    "The only thing I will cherish from my high school is that it was an open campus and the upper class men were able to go off campus for lunch. And there are a dew teachers and office adminisyratora that I will miss."

    "The glorious Bakersfield High School. This school is history, built in 1893 and still standing in 2016. I can honestly say I am honored to be apart of this legacy. I will focus this review on the football legacy, one of the greatest experiences I have lived through. It was my freshmen year at Bakersfield High and that was the year in which our football team made it to the CIF Division 1 state finals. Four rooter buses were rented for the event which took place at the Home Depot Center at Cal State Dominguez Hills in Carson. As soon as kickoff took place all I could hear were our famous "driller" chants, all I could see was the crowd bleeding blue and white, and all I could feel was the rush and excitement for my team to win. The driller crowd participated in the countdown and when the clock hit 0 seconds complete chaos. Screams, shrieks, hugs, kisses, everything--we made it, no, we did it. I would do anything to experience that adrenaline again. I will soon graduate BHS saying i was apart of the legacy and tradition. And no other school have what we do. Legacy and tradition."

    "Some try, others don't and when they don't, they expect the students to put in their effort as well as the teachers."

    "The teachers at this school obtain college professor like qualities. They strive to make the course as rigorous as possible while still maintaining the capability of successfully passing the course. For instance I have had the same math teacher for three years. She is the "gate/honors" coordinator, and with that being said she instructs the courses: Gate Geometry, Advanced Algebra two and Pre-Calculus-- all of which I have taken. Through this classes we adapted a certain learning style and routine which consists of answering our peers' questions through the whiteboard, seeking further guidance with our questions (teacher steps in), and beginning the lecture and notes through the teacher. This routine exposed us to a college- like atmosphere, for I have observed a college classroom function while participating in the class named AVID and able to validate the correlation between my teacher's style and college classroom. On the terms of math, freshmen year I had a teacher who served at our school for approximately 25-30 years and she had just retired this recent month; therefore our staff is quite experienced and knowledgeable for they have participated in the growth of the Bakersfield High School student academic performance. With that being said, I would conclude this review by saying the Bakersfield High School staff is one like no other. A staff which consists of big hearts, friendly and caring personalities, humorous attitudes, and the greatest of all faith and hope. The staff here at Bakersfield high takes each student (freshmen-year to senior year) and nurtures them and helps them grow through hope and faith. In my time here at Bakersfield High I wanted to quit in some of the challenging courses but through our amazing staff I was implicitly told to take the path less traveled, in other words to never give up. I am about to be a senior at Bakersfield high and I can honestly say leaving this staff will be a great obstacle to overcome. We are family."

    "Coming into Bakersfield High was very new and frightening. I didn't know anyone as well as it was the biggest campus in Bakersfield, CA. Although I was scared, the teachers and students were very friendly and have made my high school experience the best. I have had many teachers over the years and Bakersfield High in Bakersfield, CA has to have some of the best teachers. These teachers have taught me great writing and math skills and I have honestly learned a lot in the past three years. I've learned and mastered how to write an introduction paragraph as well as a whole figurative language essay; likewise, I have learned and mastered how to write and solve logarithms and special right triangles. So, I can honestly say that each year I have become stronger in each subject, which is only possible from my amazing teachers."
