I went to San Dieguito Academy and I love the atmosphere on campus! The students are very welcoming and supportive of their classmates and although we do not have a football team, students still go to sporting events and cheer on the mustangs. The only problem i’ve ever had at school was when I was diagnosed with a concussion. Many of my teachers refused to accept my work late once I was cleared to participate in class. This obviously took a toll on my grades which has affected my chances of getting into college.

The staff here are extremely helpful, the teachers care about the students and their wellbeing and doesn't overwork them with unnecessary work. The school has tons of resources for the students, and encourages the overall wellbeing of the students, for example students can sign up for a mental health day where they open up to peers about their struggles and help one another. Overall a great community!
I’ve loved it here at SDA to be specific. The culture here is great, there’s not a social hierarchy or anything like that. Sports here are chill they’re not the Kong’s of the school or anything but they are fun. We have a marble racing club which tells you about our clubs. We have some very good teachers here and a couple not so good ones but they all seem to be leaving. Lots of art around the school.
