My experiences in Mission High School since I arrived was very explicit during the pass of the years because I can have many experiences with people of other countries, meet new friends, teacher that help in the difficult moments when i arrive in United States, they help to feel more comfortable in the school, as well to meet people different languages, races and religions. The days that I pass in the school are amazing because I feel safe inside. Something that I like from the school is that bring too much help to the immigrants students that come from different spaces of the countries. Something that I want that school change is the form of threatening to the immigrants students because for example when for the microphone announce important information for the new Immigrants students or any announce , they don't understand because only is said in English the announced ,and not in Spanish or in other language and that reason i want it change.

Mission high school is a safety place for students learning new things, Mission High School is proud of its rich history and we have our very own museum on campus which takes visitors on a journey through the history of San Francisco as seen from the heart of the city. The museum is maintained by the Alumni Association.there is a park in front of the school, which is called Dolores park.
I love my high school, Mission High School is a very excellent school. People here are very nice and respectful. Everyone is friendly. Teachers here help me a lot, When I came here, my English is not very good, they explained to me a lot. When I face problems. they always support me. There are many clubs, I joined in some of them, they are interesting. One thing I would not like is the lunch, the school lunch is not very good, I think it should be changed, it should make more different kinds of food.
