Como Park Senior High School Reviews

Very good school! The academics, especially in the sciences and maths, are really well taught. The teachers make it interesting. The only complaint I have is about the arts program; unfortunately, the SPPS school district does not put enough money into its arts programs, even though they are, in my opinion, vital to student social and academic development.

The school overall, I guess is okay. The curriculum is average although, there were a couple books I wished I didn’t have to read, and I felt were above my comfort level and of course you get the teachers. I my opinion, I dislike most of them. There are a few honorable mentions, the sweet and understanding Ms. Her, she retired I believe due to sickness. Mr. Erickson, some may disagree, but his class was easy, and he was fair. Mr. Ahlm, Although a newbie when he taught AP Chem, he was still a laid-back teacher and tolerant. And lastly, Mr. Magnuson. Very fun and laid-back, lenient when grading and patient.
My experience here isn’t that bad. Sometimes, I feel like the school and teachers are really unorganized. There are definitely some teachers who have no idea what they are doing and they have been teaching at Como for over twenty year now. The school isn’t really stric, which I like, but there’s also a downfall to that. I see a lot of students that go on their phones and teachers don’t really have control over their students. Although Como has it’s flaws, Como also gives students many opportunities. You have to reach out if you want something. Como has many after school activities that you can join in. We have College Possible, Upper bound, sports, clubs, and any activities to help you find yourself.
