    Extracurriculars: The clubs at my school are extended to all and there is something for everyone who wants to be involved. We have many clubs available such as AVID club, robotics, and many more. However the club that I am most involved with is JSA which I am a proud officer in. The level of commitment for our clubs, I would say is very high, speaking from the standpoint of my club, we are the largest JSA chapter in the state of Arizona and participate the most JSA oriented activities. I believe that this is true about the rest of the clubs and extracurricular activities that are offered at my school.

    Overall Experience: The reason I would never go back and change my mind about attending this school is because I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. This school has become a second home to me and has left me with many experiences that will be with me for the rest of my life. I have been apart of my school's football program since I started my high school career. Being apart of this program has changed my life completely, I don't know what i would have done without football, it has taught me lessons that I apply on the field and as well as my life in general. What makes my school unique though is the amount of new people I've met over the last three years, my school (Kofa) has students coming from the city it is in, Yuma, AZ, and a small neighboring town, Somerton, AZ.

    Teachers: The teachers at Kofa High School are helpful and engaging. Most of the teachers will help their students, even outside of classroom. I have personally been given help by many of my teachers after class when I needed them. Most faculty members at my school I can confidentaly say are very knowledge in what they teach, and are know a great deal about their topic. The teachers at my school tend to connect to their students on a more personal level and want them to strive for greatness in their future endeavors, and vice versa. These adult role models have been chosen for us to learn from because they were sought out to be the best available. The grading system is very consistent around the board for most teachers at Kofa High School. But none the less, I can say with great confidence that they have helped me improve my skills, curricular wise and life wise, over the last three years.
