Santiago high school is a well-developed school for the CNUSD school district. The negatives of the school can vary from student to student; personally, Santiago could use some improvements. The bathrooms are missing mirrors, the campus is covered in black gum dots, and the buildings are faded and musty. The teachers are highly educated yet a vast majority lack the necessary teaching skills which are needed to run a class. The staff at the school is constantly changing, causing a lack of order in many aspects of the school. There are many positives to Santiago, mainly with its nonacademic programs. The arts are fantastic with consistent and massive wins throughout the year. The athletics also contribute to this with several CIF winning teams and the rest close to it; however, Santiago seems to consistently struggle with the aspect of football. Overall the school is top ranking in many ways but struggles with the basic nessecities.

Overall, I love this school. What makes Santiago stand out above the waves, is the way it tries determinedly sets up a activities and events that makes the long year of school less stressful. These events include a bimonthly entertaining and informative school show called "The Bite," halftime show performances during football games, spontaneous music or performances in the quad, planned dances, rallies, and of course, senior events which include Senior Sunrise, and grad night. The one thing about this school that could need improvements on in the future would be the efficiency and kindness of the schools counselors and workers in the offices.

Even though our school supports both sports and the performing arts, it places an emphasis on sports; the performing arts do not get enough recognition and praise that they deserve while sports are advertised everywhere in the school. Many students do not know enough about band or choir and the competitions they win because the student government hardly spreads the information out to the student body. A few months ago, a staff member came into our government classroom handing out free t-shirts when for every question answered correctly. They were all sports questions: about CIF, which athletes got scholarships for athletics, and the sort. Towards the end, the entire class did not know the answers, and he says something like, "Come guys, you guys should know this! Football is the pride of our school!" It seemed as if band and choir, both organizations at our school who do really well, are not recognized at all. It would be great if both staff and the student government can appreciate the performing arts more and encourage students to take part and keep up with the accomplishments they achieve.
