My son attends this school. He makes very good grades, but he thinks some classes are made too easy by teachers. He has had some excellent teachers and hasn't had any complaints about any of them. He gets annoyed with a lot of the students because they don't want to pay attention in class, misbehave, get in fights, etc...but that is really the only negative. The orchestra program is awesome and the facility is very nice. My only negative comment is that some of the front office staff is less than friendly, like they are doing you a favor to help you. Overall, a good school.
The teachers in this school are the greatest that my children have ever experienced! I give my highest kudos to Mrs. Mary Robinson in the Math Dept. I know without a doubt that any students that attend any of her classes will have a 'Most Improved' year!
All of the bad reviews are lies SCHS is a very good school I am a freshman and I thought I was gonna get bullied but no people are very friendly and will help you yes there is fights what school doesnt have fights. But its not as bad as people say
I am a current student at SCHS, and have been here since my freshman year (3 school years) and from my experience at many previous schools my opinion of this school is sorely lacking. Although the school is coming along on its 7th(?) year of operation, teachers dissapear from one year to the next and nothing is ever permanent. The once state of the art technology is becoming out-dated for the current day and age. Only the few business and technology teachers have newer computers/technology. Students apathy is enormous, especially from the freshman/sophomores. The behavior problem comes from students getting into fights over trival things, like a pair of shoes for example. Fights happen on almost a weekly basis. The curriculum, for most, is either very difficult or very easy. It is one of the worst schools (behavior wise and technology wise) of the 9 schools I have attended.
My daughter attended for 4 months after we moved into the area and we have decided to home school. The teachers don't maintain control of their classrooms and the administration was very difficult to work with. The freshman team were far from friendly.
This was my daughters first year at SCHS. Overall I think the school is a good one. One downfall I feel is how strict they are on students. I know there needs to be a certain amount of discipline but, they are students, not convicted criminals. Its supposed to be school and not the state max security prison. My tour in the Marines was less strict then SCHS is.
