Sylacauga City Schools Reviews

Many of the aspects of the school are tremendous especially when it comes to forming one of the best schools around. We as a school are pushed by teachers to become the best we can in sports, testing, college entries, and so on. However, I do feel as if some of Sylacauga city schools become so headstrong about being the best in our regional area that we do not realize that there are much more advanced schools than us not too far away. As far as the entire school system, I have had a great experience with advancing my knowledge at this school as well as feeling close enough to freely express myself in a safe environment.

I have enjoyed the small classroom sizes and being able to create a personal relationship with my teachers. I have found that the teachers and staff will do anything in their power to help any student find success. It has been my experience that the academic advisers are vested in assuring that each individual have a goal and they are actively assisting each student in obtaining that goal. The school systems has taken much pride in establishing building and resources for the schools to ensure the schools are safe, clean and up to date with technology. It has been a great journey to be a part of such a great system.
I am currently a junior at Sylacauga High School and plan on graduating from here as well, I myself love the school. The only down is the food whereas it isn't as tasting nor healthy as it should be. Academically it's an upstanding school and I love the block schedule which gives the students a wide variety of courses to experience while attending before graduating. It's a diverse school and very social. The teachers that iv'e ran across while attending here go the extra mile for all their students even the ones they don't teach anymore nor teach at all. Some teachers give their students too much lead way. The counselors should do a better job in their profession but overall they do an okay job.
