Every school of course has its flaws, but Yosemite has been nothing but good to me. The teachers are all very kind and compassionate toward their students. Each and every student at Yosemite High has a place where they can be themselves. The students don't have many conflicts together and bullying is not a problem. The teachers are always good humored and eager to help anyone who needs it. Yosemite loves the fine arts and of course, sports. For such a small school, a wide range of IB classes are available and counselors try to prepare students as much as possible. A wonderful thing about this school is their clubs! There is something for everyone. I specifically enjoy the Women's Club and the Leos Club. I am so grateful to attend Yosemite High School!

Currently all of the good teachers are either leaving or retiring. It always seems like there’s a war going on, either between the teachers and administrators or the students and administrators. Although not all of the administrators are awful, some of them genuinely try their best. Although this school has going through so many people in important positions constantly leaving and needing to be replaced, it’s very difficult for it to actually be good. For academics you are either in the classes that are for extremely intelligent people, and if you can’t handle that then you’re in classes for people that usually don’t care about their grades. There’s no in between for academics.
I loved the campus. There are a limited number of teachers; if you want to switch to a different class, you will have to get an entirely different schedule. The students are hard to control and the student population is often punished for what an individual student does. For example, during my Junior year, the bathrooms were always locked at lunchtime because a freshman student set a toilet on fire. This was very inconvenient, as you lose class time when you have to leave to go to the bathroom. The buildings are extremely old and are in need of repair; unfortunately, there is not enough funding to refurbish the buildings, so the foundations continue to crumble. The only redeeming factors are the teachers, who are extremely friendly and do their best to teach the students, and the AP and IB programs. Another issue, that I will briefly mention, is the mismanagement of money that is meant for the school, and the school counselors have absolutely no idea what they are doing.
