There are many things I like about Sycamore High School. I enjoy that I can have honest conversations with my teachers and administration. I appreciate the support I have gotten during my time at Sycamore High School.

I also really enjoy my senior lounge time!

One thing I would change at Sycamore High School would be to offer more classes for students who struggle with academics. There are excellent tutoring opportunities and Spartan Stretch is helpful but more resources would also be great!
Sycamore High School is a very dedicated school. It dedicates all of it's time towards getting students involved in it's many extracurricular activities, preparing students for college and making sure that each student does not feel left behind. Though every school has it's bad eggs, I am proud to call myself a Sycamore Spartan!
