There are many different types of music; country, hip hop, oldies, pop, indie, punk rock, funk, classical, etc. What kind of music one listens to can depend on what beats they like and what the lyrics mean to them. There is a huge variety of music that high schoolers listen to.
Freshman Victoria Yefremenkov states that she likes hip hop and pop the best. Her favorite artists are Rae Sremmurd, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Bobby Shmurda. She likes the songs No Type by Rae Sremmurd, I Don’t Mind by Usher, This is How We Do by Katy Perry, and Adore You by Miley Cyrus. She likes this music because it energizes her, puts her in a better mood, and gets her “turnt”.
Another student from El Camino who has requested to stay anonymous in fear of being judged for their music taste says, “I listen to country music when I’m alone because all of my friends listen to rap,”. Their favorite artists are; Blake Shelton, Toby Keith, and Lee Brice. Their all time favorite song is God Gave Me You by Blake Shelton. They believe that the words and meanings in country songs are really meaningful and sweet.
Clearly, everyone has their own taste in music. This is especially true in high school because there is a lot of soul searching going on there and people finding themselves. No one should judge or be judged based on what music they listen to.
In El Camino High School’s dress code, there are many things that students feel should or should not be permitted. Certain aspects such as the rule that shoes must be worn at all times are just obvious, but others are considered restricting.
Freshman Kellan Fisch claims that he thinks that muscle tanks should be allowed to be worn at school. “They aren’t inappropriate because I’m not showing anything off.” Fisch doesn’t think there is anything wrong with muscle tanks and doesn’t understand why they are not permitted. However, he does agree with the no sagging rule because he highly dislikes when he sees people doing that.
Multiple girls believe that short shorts should be allowed as long as they cover everything up, but if they barely cover you at all, they should be forbidden. Freshman Jayla Perry states, “Spaghetti straps should be allowed, it gets too hot here to wear t-shirts all the time.” She does not believe that spaghetti straps are too revealing so long as they cover you up and you don’t have excessive cleavage.
Sophomore Danielle Harrison is against the no pajama rule because “When you’re in high school, sometimes all you want to do is sleep so it is easiest to get right out of bed and go to school”. She understands that it isn’t really professional, but why does it need to be? “They’re comfortable and warm and it’s easier to learn when you’re comfortable.”
Clearly, the dress code is pretty reasonable, but there are certain things that the students would like to change about it. Most would agree with these fellow students, but most are also content with how the dress code is now.
