I am not familiar with this school. However, I do know Chris Brewster. And I hold him in the highest regards. I am blessed to have had him for the four years of my high school career at Capitol Hill. He is an amazing teacher, leader and man.
I am a freshman,and i went to this school for 1 semester (i went to the middle school all three years).there were some teachers that were new and enthusiastic about teaching,and there are also some teachers that don't deserve to be there.This school could become so much better,if only they had the funds for it. The athletic department was decent,and is still improving. I have friends here that I knew since middle school, and tell me good things that are happening there.There are very intelligent people there,but they only offer about 2 AP courses.What this school lacks, they improve every year.
I graduated from Santa Fe South in 2005. I was one of the many teenage mothers that attended the ALPHA Program.If it wasnt for Santa Fe South and the awsome teachers and all of there help,I would have never graduated.
I visited all three Sante Fe schools today as part of an observation trip. I am amazed at the staff and students at all three! Great kids, great staff, great schools. You are a model for inner-city schools - check that - ALL schools, for the rest of the country and every administrator in this nation could learn something great from you...keep it up Saints!
The majority of the teachers are always willing to help students.I'm personally impressed with the music teacher Mr Filleman, my Children have gone there from 6th all the way up to 12th and have nothing negative to say. Staff keep up the good work!!
Having taught at an Oklahoma City public school prior to coming to Santa Fe South, I can say that the staff here is a true team and we work together to motivate, inspire, and educate our students. Since we are a smaller school we can get to know each and every student. We act in partnership with our parents who are much more active in our school than at most public schools.
