    Overall Experience: The only good aspect of this school was the amount of good friends I have made. All the administrators except for Seth Bond did not make the students feel welcome at this school.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers at Santiago High School are fun, engaging, and knowledgeable. Some teachers had a tough time with classroom control, but the overall quality of those teachers are great. Their science department in particular could use a lot of help getting better, as there were only a couple of teachers that really taught the material in a way a normal student could absorb the information that has been given to them. Every other subject on the other hand is top notch because the teachers compare questions in the book with real life examples.

    Extracurriculars: There are a wide variety of clubs and organizations on campus that are specific to everyone's interests. For the most part, the clubs on campus have members that remain extremely commited and simply have a passion for what they are involved in. Club meetings are fun, relatively short and immediately make you feel connected.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience at Santiago High School was pretty great. I was involved in multiple clubs throughout the past four years. I was also apart of an academic program called Skull Island my freshman year and participated in cross country my senior year. I challenged myself by taking numerous honor roll and ap courses, and while it was difficult, I gained an extensive amount of knowledge and feel well prepared for college. Being that this school was so large, I met new people everyday and made lifelong friends who I still remain in contact with. Santiago was an extremely spirited school that always had fun activities and pep rallies going on. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't pick another school. Santiago High School made my experience one to remember.

    Teachers: A majority of teachers at Santiago High School are exceptional, however there are few who are truly passionate about what they do and are willing to go above and beyond to make sure that all of their students are successful in the classroom. Throughout my high school career I've had a handful of good teachers who have students actively engage in the classroom, offer tutoring before and after school, and remain consistent with grading.
