(I am also not a parent, but a previous student.) I am proud to graduate from Sierra Vista High School and I will tell that to anyone who asks me about my high school experience because it offered many opportunities and I took those opportunities. As opposed to the majority of students who say that the school is 'ghetto' or 'boring' they are wrong. The reason for this is because they never got involved. In any school, the majority of the students who don't like their school never got involved. In Sierra Vista there are many sports, a wide array of clubs, and programs offered. There can't be something that a student can't do and if they don't have an interest in the set clubs, they have the opportunity to make their own club, such as what the Yu-Gi-Oh club. Furthermore, some students compare our school to other 'better' schools. The reason for this is because we are in a different community, so we have different situations and different problems to face. Overall, Sierra Vista has been improving and that's what counts. Many students are starting to get involved and loving it. That's what makes a high school experience fun. Some of my friends were in colorguard, swimming, basketball, wrestling, Key Club, ASB, MeCha, to name a few. On the academic level, many teachers stay after school to help out anyone in need. Career Counseling is also offered. The mistake of some students is not going out there to take advantage of the school.
