As an alumni, I loved Julian. I was a transfer student, and even though we were low funded, my school still made sure that every student felt as though they were going to be great. My mom didn't want me to go to Julian because its a public school and she thought I'd be bullied. Every high school has bullying, it's up to the person to let it effect your studies. Julian helped me learn who I was and how to believe in myself. Julian also had plenty of sports and programs for students. I joined water polo, the swim team, Mic Terroists poets, and even had the chance to run the student Audio Activism Facebook page.

What I like about Percy Julian High School, is the effort the staff put in to make sure all students are successful and on track for graduation. I also like the programs that are held, its an extra support system that student a lot of times are in need of. The change i want to see in Percy Julian is amount of assembly's being held to bring the school together as one so the students can build relationships with one another so there they are in an peaceful environment.
The teachers are pretty good at their jobs and makes the learning fun. There is lack of diversity because of the district that its located in. The school makes sure that the students are prepared for college staring in the students freshman year.
