Boerne-Samuel V. Champion High School Reviews

I really can't say that I have many fond memories of my time at Champion. Although test scores and grade averages are high; the intense pressures of academic success created an experience that can be best described as stressful, frustrating, and anxiety-inducing. The grades and test scores I achieved thanks to the handful of talented and passionate teachers I had over the years have, sadly, been overshadowed by negative experiences caused by the school's administration caring solely for Champion's reputation according to the outside world. Administration places value on students based on success in the classroom, and favorites are always obvious. Things that are arguably more important than class rank such as talents and personality as a whole are overlooked by most staff. Students at Champion are treated as little more than a number; be it rate of attendance, GPA, or standardized test score.

Champion High School is the epitome of the high school experience all students should have. All staff members are competent and hardworking to create a healthy environment for its students. The school offers classes specifically designed to prepare students for the career they choose to persue. The advanced courses that are offered are taught by the most qualified and hardworking teachers I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Though, it isn’t a very diverse school, everyone is very kind towards one another and include other students. With a variety of clubs and organizations, every student can find a home for themselves surrounded by kind and helpful peers.
Champion Highschool is not your average Highschool experience. We live in a comparatively wealthy community where having a good education is highly stressed. As a result, the academics are extremely challenging. We see classmates as competitors and it effects extracurricular activities drastically. We’ve had an administrative transition where outside activities and school spirit have been brushed under the rug and where academic rigor and the prevention of “bad activities” have become administration’s priority. My freshman year was full of Charger spirit, smiles in the hallways, and kids taking the time to get to know one another. Now, the hallways are full of sleep deprived students cramming material, football stands only filled on the first five rows, and kids only acknowledging others by what they hear. I have no doubt that I am fulfilled academically but I can say that I feel I’ve been deprived of the true “Highschool experience”.
