Santiago High School Reviews

Santiago high school is a well-developed school for the CNUSD school district. The negatives of the school can vary from student to student; personally, Santiago could use some improvements. The bathrooms are missing mirrors, the campus is covered in black gum dots, and the buildings are faded and musty. The teachers are highly educated yet a vast majority lack the necessary teaching skills which are needed to run a class. The staff at the school is constantly changing, causing a lack of order in many aspects of the school. There are many positives to Santiago, mainly with its nonacademic programs. The arts are fantastic with consistent and massive wins throughout the year. The athletics also contribute to this with several CIF winning teams and the rest close to it; however, Santiago seems to consistently struggle with the aspect of football. Overall the school is top ranking in many ways but struggles with the basic nessecities.
Overall, I love this school. What makes Santiago stand out above the waves, is the way it tries determinedly sets up a activities and events that makes the long year of school less stressful. These events include a bimonthly entertaining and informative school show called "The Bite," halftime show performances during football games, spontaneous music or performances in the quad, planned dances, rallies, and of course, senior events which include Senior Sunrise, and grad night. The one thing about this school that could need improvements on in the future would be the efficiency and kindness of the schools counselors and workers in the offices.
My experience at Santiago High School has been one that I will forever remember. This is not only because of the teaching staff, AP’s and counseling but because of the troposphere that surrounds the school. I have made some of my best friends at the school due to all of the extra curricular activities that the school offers. A change in the school that I would like to see is more dances or activities that would allow the individual grade levels to be able to create more of a bond so that by senior year, there would be an amazing chemistry between the students.
