Stockdale High School was great experience for me. All those people were amazing and I enjoyed staying over here. I love all the Rally boys and Rally girls dance were excellent. The teachers have excellent service for working with students to help them learn about new things in every subject to be ready in future career goals. Having more curricular programs that students can enjoy playing sports or joining after school clubs was the great idea. I like they included new clubs like Fashion Club, International Club and Kpop Club. Also they included electives as Young Adult Novel and Medical Academy. I glad I’m a Stockdale alumni and didn’t leave this school. I would call it “Once a Mustang! Always a Mustang!”

Overall, my years at Stockdale have been great! I have made many memories here and this place will always have a special place in my heart. The teachers here genuinely care about the students and not just their grades but their well-being as well. The one thing I would change though is the constant pressure to be #1. That goal to be number 1 can cause much stress and competition between students which can be really unhealthy to an extent.
Stockdale High School was an absolutely fantastic experience for me! The teachers, the students, the opportunities, and everything else about the school is nearly perfect. Stockdale has arguably the most academic high school campus in Bakersfield, sending students to some of the most elite colleges including Harvard, MIT, Stanford, USC, UCLA, and many more. I am extremely happy with Stockdale and all of its opportunities and I will forever be grateful for the years I was privileged to attend this school.
