Sycamore is probably the best fit for your child. All the comments that say the teachers are unhelpful, are extremely false. I am a current student of Sycamore Junior High. They give out extensive activities. Not just for sports, but for music they have SSC (Sycamore Singing Company) which is a show choir that is amazing. They have clubs such as BSU (Black Student Union) where you can learn about African American History more extensively. The activities help kids with social interaction and its amazing! No matter what you are interested in there is a spot for you at Sycamore! I suggest if you're moving somewhere in Cincinnati, then I suggest you move to Sycamore District.
We are so incredibly fortunate that our daughter is in the Sycamore School District. She currently attends the Junior High and LOVES it. Sycamore has incredible teachers and administration. Before our family moved to Cincinnati 6 years ago, I made a few calls to try to determine which district would be best for our child - Sycamore was at the top of the list. We visited the elementary school she went on to attend, Montgomery, and were thrilled about this opportunity for her. She is thriving academically, socially and emotionally, thanks to all! We aren't equally impressed with Cincinnati, but would not even consider relocating until after our daughter has completed her Sycamore experience.
SJH has a wide range of activities for all students...sports and clubs of a vide variety. The Sycamore school distrist is in direct competition with many of the local schools for both atheltics and academics. They are doing a very excellent job keeping up with the competition and will most likely continue to do so in the coming years!
This school is an excellent transition school, helping students make the big move from middle school to high school.There are great courses available, including semester and quarter courses to help students find their interests, so that they can continue with those in high school. There are also a wide range of clubs and actitivites to join, and the school prides itself on having 'something for everyone.'From Science Club to Latin Club to Beta Club,and from Cross Country to Quiz Team to Wrestlerettes, SJH has it all.The art program is also very good; seventh graders are required to take a semester of art, and if they display a talent or enthusiasm for art, are recommended to continue to Art 8.In the music department, Band, Chorus, Orchestra, Piano, Guitar, and Music History are just a few of the music options.They do not have to play an instrument, but can take an academic music course.
