    "The staff at Robert Vela are very experienced and are not afraid to help a student in need, from the custodians to the cafeteria staff, there is not one student who does not get attention from the staff. The teachers are great in and outside of the classroom. They work with every students schedule for tutoring and they make the class fun in the hour they get a day. The ensure that every student knows what is going on in the class before test time comes around. Even teachers who aren't a students assigned teacher, stay and tutor that student. The teachers at Robert Vela just want us to exceed and be a successful campus, in which I think we met that goal. On aside from just teaching, the teachers build a bond and relationship with their students that last throughout the students years in high school to even when the student is in college. Our school is one big family."

    "I just believe sometimes parents do put a lot of pressure on their kids for good grades, it's good until a certain point. I also believe teachers should be more open and not have favoritism."
