My child recently enrolled into Ponderosa after a family move, and although Ponderosa may be one of the best schools in the state, it don't compare to my daughter's pervious school. Because she is a senior and must take many required-for-graduation courses, her schedule is not as challenging as it has been the past 3 years. Ponderosa does not offer very many honors or multi-level classes, and she must attend class with students with lower ability. she has expressed her extreme unhappiness at being at such a school.
I have had a wonderful experience at Ponderosa. I have been challenged in my AP classes and have been very involoved in athletics and activities. Ponderosa has a very strong athletic and activities department which contributes greatly to the success of its students. As with all schools Ponderosa is not without its problems, but the administration is aware and working hard to correct the very few descrepancies.
