My experience with San Benito High School is mostly a positive one. The people, both students and staff, are friendly enough. They have nice counselors willing to work with a student's goals or needs. They are fixing the building and making it look more polished, classrooms are getting better equipment like touch screen boards, newer desks, floorboards are being replaced and they are even renovating the school's main entrance. There are career pathways and specific programs like nursing to welding. The diversity is almost nonexistent, most of the student population is Hispanic. The school is well protected by security guards appointed at almost every hall. The High School is really into football, they hold prep rallies before every home game and those are usually filled with our cheerleaders dancing and fun games. They help with financial aid, hold college conventions, free TSIs testing.

I have lived in San Benito all my life. I have seen the community support each other during times of crisis and seen it grow into what it is today. San Benito High School is a school full of opportunities, friendships and an abundance of knowledge. This district offers many academic opportunities and curricular activities for the students. As a senior of San Benito High School I have received many university acceptances and scholarship offers and for that I am thankful to the college advisory team my high school offers. Although my senior year was cut off short because of the Coronavirus pandemic, I am grateful for every day I spent in school along with my friends and teachers. I believe San Benito High School has taught me key skills that will prepare me for college and has allowed me to develop a deeper understanding of my community and the world around me. The only thing I would change is to bring more university recruiters to present for the seniors to give us more options.
