What I liked about Pacifica High School was the school has a variety of academics anyone can partake in such as programs, activities, and events. What I liked the most was the informational YouTube videos made by the staff and students; it had news events about everything. A thing that should change about this school is the large population of students- this school was originally made to hold a certain capacity of students. And with many students has led to overfilled classrooms and programs getting filled up fast by other student. On top of that, with a large population comes long lunch lines, and with little enforcement of cutters. Our cafeteria has only about 9 lines for over 1,000 students and the a large amount of students have no respect. The cutters will let their friends cut and then their friends will let their friends cut and the cycle goes. Overall the school was up to standard, however, there should be more lunch lines and more enforcement of those cut in the lines.

Pacifica High School has always helped their students to be their best and to do their best. They offer numerous clubs, tutoring opportunities, and college readiness to help better prepare students for a successful future. I've loved attending Pacifica and would not have wanted to attend any other school!
I have always had a good experience here at Pacifica and I don’t see why other people wouldn’t agree! They have so many programs to offer and constantly urge students to go to college or pursue their education in some way. They are dedicated to helping other students who are struggling by offering support groups or counseling and I truly believe it is amazing.
