  1. Sir Francis Drake High School

    • Tamalpais Union High School District, CA
    • 9-12
    • 213

    High School Sophomore: Drake has a really great and open atmosphere. When you first start school and see how things are run you can see that most teachers and students are accepting of who you are, especially if you are from the LGBT+ community. We have bathrooms that are open for boys or girls to use if they identify as a boy or girl, which is probably very appreciative for those students. Drake also has SLC which are small learning communities. The communities are really heavily project based, one is based on the arts and drama, and the others are based on sciences, history, and current word problems. But they really help you improve your writing skills and public speaking skills because during each project we learn new writing tactics to help persuade our audience or to make them really feel as we present our current projects. The counselors are really a big help as well with your education or your personal life. They are always there to talk. I would definitely choose Drake again because even though I've faced a lot of challenges with my education and personal life, I always had friends and my counselor to really help me when I needed them. Drake and the teachers are making me the person I'll be when I head off to college. Its help making me who I will be and that is definitely someone i'm going to like.
