I have mostly positive things to say about my experiences in Pacific Law Academy (PLA). One of the first questions my class was asked during my freshman year was what college we were interested in and what careers we planned on attempting to achieve. Throughout all of my time at PLA the idea of getting into college was something that all the students wanted to achieve. Mrs. Tomlin, the counselor that was there during my highschool years, was great at setting up all the students with classes that will fulfill their credit requirements to get into college. The school also made the process of applying for FAFSA, College, and even a scholarship extremely easy. Whenever we applied to those 3 things we would all do it during a specific time period during school and the teachers would help us go through it. I’m not sure how many other highschools do that, but it was very helpful for me since I was the first person in my family going to college and was unfamiliar with the process.

So far my experience at Pacific Law Academy has been very good. The people there are incredibly nice, and the teachers are very cool to be around. The school does a good job of encouraging us to learn, while still allowing us to make our own choices and improve our responsibility. I received one of the best educations I could have under the Stockton Unified School District, and I am very thankful to my teachers for that. Pacific Law Academy is a rather small school, but that just makes us all feel like more of a family. My only problem with Pacific Law Academy are the bathrooms; there is only one girl's bathroom (with 4 stalls) for about 100 girl students. Most of the time this is not a huge issue, but after 6th period everyone apparently has to use the bathroom and it makes me late to my next period class. This, however, is my only problem with this school.
I've been at PLA since my sophomore year and from my experience I can say that it's not quite like any other school. There are the pros and cons when attending this charter school. This school readily prepares students for college with rigorous academics and great resources, however, the school culture isn't the best. There isn't much school spirit and class participation in activities when it comes to rallies and or events.
