy to make friends in Luther Burbank. Something I wished that was different in Luther Burbank is the lunch. Most of it is good but my favorite sweet and sour chicken with rice was remove from the menu. Something else that I like from Luther Burbank are the clubs and encourage to play sports. For the athletes who play sports, we have mandatory study hall, wich is nice because it allows us to have a time to catch up on our homework to be on top of our grades. One other thing I like about Luther burbank is the library, wich is open from before school and stays open after school. It has help many times, for it has a large selection of books.
Luther Burbank High School is a school that cares about each and every student academic, safety, and future goals in life. The teachers at Luther Burbank High School are often involved in clubs, sports, and activities around the school helping students and providing a safe space for students after school. When in reality they do not need to spend their time helping at all. Luther Burbank High School have more than one academic programs that will help students determine their career path such as; construction and design, medical and health science, law and social justice, and etc. Not only the academic programs help students with their career path but also the diversity around the campus and all the staff supports around campus.
