The San Diego High School of Business and Leadership is a really unique and diverse school. This high school provides a lot of programs and help. I can say that an academy that has the most impact in this school is the “Academy Of Finance” this academy has instructors who push their students to the limit by encouraging them to take really advance classes that can prepare you for college some classes are “ AP Literature” and “Microeconomics”.
What I loved about San Diego High School were the teachers. Even though some teachers were getting laid off because of short funds they did not stop caring about us. They made it clear that not only was it their job to help us learn and educate us but to also take the time to get to know us as individuals. The resources we had regarding college prep were not the best but students were taught equally and fair. One thing I would like to improve for future generations would be better resources and information regarding other life subjects such as college readiness.
