Sterling Heights Senior H.S. 1

I graduated from SHHS with a 3.8 GPA and honors and am currently attending Michigan State. I continue to do well in my studies. However, I can whole-heartedly and without a doubt say that none of my collegiate accomplishments can be attributed to the pathetic excuse for an education that I received here. I did well in my AP classes in order to bring as much knowledge with me to college as possible. The teachers failed to help me achieve this. I came to college confident of my ability, and for the last three years, it has become clearer and clearer of the simple things I find myself struggling with that all students around me gained from high school. Most notably, a proper history education and the ability to conduct formal research. AND the arithmetic sector of this high school--my AP calc class was basically a sham, with a teacher who had no right (moreso ability) to teach it. There are teachers, few and far between, who are knowledgable and generous with their time/ability to teach; but the lot is lazy and presumes "eh, most of the students are entering the workforce or Macomb Community anyhow, who cares." It is sad, and I should have transferred after freshman year.

We all know some people will complain about everything. But all I've seen is so far so good.

My son is a 4.0 student. I find some (english, history) teachers just don't care. Good principal, good band director, good counseling staff, lots of class choices. He's getting a good education & is happy.

SHHS has an amazing band program. The marching band sounds great, and so do the other bands.

My son attends SHHS. School is what you make of it. He has decided to get involved in the extra-cirricular activities, and has decided that education is important. There are kids at the school that have no interest in education. For those children, they will get out of it as much as they put into it. If they put effort into it, the staff will bend over backwards to help them succeed.

I Graduated from Sterling Heights High School in 2005 and i can't tell you how much i miss attending. The educatation i recieved was not book smarts it was LIFE SKILLS!!! The classes other than english, math etx. that a student took was up to them they allow you to take courses that appeal to you and your future plans. They push skills like presentation, communication, ability to adjust to growing technology. At the end of my carrer at Sterling Heights High School i was at a 3.7 GPA and headed to Oakland University well perpared compared to fellow students attending. I am planning to become active with the school even though i am no longer a student to show my support to the school that done so much for me. Also THE FAMILY i was a part of will stick forever!

My child got an excellent education in this school. Most teachers were very caring and prepared my daughter for the Big 10 college that she attends now.
