    Teachers: For the most part, the teacher I had at Del Campo were all wonderful. Don't get me wrong, I had a few whom I just didn't see eye to eye with. Over all however, I enjoyed most of them. My sophomore honors English teacher is still to this day the best teach I have ever had. She was something else let me tell you. She found a way to reach out to all of us students. The projects she had us do were not only engaging but they made us think on a deeper level. I learned a lot in her class, not just on grammar and spelling, but about myself. She was always willing to help outside of class and always got to school early to help anyone before class. Her door was always wide open to every student at our school. Not only was she teaching two sophomore honors English classes and a senior English class, but she was also the hip hop team advisor. That's right, my sassy and wonderful teacher rocked the hip hop team. She retired just last year sadly. Many of us older student who had her, still feel the slight stab in the heart when we see her old room.

    Extracurriculars: Del Campo has a club for just about every subject matter you could want. We have about 70 clubs total on our campus. Our clubs range from interests such as poetry, anime, and current affairs & history. If one wanted to be apart of a more physical team they could join on of the many sports teams we have representing Del Campo. Want to give back to the community? Great! Join Kids Helping Kids Sacramento, the largest nonprofit student run organization in the area. We also have an anti-bulling club that works to bring the school closer together by eliminating hate. This year on Valentines day, they handed out hand made hearts with a special message on them to every student. That's right, you heard me- EVERY student. I would give my school a perfect score if it were not for one thing, money. Just like every public school now a days, money and funding has become an issue. Most clubs have to raise their own money through selling some frozen, baked good or whatever strange object they think we can shove down our family member throats. These fundraisers work yes, but I'm not sure how many boxes of cookie cough I can ask my grandma to buy every year. With all the budget cuts, sports teams do not always have the sufficient equipment they need, art clubs and programs are being cut for their "lack of importance." Del Campo has a ton of clubs and that makes me very thankful I spent my four years here because it gave me the opportunities to try new things, meet new friends, and discover my own interest.

    Food: There is a good variety of food in the cafeteria. We also have plenty of snack bars to go to too. I don't buy lunch from school because I like to bring it from home. The prices I think are too much for just one meal.

    Administration & Policies: When it comes to dress code, teachers as well as other administrators don't do a great job of enforcing the rules. They won't really say anything to you unless you are in a classroom and sometimes not even then. If they have a dress code, they should really stick to it otherwise students won't take it seriously. The dress code is basically a joke. I only know of a few teachers who actually enforce the dress code.

    Sports & Fitness: Many of the students at school are very much involved in sports. The sports at my school come in a huge variety which benefits all kinds of students. Most of the kids love to play even though it may not have the best reputation of being the best team in the district. They usually have nice things to say until they bring up with drama between team members.
