My high school years were not one to brag about. I am on a award winning drill team and many different extraciriculars while maintaining a 3.7 GPA. This may seem to be a great experience, however, In 2018, the end of my sophmore year, a fellow student decided to bring wepons into school and end the lives of eight students and two belovid teachers. SInce that day, I have lived over eight hours of my day in what seems to be prison. My parents can no longer come to many of the fun events we had my freshman year. Because of that day, we have metal detectors and officers everywhere, a constant reminder of what happened that day. Believe me, I will never forget my teachers, friends and classmates that were lost that day! However, isn't it time for those of us that are still there to be able to enjoy our high school years? Isn't it time to be proud of things we have accomplished and not always have it tarnished by the reminder of the act of one individual??

Currently, Santa Fe is working hard to change since the incident that happened two years ago. That hard work has paid off in a lot of ways, but has driven a divide in most student-teacher bonds. It lessens the quality of education. However, given time, eventually everything should improve and even out. For now however, this is the score I'll give them.
Santa Fe high school as a whole is not very good. As a student that is about to be in my third year of high school with Santa Fe, i must say that there are a lot of things to be worked on and improved. I have been a student here for most of my education and i can tell you first hand that the quality of the academics, teachers, and administration is rapidly declining. While attending this high school i have never once felt welcomed to talk to counselors or teachers about the things such as my grades, classes, or personal things going on in my life.
