I am a current Junior at Magna Vista High School, and for the most part, I adore my school! We have a wide variety of classes and extracurriculars as well as many ways for students to become involved in their community and grow an impressive resumé. However my few complaints would be about the, however small, percentage of teachers who have become disenchanted with their jobs and simply don’t teach to the best of their abilities, as well as our both oppressive and sexist dress code.

Magna Vista High School has provided me with a learning environment where I can take control of the way that I obtain knowledge and grow as a student. What makes Magna Vista unique is a New Tech program names Warrior Tech Academy, which I am apart of, which has a foundation of project-based learning. Through this program, I have learned how to become an effective public communicator while also enhancing my leadership and collaboration skills. Outside of Warrior Tech, through the math and science classes that I have taken over my course of high school, has also been a positive learning experience. The teachers are always willing to help and stay after to make sure that all students are on the same page. Overall, everyone in the building is all working toward the goal of student success and creating a future for the upcoming generations.
When I first came to Magna Vista as a freshman, I was overwhelmed by the number of people I saw. As a pessimistic person, I believed that my years there would be filled with loneliness. However, over the years, I was welcomed with love by my fellow classmates, and my teachers ensured that I would get the best education possible. At Magna Vista, I met my life long friends. I truly believe that I would have found anyone like my friends at any other school. I've learned that my school welcomes everyone with love, no matter their race, religion, or differences that make a person unique. At my school, we take pride in being a warrior, especially at our school football games. Every game is filled with excitement and spirit, brought by supporting students and parents. I can proudly say that as my years at Magna Vista come to a close, that I have no complaints about the time I spent there. I love my school and no matter where life takes me, I will always be a Magna Vista Warrior.
