    Topic: Overall Experience | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "My overall experience at this school has been well. I believe that there are things I may have done that could make me a little happier, but at the end of the day, students should have no regrets whether they reach their expectation or not. I believe what makes this school unique is how it stay original. I believe that El Segundo High School has had a phenomenal athletic program for students, and in regards to music, Orchestra and Marching Band have taught me a collective focus, which I can say without a doubt, is something I always feel confident about. The high school has by far equipped me with skills I need in the future and the things necessary to take me to the next level, University. It has taught me to be an effective writer and communicator, and I believe that it is okay for the simple reason that High Schools should emphasize on dreaming. In my opinion, I feel as though high schools do not emphasize the role that developing a collective future is more important than grades. For a simple reason, a collective focus instills hope that students can succeed and that grades do not really matter in the long run, rather the way you approach it and succeed in it. High schools, in my opinion, are so worried about grades and they never can show students why to be worried. I believe high schools should inspire each student by showing them that they can actually be something. Grades alone do not determine a student, rather there ability to make connections and look from a positive view."

    "The academics have, in my opinion, been a rollercoaster for me. In other words, a very indescive experience. The teachers have shown a vast amount of knowledge, and the scheduling process revoleves around the choices a student makes ultimately. In regards to curriculumk, I personally feel that it has been outdated. One example is how some books have been the same books my parents have used there highschool year. I believe curriculum is crucial to a student and is something that students should understand from a modern perspective. Books that are from 1990 to 2010 differ massively. T"

    "El Segundo High School has amazing athletics. Football games are unconscious what El Segundo revolves around. The teachers at the school maintain there level of knowledge and experience for the most part. However, the mathematics department really needs more effective strategies. When studying geometry my sophomore year, I felt as though the teachers stopped engaging with students with geometry in specific. On the other hand, the school has major advantages. The Career Day (specifically freshman year) served as a meaningful experience to my major. There are things that need improvement in the school, but ultimately the academics lies within the individual and whether they choose to succeed or not."
    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "Personally, the social scene at this school is significantly mutual with every race and gender. Ironically, El Segundo has been known for its racial community, however the overall school is actually very diverse in my opinion. In addition, I believe that ESHS is a high school that revolves around your own dream and goals to pursue. Acceptance and challenges to any type of ethnic/racial diversity and sexual orientation are not important. ESHS is a high school that can care less about what you are and more what you do. The high school itself is a choice to succeed or fail. ESHS, in my opinion, has no problem with its diversity on its campus. Being Hispanic American, I feel that I have been accepted by all the ethnic and racial groups present at the school. Although I may not be aware of any racial issues, I believe that ESHS is going in the right direction in regards to diversity, and the school itself always has room for improvement as long as prejudice starts to change and diminish in the minds of students, teachers, and families."

    "Majority of the performing arts teachers are outstanding, and a good majority of the teachers in honors/AP classes are as well. Even if my teacher could not teach to my preference, they were always trying to keep students engaged and always readily available."
