I just transferred to this school my senior year, and it has been the best year for me in my high school career. The community here is amazing, the teachers are understanding and respectful. Overall, I've never received as good of grades as I did this semester, because I actually learned! The honors and AP program they offer here are perfect for those who want to go above and beyond with their academics.

From the years I've studied at San Leandro High School, I could say that it was a pretty normal high school experience. It's just that I regret not being more involved than I could have like clubs and volunteer work. Some things that I enjoyed in high school were teachers who were passionate about the subject they were teaching and it really helped me learn. I do not regret joining cross country because it was really nice to run around the neighborhood with friends and relieve any stress, but racing is a different story. The clubs that I got involved in were great because it was really straightforward on what was happening and I could easily volunteer to help at events around my community. Something I wish would have changed is that the high school would actually prepare us for the future; I didn't benefit from anything about adulthood like knowing how to do taxes, understanding which college is best for my interest which leads to knowing what I want to do in the future.
San Leandro high school is a very safe, diverse and resourceful school, with over 2000 students. I like San Leandro high school because of it's many classes you can take, it's sports, and the help I get with my academics. San Leandro high school has classes from computer sciences to medicine and to even hand to hand auto tech classes available even to sophmores. One of my favorite classes at San Leandro high school is computer science, were I learned to code, make websites, learned languages such as HTML, CSS, and even JavaScript on my first year. Even with obstacles like the Corona Virus San Leandro High School teachers continue to be as supportive and helpful as possible towards me and my peers.
