Posted April 30, 2009

it is a great school and very small the teachers are head on but there are some depressed students there seeking help

I went to Sedan High for just over 5 years, two in the middle school, and dropped out my senior year. After being an above average student at a fantastic christian school, Sedan High is truly awful. Luckily it did not negatively impact my life very much as I took the GED and got an associates degree in my time away from SHS.

Parent involvement-poor. There is no art teacher, one of the two music teachers is gone and the choir director is now also responsible for band. The English teachers are very good and so are the other teachers NO FOREIGN language teacher last that I knew! Sports are limited ut more important than academics/arts. the curriculum is limited and there are definitly a few good teachers but the administration spends money on themselves when they might keep teaching positions (like a band teacher!)
