Sonora is a school where students can excell in academics and enjoy their high school expereince in sports and other school realted activities and clubs. The indoor campus has a real family feel and the students are very nice to each other. Very respectful environment for students that starts in the classroom. Great school for all students!

My son is a junior at Sonora High School has had a wonderful experience. What I like most about Sonora is the friendly atmosphere and school spirit combine with challenging academics for core classes. My student is a scholar athlete who has been provided a rigorous yet well-rounded experience here at Sonora. There are many clubs and organizations to be a part of if you are not an athlete. Our ASB is top notch and provides many leadership opportunities for students aspiring to grow in their leadership skills. Other programs that are well known are the FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) program, the FFA (Future Farmers of America) program, the new digital media arts academy and the Best Buds program which provides students the opportunity to work with the special education students at Sonora High School.

I am a student at SOHS, and it is an absolutely extraordinary school!The Ib program is wonderful, and the teachers and staff are the best! sure, our reputation isn't as great as troy and sunny hills, but the honors classes are the same, and are just as rigorous! There isn't as much competition, so it won't be as difficult to get into the college/university of our choice if we do well. Not to mention that its all indoors!!!

I am hoping the school is better than what it appears to turn out. Living near the school is horrible due to the vandalism, loitering, theft of mail (all caught on surveillance) and worst off all bullying of senior citizen who ask these "students" to stop loitering on their property. When speaking to one of these students he advised he was told by staff and resource officer to "hang out in neighborhood and do what he wants as long as he behaves in school" Shameful. This school shoudl eb closed

Sonora is a great school. Sonora may not have the reputation as Troy does, but our school has a friendly environment. the teacher are really nice and so are the people. also the teachers make learning fun and encourage creativity.

I am a current student at SOHS and I think the school is AMAZING. The people are friendly and it is an indoor school (this allows students to block out the high temperatures of the weather). The school academically excells and students are given many options. The IB diploma and AP courses have a perfect balance of difficulty and fun. Learning is made enjoyable at SOHS because everyone is so friendly and kind to each other.

My daughter graduated from Sonora in 2005. She participated in the AVID Program for 4 years and graduated with about a 3.4 average. She also participated in athletics and other clubs and programs. Most of the teachers were very good and the AVID Program instructors were excellent. They truly cared about their students and believed in their program. As a result, my daughter received a well rounded education and social experience. Upon graduation she elected to attend a University located in another State. She has excelled in her program and will complete her double major studies in 3.5 years and has made the Dean's List several times. The education and overall experience that she received at Sonora prepared her for success at her university level. What more can a parent ask for?
