If you allow your children to graduate high school without the ability to read, then you are as disinterested in their education as the teachers, staff and administrators at this school. The mere fact that any educator could or would send a soon-to-be young adult into this highly competitive world with such a handicap, is the epitome of failure. Unfortunately, it's the students that will suffer for the rest of what can only be a described as a dismal life and existence. The next time this administration or staff complains or walks a picket line to protest their never-ending struggle to educate our youth, the public needs to let them and their government know the "true" reason for their all-around failure...greed, a lack of motivation and and in some cases their own ignorance. A genuine educator can teach someone to read or write for FREE! It costs nothing to share your knowledge and teach. The fact that the majority of today's so-called educators see such failure in students is proof of their genuine disinterest and lack of motivation towards their profession. They expect more money, more benefits and more aid for doing less-and-less. They are failing this nations future.

Over paid babysitters. It's sickening to know that I wasted my youth going to this school. I am one of the people that graduated without knowing how to properly read. But if you looked at my grades, I was at the top of my class. I would never send my children to this horrible day care. There are far better schools surrounding this one. Don't send your children here. You have been warned.

As an alumni and now a parent, I love Sebring School district. The teachers really care about the students and their education. Athletics and foreign languages are limited. However, with small class sizes, the teachers are better able to help the students that want helped. I don't feel yu can base your idea of an enitre school district on one bad experience of one student with one teacher. Parents are encouraged to be involved with the school and with their childrens' education

I agree that the teachers are tenured, and not that caring of the students. I totally diagree with the 'tenure' system. It is totally unfair to the students. Many of the teachers a this school do not have a level of education that is acceptable at other schools, and many of them have behaviors that are totally unacceptable, and unprofessional in my opinion. They have limited to non-existent programs when it comes to the Arts, Music, and Sports, except basketball (big deal). I feel that if you just want your child to have a mediocre education, and very limited opportunity in art, music, and sports, compared to other schools, then send them to Sebring. Otherwise consider larger neighboring schools with much more opportunity, and more of the teachers have a higher degree of education themselves.

I know this is a dedicated staff who cares about the students and their academics. Anyone who says that basketball and cheerleading is more important than academics has not spent enough time in this school. Many times, Sebring teachers have gone above and beyond to help their students. My own children have been challenged to excel and seek opportunities such as Destination Imagination,Academic Challenge,and the Chemistry Olympiad. Students have had poems publilshed in national publications, and the school newspaper staff has received numerous awards. Academics seem to be a top priority here. At the same time, I know the dedication and encouragement of the special education teachers keep many at-risk students in school. The staff is dedicated, the administration is dedicated, and the board of education is committed to giving Sebring students all it can.

Excellent, safe, beautiful schools that are the heartbeat of the community. A beuatiful facility and hometown teachers that give personal attention to every student.

I do not believe this to be a professionally operated school. Most of the teachers are here because they are tenured, not because they care about the kids - hard to get accepted into college after going to Sebring HS - they do not focus near enough on academics, they only care about their basketball team. Very limited as to arts, music and other available sports. Parents are only involved if their children play basketball or are cheerleaders. There is also a problem with their acceptance of 'challenged' students. My daughter fared well here, as she was a cheerleader. My son was not welcomed as he has a learning disability that the teachers are not familiar with. The special education director/principal told us to put him elsewhere. He is now in another district and is managing well - mainstreamed. Sebring does not care enough about the quality of their academics.
