    "This is mainly based on how much the individual wants to succeed. If they are willing to push, the school offers the courses a student make take."

    "There is a variety of classes offered at this school, however it's difficult to change them especially AP classes. It's become harder to switch classes because of the large number of students now attending Santa Clara High, but I do wish it were somehow manageable to switch out of AP classes since it's very rare when counselors allow you to drop a class."

    "Academics at this school are decent in the sense that it depends on what teacher you have. Usually we have 2-3 teaches teaching the same class throughout the day so depending on which teacher basically tells you how the rest of your year will be in that class. The scheduling process can often be infuriating because we need more counselors and classes are usually already full so there's no way of getting into that class that you may have needed. The workload is time consuming because teachers do not accommodate for students with sports every night and don't have time like other students. Teachers also assign homework based on their class and not thinking of how much other homework students have already recieved."

    "I really enjoy the environment and the extracurriculars that they offer here. It seems like people genuinely want to learn and try hard, all while having fun and enjoying the high school experience. A trend at this school is the sheer amount of people who try hard, and the school rewards this. People who have high GPAs and academic excellency are recognized at school rallies, along with people who have improved their GPA. Its an encouraging environment."

    "The only reason that has me hesitant on choosing to come to Santa Clara again would be that my closest friends attend Wilcox High School. However, I have met some great people at Santa Clara that I most likely wouldn't have had the chance to meet and I am grateful for them. I've also become much more open to trying new things such as joining clubs and trying swimming for the first time competitively. This school definitely has a lot of school spirit and many of the students are friendly and welcoming."
