My experience at Santa Maria High school was great, I got to meet a great amount of new friends. And also a good amount of teachers that were there to support me there my academics. So of the things that I would like to see change are the privileges that were given to seniors until my senior year that were taken from us to be given back, those privileges were something that you looked forward to being a senior.

What I like about Santa Maria High is that the teachers are very helpful and very polite. There is a huge amount of clubs and sports you can join. There is also many activities that we have for example spirit weeks and rallies. There is a mixture of students races so your very accepted here.

It's about the same as any other regular high school in California.
