What I liked about sahuarita Highschool is the community. It is a small community so teachers didn’t have many students, which gave the teachers room to pay attention to each student. The curriculums also are great, especially the ROTC program. Overall the students and faculty are very welcoming and are determined to get everyone the right track, GO MUSTANGS!

I really enjoy school in general, and my school district does a very good job at keeping my outlook on education. Not only does it provide great teachers who care about their student's future, but the entire district itself is very supportive of its students and extra-curriculars. The only thing I would change is becoming more tech savvy like Sunnyside School District because it gives students more opportunities to avidly participate in school tasks and allows for them to grow with the surrounding world.
During the four years that I have been attending Sahuarita high school I have seen a lot of changes throughout the district. I have seen clubs begin and end. Personally I believe that the school board does not treat all clubs or academic subjects equally. Some are more favored than others. Though I cannot complain. I have met very talented teachers who have fulfilled my academic needs and more. They have helped me understand sistuations that would have been difficult for me to approach had I not taken their classes. Though the extracurricular activities are not favored, which must change, academically I am satisfied and I appreciate Sahuarita high school for my high education.
