Saydel Community School District Reviews

Most teacher's such as miss sandquist mr. Cline in the mrs. Griffin where great teachers to me they showed nothing but care and appreciated my presents in the classroom I felt welcome in most of the classrooms even when others were around and I feel that the school has good teachers and the sports program such as our track program has been phenomenal show support for saydel and go Eagles!!!! In for diversity we have a GSA program and we also deal for the special needs students in a class Called unified PE I feel that that is pretty splendid when it comes to diversity we also get taught to speak Spanish and learn about everything like on things such as the Indians the Civil War and some old English dialogue such as Shakespeare which led to us learning Greek Latin roots we also get told to stop racism bullying
Review Saydel Community School District
My experience with saydel high school has been good in most ways. The teachers here are great and understanding and always try their hardest to teach as accurately as possible . Just like any other school there are people you aren't going to get along with but highschool is about the memories and the purpose. I've been here for four years and it's some of the best memories I have. Overall , the school district does as much as possible to help and understand students and it's always a safe place.
I love the saydel district. We are such a close knit family, the only thing I could change is how we handle some situations.
