Student, San Marcos High School, Class of 2016,
I would recommend attending San Marcos High School, because it is unique and offers a lot of choices and variety. Not only will you see a diverse student population, but SMHS also has what you would call a "block lunch" which gives students an entire hour to eat lunch and attend a club, organization or interest group. This allows students who don't have the luxury of being able to stay after to school, the opportunity to be involved. SMHS also offers a variety of programs and classes that will be beneficial to students once they graduate. For example, they offer CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) Pharmacology, and Cosmetology. These classes allow students to test and gain certification, which would allow them to work in the real world in the chosen setting. SMHS also offers rigorous course work that will definitely prepare you for college. One of my favorite things about SMHS is the wonderful college and career center we have, that does a fabulous job of preparing the students for college. SMHS is a school full of school spirit, opportunities, and academic excellence. Go Rattlers!
