On Resources & Facilities: The school was recently repainted, so it looks much better then it did. It seems like a lot of things are needing to be replaced though. The school is a bit old, but it is still functional and not too hard on the eyes. The theatre needs new audience seating... the chairs are falling apart and many are broken... it lessens the tickets we can sell too!

On Overall Experience: I have fallen in love with everything I committed myself to at Cabrillo: Drama, Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, Madrigals, Musical Theatre, Tennis, Varsity Tennis, asian-american club, NHS, CSF... except Cheerleading (they were a bunch of egotistical narcissists for the most part with exception to maybe a couple people). The instructors/coaches/leaders all know very well what they are doing and are a great example to the students when it comes to having fun no matter what program you are doing. There is a lot of innovative thinking here on campus. It is all up to how much you want to try.

On Health & Safety: The only reason I say it's bad is, well, every time I went to the nurse's office, the nurse was super insensitive to me and my pain and my nauseous spells. I have a disease that affects my gastrointestinal tract, and often times I feel very sick! They must think that every person who goes to the nurse office is faking to skip out on class or things. Also, the nurse is never there during our lunch hours! There have been countless times when I have gone in during lunch after pushing myself to suffer until we are free from class and I can't get the help I need. I am permanently bitter towards the school's nurse's office.

On Administration & Policies: The school is usually on top of it all with the students drama and such, although I'm not too familiar with this cause I'm not an advocate for creating drama outside of the theatre. One of my friends went through a bully problem though her first year. It was actually pretty stupid, this one girl kept getting violent towards my friend and verbally harassing her with no obvious reason... so the office couldn't do much to settle the situation. It's been a couple years now and I haven't heard of any big prpblems, so things must be okay.

On Extracurriculars: I am very involved with the drama department at this school and am almost always participating in after-school rehearsals and such. This department requires a lot of commitment if you wish to get very far with it, but it is totally worth it! The only thing is that it is taxing of your time and you end up struggling to always have your work done for your classes. During musical season, most people drop whole letter grades!
