I have been in Socorro High School since my sophomore year, there is multiple things I like from this school. One of them is how Caring and Respectful teachers, and students are respecting Hispanic culture. I am myself Mexican American and I have felt understood and supported by my School to become better each and everyday. I also like the library, which is one of the largest I have ever seen, and the Book club. I think what makes our High School so special is Racism can be found through our country, but here where you come from doesn’t affect how far you can go. However, if I could change something I would create more clubs, have more access to information and tutors since being a new kid was really hard. I believe if I had someone to help me understand how High School worked it would have been a little bit better. Despite saying this I am proud of being a Socorro bulldog and would totally recommend this school.

What I liked about Socorro high school i show much diversity is found there, not only with its students but with the different endorsements that are there as well. I myself am in the Health Professions Academy--HPA-- which helps guide students to their desired career in the medical field. Other endorsements consist of fire technology, cosmetology, culinary arts, and early college. One thing I would be able to change is the amount of opportunity for less fortunate students and allow for them to get more help so they could soon one day get their desired job in life.
I love the diversity in this school and the endless opportunities it provides to students. There are multiple programs that lead to different pathways that any student desires to take. For example, the HPA program is a Health Professions Academy program that is well known by other schools. It includes endorsements such as Medical Assisting, EMT, Pharmacy, and Dental. The education is provided and students have the opportunity to experience clinical rotations in hospitals and other medical facilities. Socorro High School's administration are always encouraging their student to succeed in school.
