Students left a bumpy road behind and set out for a second chance at Monterey High School. They credit their teachers with inspiring them to get the credits they needed to graduate

I was interested in this article because it is about a high school in my hometown and I believe strongly that everyone should finish high school and be given a chance to go to college. As it was mentioned in the article, how Monterey High School is known as “the school where the bad kids go,” I have not once even looked at all the positive aspects this school has to offer. Because of its size, a lot of individual attention is offered from teacher to student. When students are given individual attention, they feel important, as if they matter and have a purpose being here. A lot of teens get lost in public high schools due to the fact that there are so many students and limited staff. But at the end of the day, all students want, is to be given a chance to succeed and Monterey has done that for all students who thought they had lost the only chance they were given. This school might be the school where students go when they cannot handle regular high school, but it does not mean they are bad kids. In fact, some students graduate faster than they would have in a regular high school.
I obtained this article from myburbank.com. It is a reliable source because it reports all news that goes on in the city of Burbank.
