I am currently a senior at Yuma High School. This my 4th and last year here. I am very lucky to have came to this school and met all the teachers and staff. I have made many memorable memories with my friends. Whether I am participating in a sport, activity, or even just being class, I always have someone supporting me to do my best!
Review Yuma High School
The many things I liked from Yuma High School was the work environment and class environment. The work/ class environment to me was nice to work in, and I was able to comprehend the information I was learning smoothly. Another thing I liked were the teachers- many of them were very thorough when they taught. Lastly what I very much liked about yuma high school was the student worker opportunities available. I am very thankful for working as a student worker for this school because I was able to save up for college, and learn all in one place. One thing I would not want to see changed is the uniforms because its efficient, and also makes the school as a whole look very uniformed. It also teaches students that no matter what you do in the future you will always be in a uniform.
Well I loved the staff at Yuma High School. The teachers were friendly, funny, caring, and would go out of their way to ensure a student's success. While the counselors and the principal were always happy to help a student in any way they could. However, there were not enough elective classes as I would've liked. I hope that in the future Yuma High School can add more elective classes to give students a bigger variety of classes to choose from. But other tban that, I really enjoyed my time at the school, and hope that more students can enroll there.
