Good relationship with teachers in small classrooms for Honor students. No more than 30 students. Teachers need to improve the amount of homework given and points given. Math teachers need to give more than 5 points for homework assignments having more than 40 questions.
Art teacher in HS did not major in art. He is the only art teacher there. Great artist but has hard time giving constructive criticism to students without putting them down. However, the choir and band department are excellent choices.
We also have one of the largest gymnasiums in the nation!
One MAJOR issue is that they do not include/allow the senior class to vote for their student government representative positions (class present and vice president do not get decided by the senior class)!!

I enjoyed a lot of my classes at Seymour High School and many of the teachers are very personable. Some areas like the English department could be improved. Food quality is poor with many food being overly processed and tasting weird. The school culture, while it is getting better, is compared to other schools low and underwhelming. Being apart of the soccer program, I have first hand experience with the sports and my team did very well and had a phenomenal season other programs are struggling such as volleyball, basketball, and football.
The school prepares students well for college, but personally I wish there were more opportunities for ambitious students.
