    Teachers: The teachers at this school were very helpful and engaging. I felt I could always ask for help when needed and I could always count on them to help me understand what I wasn't understanding. The teachers were very knowledgeable about the subjects they taught and also would show interest in helping students learn the material. Teachers were also very consistent in their grading policies and address any issues that students may have been having.

    Overall Experience: I don't have a favorite experience. I would go to class and go home---I wasn't involved in other school activities that much. I had no choice but to attend this school as it was the one my parents chose for me when we moved to Moreno Valley, but I felt that if I had to do this all again, I'd have to choose this school. I regret that earning straight A's was so easy and I wasn't challenged, but I also wonder if I would still have been accepted to UCLA if I hadn't had those grades, and that school.

    Teachers: The teachers I had were wonderful. They were engaging and knowledgeable about their fields. However, I didn't find their classes to be particularly challenging. The courses were interesting and met up to the standards for the grade, but I felt they didn't push me the way my teachers at another school had.
