My experience at Mount Miguel High School was definitely interesting. By the fact that throughout the years, I've learned to mature and become the young adult I am today. Mount Miguel High School was a school were the faculty and staff truly wanted to see students to succeed. The endless support by the faculty and staff should not go unnoticed. As students who come from low income families, Mount Miguel shows that they really care by providing resources and advocating for students to continue their academics and go to college. With that being said, despite some of the ups and downs I personally had, Mount Miguel was a school that cared about their students education and took pride in making a change in the community.

What I love about Mount Miguel is that every student comes in with different backgrounds but they still get treated equally. They have very good sports programs that every student gets a chance to enter. What I really like is the Theatre program, I plan on taking it for all the years I am enrolled in this school. We have many programs such as matador early collage, Matador business academy, our health program and many more. My school prepares students for not only college but for their future careers as well. We have many clubs that are fit for any culture, i.e Philipino and Franch club. Some things that my school can work on is meeting with students more, to help them with their grades and mental health.
I was a student at Mt. Miguel High School for all four years of my high school experience. Mt. Miguel allowed me to flourish with my Science and Mathematics abilities, from excellent teachers to challenging assignments. I made lasting friendships and was prepared to take the next steps in life. My time at Mt. Miguel is something I will always remember and always treasure.
