    Extracurriculars: I was part of the school's junior and senior student council. It allowed me to get to know the students of my year more and helped me to get out of my shell.

    Overall Experience: By far my favorite experiences at this school was my involvement in school's volleyball team. Before joining the volleyball team my sophomore year, I had a few friends here and there but majority of the time, I felt alone. I found it hard for me to meet new friends and it was hard for me to be part of a group because I was shy. However, when trying out for the team, I felt a connection with the other teammates. Once making the team, I felt that I gained a second family at school and made me be more open towards people. We had practices together, football games to attend to, and of course, go through hell week together. All of this helped my become the person I am now. It is no longer difficult for me to meet new people and be open to new ideas.

    Teachers: The teachers are overall great. Since majority of the students come from low income families and first family members to graduate, the teachers most certainly put much emphasis on how important it is for us to graduate and be able to continue our education. I personally had a teacher who kept pushing us to do our best but my best never seemed to reach his high standard. He kept repeating how his way of teaching is a way for us to learn on what to expect when we reach college. His methods of teaching included us, the students, to come in after school or during breaks to "speak" to him to understand certain concepts for the assignments, much like professors with their office hours. At the end I appreciated how hard he made us work for our grade because once we go into our college years, it is all up hill. There is no such thing as an "easy A"in college so why should there be an "easy A" in high school? High school is a preparation for college and I believe he taught students and myself to push our limits and really grasp the concept of any lecture.
