Throughout high school my academics have been encouraged continuously. My school takes high initiative in providing opportunities for it's low income community's students to strive for and achieve success. If it wasn't for my school's amazing faculty and Advanced Placement curriculum, I would not have became the academically competent and strong individual I am today. The school itself, although it has a bad reputation for being ghetto, is one of the best schools a person developing into adulthood can attend.

UC Davis is definitely a great school. It's location has good neighborhoods and has a really good vibe and environment. I can tell many people care for their city. This school is filled with open minded and friendly people. The education system is also great. There's always help when you need it. I think the reason why I wouldn't rate it the best is because of my personal likings. I knew about Davis and been around there since I was a little girl. I didn't live in Davis but I had family who attended Davis before I did. So I guess I wanted new experiences and sights which would bring me to much more excitement. Other than that, Davis is awesome! Go Ags!

The academics at Grant are challenging yet an advantage. Students aren't just given the privilege to take various advanced classes but they're also offered after school tutoring if they have trouble learning the material. Just like students are able to give their effort when it comes to managing doing homework, playing sports, and even working outside of school, teachers do their part by putting in extra of their time to make sure their students succeed.
