At San Marcos High School, students should be able to be open minded, kind, and studious students, otherwise the student will not succeed. The student should have these characteristics because they need to be able to listen to teachers or they will fail the class.

The type of student that I see going to my high school is a friend. Although we all don't know each other, I have experienced many random acts of kindness from students whose names I didn't even know. Students that come to San Marcos need to be resilient as well, high school is difficult and this is a time in our lives that comes with many difficulties and setbacks. However, the students here are strong and always seem to overcome the most extreme of obstacles, either by themselves or the with the help of their peers. The final and most important attribute that I see in a San Marcos High School student is potential. I can see it in everyone in the classrooms, the halls, across the quad, and because the students we have here are so extraordinary, there is not trouble unlocking that potential. Whether we have received help from a friend or got up off our backs on our own, we at San Marcos High School are already successful, and have been ever since we walked through the gates.

A student who should attend San Marcos High School is a student who has what we call "knight pride". This "knight pride" is a blend of school spirit, respect for others, and the ability to try his/her best in activities the student applies himself/herself to. Students like this make the atmosphere at our school positive and high achieving. If a student wants to apply and challenge themselves both academically and extracurricularly, San Marcos is the place to do so. Not only does our school have excellent teachers that push us academically, but we have a wide variety of sports reaching the CIF, California Interscholastic Federation, and even state level competitions.

The student who attends San Marcos High School is one that wants to what is necessary to attend to a college. This student does not feel the need to participate in the private/charter school systems because this student, like myself, believes that the public school system is superior in terms of preparing the attendants for the real world and college life as well as introducing the young person to a larger variety of different cultures and social aspects. San Marcos requires each student with the knowledge required to attend college, and at this specific high school there are students from all parts of the world that speak many languages and hold differing beliefs. The student who would attend San Marcos is one willing to learn of multiple aspects of society, from both teachers and the environment, and doesn't feel the necessity to attend some high end school that in reality offers very little.
