I graduated from the Missoula high school Sentinel four years ago. Sentinel is a pretty good school, the teachers were awesome! While I was there the Principle and Vice principle were not the best at relating to the students and did not seem to have the best interest of the students at heart. Overall the school was really good and I'm glad I was able to attend school there.

I would like to see the teachers have a bit more voice in the administration. The teachers are the ones interacting with the kids every single day. They know what is really going on, and what really needs to be done. The administration is like some foreign power. I would like the students to be informed of the goings on in the administration, and also have a bigger voice at the individual meetings.
It offers a quality education, but it could do more to increase diversity and open sports tryouts fairly.
