Life at Santa Barbara High: Time in the Classroom

Celeste Del Rose describes her first year at Santa Barbara High School.

What I think about Santa Barbara High School so far is it’s gonna be a lot work but, of course, we all have to make it through one way or another.


My classes are very far apart and since I’m such a small person, it takes a lot of walking to get to each of them on time. There are so many people at this school it’s amazing to me; it’s so different. The one thing that kinda gets at me is the fact that I get my foot stepped on way too much.

My teachers are all very interesting to me. They all have their own way of doing things, such as turning in papers to, even going to the restroom. So many things to remember. I haven’t had any trouble with my teachers — well, so far — but my grades haven’t been so great. That’s the bad thing. My schedule has been very twisted. I have changed basically all of my classes between two-four times just in the beginning months, so catching up has been very hard.

In conclusion, I’m quite happy at this school and proud to be a Don. The people have their good sides, so I’m not too worried about them. The classes are hard but eventually we get used to it. No matter how I explain it, it’s overall a wonderful school.

Celeste Del Rose is a freshman at Santa Barbara High.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
