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!

Although my high school was low-income, it was one of the best high schools ever, because we had so much diversity!
Therefore there were a lot of different clubs and organizations that students could join and we could even make a club if we wanted to. There is band, all sorts of sports (except swimming because the pool broke down),different cultural clubs, community service clubs, the Student Body and etc. The student body was very involved throughout the whole school year. Sometimes it was a little difficult finding a staff to volunteer to be the adviser but sooner or later we found the perfect adviser.

I love my school with all my might! Although there are some students that drives me insane, there are still a thousand reasons why I would come back to this school any day I could. My favorite thing about this school is that almost everyone is extremely out-going, so everyone gets a say on how they feel about something and I think communication is super important! There are varieties of clubs and activities students can involve themselves in and I think the bond at this school is extremely high.
