Would You Raise A Family In the Bay Area?
Westmont High School is located in the center of Silicon Valley. Although plagued with unaffordable housing and debilitating academic competition, the Bay Area is also regarded as a progressive, diverse, and innovative hub brimming with opportunity.
As Westmont students prepare for the next chapter of their lives as they apply for jobs and colleges, issues of family living and residing question the general welfare of the Silicon Valley. Many students have lived in the Bay Area their entire lives, is it worth going elsewhere?
In this episode of The Sword, hosts Anjali Nayak, Lily Bourne, and Alex Gryciuk dive into the reality of living in the Bay Area and talk to Westmont students Sasya Reddy & Maddon Hoh-Choi and Westmont teacher Liz Jarrett for their perspectives and opinions.
