  • Apparently, judging by the postings in this area, the teachers are not doing a very good job teaching grammar and spelling at your school.

    And if the flag was placed up there by students from another high school, why don't you take it down and fix it? Are you lazy? Now you are just filling in the stereotypes of your (...) from your own actions.

    Do something about it. It's at YOUR school so YOU are the ones responsible for how YOUR school is viewed, regardless of if someone else did it or not.

  • First of all, to make this crystal clear to everyone, the students of this high school had no involvement in the 'flag' incident, and the teachers and administrators of this school are great. In addition, there are many inspiring and motivating teachers at this school, for examlpe the U.S. history teacher Mr. Angulo, who has inspired many of us to stride for a better education with his own efforts he made and challenges he overcame at our age.

  • Clearly, this school has one of the best high school water polo teams I have ever seen so far, and for that I congratulate them. They have won the Division III CIF Southern Section Championship, and believe me when I tell u this it was no easy feat to accomplish.
