The teachers and most of the staff were excellent. My child was bullied by the principal. She basically told her what she thought. Although I agree that she should have shown more respect and gotten a reasonable reprimand for being rude The principal went way too far. My child was told with me in the room that she was not college material that she was not smart enough to complete a class that she later made an A in. She was also told that she would not graduate and that it would take her another full year to complete her credits. She enrolled in a program at central tech and finished 2 mos early. I thought that it was just us then spoke to a teacher who had a similar experience with her daughter. I didn't appreciate Glissen telling my child that she would not go to college.
As an involved citizen and a parent of Sapulpa High School students, I am very proud of Sapulpa High School, and it's teachers! My children had a very positive experience, and were allowed to excel in their individual talents and explore new fields of education! I can only hope my future grandchildren will be attending Sapulpa Public Schools!
Racist, sexist, and politicly outspoken are some of the qualities of the teachers you will find hear. Four years and it is still becoming less of an educational experience and more of a daycare. If they would spend less time reprimanding people for talking, standing in halls, dime size holes in jeans, etc. maybe we could learn something. There are teachers though that excel past this stereotype I put on this school but most do not. For those that do teach in a manner that is actually beneficial to are education thank you. To those who have waisted our time with busy work and bias teaching I have a few words for you that I can not post here.
This school deserves a zero star rating. I went to this school for a whole school year and I was schocked to see so many over powered teachers there were. Thats not even all of it. Most of the teachers are racist and choose favorites and decided who passes and fails. Also I have never seen so many students going to school under the influence without teachers noticing. Also bullying is a big thing that ive seen. All in all Sapulpa Highschool does not focus on whats important (education) they focus on what makes the school sound better. I have personally seen it all and it doesnt get a good rating on my part.
The leadership and the quality of teachers should be overhauled at this school from the top down. I have never seen such unprofessional leadership in my life. There are very few good teachers teaching at this high school and trying to get your child the best teacher is next to impossible. There is no flexibility when trying to change your child's schedule and if you complain about a teacher it falls on deaf ears. It is their way or no way, even if it means lying to your face. There is no respect given to the students and toward the end of school bathroom privileges are revoked. They should be more concerned about the quality of education they are giving these kids than their personal business. I would never recommend this school!!
Simply the best school experience for my children. Self-esteem was re-enforced by many wonderful teachers for both of my children. Grades consistently high. Honor roll! Mentoring and memories that will stay with my children forever. Highly recommend! After moving here from another city with bad memories both my children had from thier previous school, this was just the answer.
Sapulpa Schools have the best of both worlds in that they are a 6A school with a small school mentatlity when it comes to individual attention to the kids. My son had an invaluable experience at Sapulpa. Thank you SHS!
Great school! Top programs in art, JROTC, choir, girls basketball, etc. Where else can you find a program with such a great staff and supporting community?
I grau.from sapulpa and i loved it very much. Like most of the people have said sapulpa teacher really cared about you and what you wanted out of life. I had a learning problem and i feel they helped me as much as they could. I am very greatful for them. Thank you agine guys!
Sapulpa High School has the very best art program in the state of Oklahoma, There are some good teachers there to, but i feel like nobody has any fun at the school anymore, no pep rallys or suport for the sports teams, hardly any extracurricular activits.. The discipline at our school is very harsh.
I went to sapulpa my junior and senior year. It was the worst years for me. Due to hearing lost the teachers would not teach me, it was easier for them to just give the answers on work and test. I would not recommened any student with any kind of disability to go there.
All three of my children went to Sapulpa high school, and it was a bad experience for all of them. If you have a special needs child, as I do, then SHS is not the place that you want them to go. All the teachers care about is getting rid of special needs children, such as cutting their day down to only 3 hours a day. A parents oponion does not mean a thing to the teachers & staff at SHS. This is a very political school, with lots of pressure for parent & child. It is nearly impossible for a parent to get SHS to treat a special needs child as they should be treated. I give SHS a big fat zero! Extra curricular activities, what extra curricular activities? SHS does not allow special needs children to participate in extracurricular activities!
I'm a graduate of Sapulpa and I felt like my high school experience was great. There was plenty to participate in. The teachers were never too bad, some were outstanding. I felt prepared for college because of those teachers who pushed me to become better. Students are friendly and can get along with just about anyone.
I graduated from Sapulpa and I think Sapulpa did an oustanding job of preparing me for college and the work force. There are (like all schools) a few teachers that just wanted a paycheck, but for the most part, all of the teachers genuinely wanted to see the students succeed and would often go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that they would. I can not thank SHS enough for the many fond memories and the excellent education I recieved.
I agree with the other person that said it was very political there. It is. Political, and lots of bullying if you don't wear brand names or if you are caught shopping at Wal-Mart. That was the case in the late 80's early 90's...I hope it has changed, though I've heard it hasn't. I will not let the child I'm fixing to adopt attend Sapulpa Public Schools for these very reasons.
I went to Sapulpa High School for my whole high school career. It is a very political environment that makes it stressful for parents with children in extracurricular activities. I graduated 5th in my class and I believe that the curriculum and staff did not prepare me for the responsibilities and the work load at college.
I think the Sapupla school district is the best one in Oklahoma. They take the time and effort to help your child through all kinds of things throughout their impressionable years. I really commend these teachers and staff of the Sapulpa Schools.
I think Sapulpa High School is the greatest as far as being supportive of students goals and proud of their achievements. The choral department is the greatest it's been in years!
