“I don’t like running the mile. I hate running. It’s tiring. When we go to P.E. we have to change. It sucks having to change back into your regular clothes.”
Nelly Quintanilla, 17, Junipero Serra HS (Gardena)
“My teacher makes us do embarrassing things—like dance to workout music—and then laughs at us. It’s more akin to torture than exercise.”
Andrew Chen, 15, Walnut HS
“You need it because they teach you not to eat a lot and how to stay healthy. I think it’s fun because we do a lot of activities that I like. We do soccer, basketball, frisbee.”
Cristian Estrada, 13, Colin Powell Academy for Success (Long Beach)
“P.E. is my favorite period of the day. At home I don’t have time to work out. I love to run and I love the competition. Plus, having a nice teacher makes it better.” 
Juan Bercerra, 16, Chavez Learning Academies (San Fernando)
