My experience at Revilla
By James Llanos Jr.
May 11, 2006
I am a former student of Revilla and was on pace to graduate
with about a A- Average and a year early. I decided to drop out
for other personal reasons at the time and later graduated by
My experience at Revilla I feel was much better than going to
K-Hi, it worked for me in many ways. My opinion is the parents
are right, I as a student was treated differently than normal
students of K-Hi. My classmates up to that point shunned me,
adults that I knew looked at me differently and did not talk
to me the same. I as a former student wish I had a prom or was
told or invited, I wish I got to walk with my former classmates.
I do not even get called about class reunions and it does sadden
me at times. I do not regret anything because my past makes me
who I am today. I would however backup and confirm other parents
opinions on how students are treated. For current students who
do not want to walk down the aisle with K-Hi students and assist
in ways with the separation I would tell you to think twice because
you may be ok with it now but you may also regret down the line.
