SFPS are a very Diverse and welcoming set of schools. they are diverse and rich with culture and traditions. SFPS feels like a bubble where we can all and be ourselves. I've been a student for a very long time here and I've never felt like my safety has been at risk. I feel bitter sweet as I graduate now in 2018. I feel like the SFPS school district has prepared me for the future not only by allowing me to be myself, but by encouraging me to be creative. I would like to thank SFPS for helping me succeed!

We are seeing budget cuts more and more every year, public schools being the ones affected I understand that this is not everybody working for the district's fault. Budget cuts force districts to lay off teachers, pushing schools far from the goal of smaller classrooms.The teachers we still have are getting paid less as if they needed more reason to quit. It inhibits economic growth because teachers are part of the local working class that goes shopping at local businesses that are part of the investors of local education. Thus, the recovery to the state budget is stagnant. In my school alone we lost the only means to recover failed credits, the school was worried about the low graduation rate dropping even more, too late now.
Over the years we had increased this rate though. our test scores were going up but very little.
My school was very college oriented, we focused a lot on AP. Advanced Placement was helpful in some ways, but hurtful in others. It is very stressful and hard to keep up with. Teachers were amazing, I felt they really cared about me and my education. There were not many sports or clubs available at my school, but they were open to new ones. My school is safes far as no one is going to start a fight, but we are in a rural are so accidents happen. There were no shooting threats at my school, so that is good.
