Santa Cruz is an average school, I feel we don’t have much resources, but they try to use the little we do have as best as possible. My experience has been great, I have experienced many traditional high school things like going to games, volunteering, and showing school pride, things like that.

Being in Eloy since I was a little girl, Santa Cruz has been a huge part of my life. Not only because it will be the school that hands me my diploma, but because the experience rewarded me with a sense of responsibility and guidance towards a new chapter in my life. I was given the opportunity to flourish in a community that supported me and the people I have grown up with. The faculty, the staff, the students, they always found a way to make you feel comfortable at Santa Cruz. I know that if I were able to go back in time, even for the slightest second, I wouldn't change any of it.
I still go to Santa Cruz Valley Union High School and it is very average for what a high school is supposed to be like, I suppose. I do like the teachers, some of them are pretty friendly. My school provides with what they can, it’s not a bad experience. I like to hang out with friends and I like to go to math class because I’m really good at math. Saying all this, in conclusion I say Santa Cruz is a pretty average high school.
