Attending Pacific high school has been overall a wonderful experience! From my classes and the teachers I've had, to the sports & clubs I've participated in. Being a part of the girls basketball team and Asb has really made my years in high school exciting since freshman year up until now, my Junior year, and these are only two examples of what I have done in Pacific over the years! I believe I have accomplished and experienced so much in this small piece of life while attending Pacific.

Pacific High School does not have the best reputation. However, that reputation is less than accurate. With programs such as Biomedical, Digital Design and Communications, and Animation. This opens the doors for students such as myself, paid internships, field trips in regards to the respected class, and special guests who specialize in the fields. When it comes to sports, we are not nameless, many of our sports have made it to CIF and have competed and won many awards. The school is highly diverse being in the heart of the IE, no matter the student, be it their race, culture, background, etc., none of that is discriminated against by anyone in Pacific High School. Pacific High School even has a graduation rate in the 90 percentage. Overall, even if Pacific may be located in a less than good neighborhood, and the reputation is lackluster, it is a magnificent high school, and I am proud to say yes, I am a Pacific Pirate.
Pacific High School is as good as any other school but you have to have the work ethic to succeed. All of the teachers here really do care about succeeding because most of them grew up in San Bernardino and they wish to see the next generation succeed too. The community can be friendly but it can also be hostile, just avoid trouble and do start problems and you should be find. The administration and staff have been trying to make Pacific High School a better learning environment for students and it is noticeable that they are trying to better the school.
