My experience at San Dimas High School has been a good one so far. I am currently a Freshman and have already faced some milestones with this school; we previously had a lockdown during to a shooting threat(All steps were taken to keep us safe). Also, I am involved in sports as I am participating in San Dimas High School cross country team. All the experiences have molded and shaped me and I cant wait to keep continuing to grow and learn!

I genuinely loved being a student there. A majority of students and teachers are very nice. The environment is very welcoming, and there is always a place for everyone in the school. I loved the variety of classes and clubs they provided, and how teachers will often put in a lot of effort into planning out each and every activity and lesson. They don't just mindlessly repeat words off note cards. They try their best to be interactive and fun. If I ever have any complaints, it's only because they could work on the look of the school. Some parts of the school looks pretty boring, and there are some places that could be more modernized and integrate technology. But it's not really a major issue. Overall I loved being at the school and am glad I was a student there!
Since freshman year, I have gone through 3 different principals. However, Mr. Nance whom is apart of the admins at San Dimas is considered a principle to all the students, he makes you feel welcomed as you walk up the steps. All the office ladies are nice and they always have a smile on their faces. The teachers at San Dimas, for the most part always try to connect with you as a student; as well as always being open to having students in their classroom during study period. The ASB people always try and make the school as spirited as they can, by following all the new trends that occur,
