In 2012, some girls on the basketball team hazed 3 other girls and touched them inappropriately. Parents of the victims reported the hazing and yet administration did nothing for months. It is said on websites that have reported on this issue that the Vice Principal told the girls doing the hazing to keep the issue quiet in order to preserve the reputation of the school. This principal is still employed at Siegel. This is extremely disturbing. Be aware parents that your children's safety comes second to the school's reputation. This is unacceptable that this principal is still working at the school, or any school for that matter. No persons entrusted with the care of our children should 'keep things quiet' due to the sake of reputation. Parents: send your kids here with caution.
As a grandmother who has watched interaction of students and staff, I am always amazed at the way the students are taught to reach the highest level they are capable of. This is in everything, not just academics. The band, the chorus, the clubs and anything else I missed are rated very high throughout Tennessee. Thank you Siegel for all the times I've been entertained.
Siegel High School is the greatest school in all of the United States. Top athletics in the state and most definitely top academics. Siegel has teachers that will do everything they can to get the student to be the best they can be. It is the students job to apply this and get involved in every way they can. #P2BASS
Office staff are rude. The web site is sub-standard. ALL teachers should have an email address listed and should post homework so that parents can be involved. I have to contact office to reach some teachers. How archaic.
I graduated in May of 2011 so my memories are still fresh. Without the superb teaching and administration I wouldn't have been able to get a nearly full ride to my college ($1020 a semester isnt' bad for an out of state student!). I took mostly advanced and AP classes but as far as I can see the teachers truly care about their students especially if they APPLY THEMSELVES AND DEMONSTRATE A THIRST FOR LEARNING. All the best teaching in the world is useless to a fool.
This school does not care about any students except those who have straight A's or are athletically gifted. There are several excellent teachers, but there is little or no administrative direction. Many teachers seem to believe that making assignments is the same as teaching. The school is too large, and the principal takes no initiative to recognize any but the top 10% of students. Good kids are overlooked and discouraged. This school has every advantage, and could do more,but actually does very little with its resources.
I'm a senior at Siegel. I really love my school. We have so many extra curricular activities going on that everyone has a chance to find what they're interested in. Everyone, for the most part, respects the dress code so they're not very strict. An easy way to find friends if your first moving to the school is attend a sport game. If we are playing away most of the time the pep bus will take us there so we can still support our teams. Overall, Siegel is a excellent school.
Siegel High Teachers care for their students. They also are the best in teaching. Siegel High provides opportunity for all-round personality deveolpment for students
I am a parent that loves Siegel High. My older son was in the first class of freshmen to attend Siegel and he graduated in 2007. Now my younger son is a Junior there. The faculty and administration have been wonderful to my sons. Both boys have been active in football and now my younger son has had the opportunity to be on the stunt squad with the cheerleaders for a second year and he loves it. I truly believe there is something for everyone at that school. There is a great spirit among the students and parents who are plugged in to the school. There will always be those that will find things to complain about and certainly nothing is perfect, but Siegel has provided a great high school experience for my sons. Go Stars!
My son will be starting his sophmore year in 2010. I couldn't be happier with our school expierience thus far. The band is incredible and if your child is interested in participating in a band, this school would be the one you want to pick. They have won many awards and are just an outstanding group of young adults. The instructors are strict, yet so positive and helpful. I will say that the 'money' of Rutherford County tends to go to this school (although everyone who attends is not so fortunate). It can be a difficult place to become ivolved as a parent due to politics. Unless you have $ or influence, you're looked over.
My daughter is a 9th grader and this year has been great. The teachers care, the students are respectful and the atmosphere is very positive.
Siegel High School is a great place to enroll your kids it has great school spirit, a supportive staff, excellent athletics, and provides outstanding academics.
i hope your child isn't different in any way or else they will be bullied by not only students but teachers. trust me im a student and i've seen it and been through it.
I'm a freshman at Siegel, and I love this school! The faculty is so incredible-they really care for their students and make you feel good about yourself. I'm a cheerleader also and never dreamed that I'd see such school spirit. It's truly a privilege to be a part of such a great high school. Go Stars!
From what I've heard Siegel High school is one of the best schools in Rutherford county. Well if that's true then most of the schools in this county are absolutely atrocious! Once I transferred to this school I had to immediately leave the regular education classes because they were just like special education at my other school. And the honors classes are a n absolute joke, to say the least. What would would expect from honors children at most other schools certainly does not apply to Siegel. There are very few academic options in this school, and the only team or club that any person could be in for academics is the Foreign Language clubs (if you really call that academic).
I'm a student at Siegel High School, and it is a very nice experience. With the help of the staff, I passed both of the AP tests I took last year (I'm a senior now). A+ for this school.
This was a fantastic experience for my son at Siegel. The teachers and administrators are fantastic. You can't say enough good things about Mr. Nolan.
I have had two children under this administration,Mr Nolan and Mrs Milsaps, I can't say enough about how positive this team is. Focus is on the well being of the student body and emphasis on individual student needs. Office personnel is friendly and eager to be of service to both parent and student needs. Mr Nolan, the principal can be both an no nonsense mentality when needed and someone to play Frisbee with the kids during lunch break in the courtyard.Wow! Academics (offerings and quality are above average). A four year old school has a room for growth and improvement and this administration will get the job done. Complacency is not a part of this teams makeup. The drama department is awesome and no complaints on the AP courses (Go Mr Bowman)! The gifted program is superior and I love the teachers sense of support of each other. Keep shining !
Freshman year at Siegel went very smooth. I can say the principal has been the best of 4 principals in my student's school career. The principal is disciplined, fair, genuinely cares about the school but also fun. Parent participation is high, especially in band. I was impressed with the band. Although tough when needed, Mr. Rhody and Mr. Medford did a great job with the band and Mrs. Rhody did a great job with color guard. What an awesome, talented and beautiful band show performance. The freshman teachers have been helpful/concerned for my student and when asked for parent/teacher help, I got it. Teachers, one word 'THINKWAVE' .com. This was so helpful. Parents check it out and ask your teachers to start using it. I could find out my students grades before progress/report cards, and if extra work was needed to raise a grade, we had time. Thanks Mrs. Sullivan (geometry.)
