I'm a really proud graduate of Compton High.Ok, I'm not going to sit here and yap about how the school's in great condition or make anything up like that. Let me break it down with the facts. Yes, the school is underfunded. Yes, there are fights almost everyday. Yes, a lot of teachers don't care about what they're doing. Yes, half the students barely care to graduate. All these conceptions about CHS are completely true. All that said, I think if you make it out of CHS and get into a good college, you are blessed. I can not possibly get distracted now that I'm in college. There're kids in my college from richer areas, and they easily get distracted. They're taking drugs, drinking, etc. But I'm a CHS graduate. I managed to stick to academics in high school, and nothing can stop me. I stood out at CHS since I never drank or smoked. I was literally the only one in my friend group who didn't smoke or drink every weekend, and my friend group was relatively sober for only smoking/drinking on the weekends. If you can keep a good mindset throughout your time at CHS, you're set.I think one thing the school could do differently would be to have higher requirements for seeing famous visitors. There should at least be a 2.5 gpa requirement to see them when they come. I had a higher gpa than almost anyone else in my graduating class did, but I had to literally chase Becky G in the parking lot to get a picture with her when she came to visit. If there had been a minimum gpa requirement to see her, there would have 1) been more incentive to do better in classes, and 2) been a lot more intimacy in the gym where she actually came to perform that day.

I love my school and proud to say I GRADUATED from Compton High! And those who are ashamed of being from Compton High should be ashamed of themselves because Compton high is not the best school, but it did its best!
