Academic wise, I succeeded but some teachers were sexist and relied on favoritism. There were some outstanding teachers who were great mentors as well. The Career Center has great resources as well but it has to be the students that want to engage in further opportunities. There wasn't much diversity as a whole or inclusiveness. Athletically, I played three sports of which were the highlights of my four years in high school. However, the funding was unorganized and coaches were temporary. My senior year was wild, there was constant bomb threats (majority false but causes many lockdowns) and some teachers were accused with relationships with students.

I really enjoyed the all of social science department classes. My teachers, Mr. Aliff and Ms. Ban, made them especially engaging and fun while still preparing us well for the AP exams. Also, a few of the English department teachers, like Mr. Espinoza and Ms. Bell, were very good and took special care for each of their students. However, the science department is quite unsatisfactory. With the exception of some, many of the teachers are lazy and do not prepare you for your AP exams, particularly AP Chemistry and AP Physics. Many students also complain about the math department for some unfair and lazy teachers. It is all self-studying. Also, there is an achievement gap between the two main races found at this school: most of the Asian American students tend to have top GPAs and have leadership positions while the Hispanic American students often throw themselves into sports and struggle with grades. The tennis coach there is one of the best; you're the best Coach Ward!!
My experience at Rosemead High School was very unexpected. Transferring from middle school to high school was different. I was very lost from the first day of school. I had a very difficult time finding my classes because was no orientation. I remember very vividly that many of the students in my grade had to print out the school campus to find the classes. Starting from Freshman year, I dealt with teachers who didn't teach and this occurred every year from that point on. A lot of the times I would self teach or have other people who knew the subject to teach me. Since this year I found that the school is trying harder to many the school better. I know personally that they issued a survey to every student and the results were not that great. I know that they are trying and that's why they made the motto: RHSCares. I see improves like the way campus looks and how the teachers start to care more about their students. I hope for this to continue and make the school better.
