From personal experience, there were diversity within the campus that I enjoyed from individuals, clubs, classes and more! However, I would hope that there can be more school oportunities and recognition to get people involved with the available sources like clubs that were given.

As a student who attended Robert F. Kennedy for the entire four years of high school, the teachers, staff, and faculty were all very attentive and communicated well with the diversity of students. Not only did they prepare the students for college, but for what life has in store for us in the near future. The motivational push on the campus generated a form of energy that wanted students to be a better version of ourselves and for our families. Another amazing experience witnessed from the school is the sports and athletes that are underestimated. Coming from a small town in the Central Valley of California, many students athletes are undermined thus creating more motivation for students to get their school name out there, rather than just being unknown for their amazing achievements.
At this school, there is such an amazing culture. Most of the teachers grew up in this town, so they understand how much of an opportunity and respect these students who specifically go to this school (mainly the Mexican culture, children of field workers and those who do not really have many other opportunities) have.
