At its core, Henry Sibley is an amazing school. The teachers here are some of the best, they are always will to help and they push us to be the best. The student body here is very accepting and there aren't many people you will have problems with unless you decide you want to. The music department here is absolutely amazing. The band program, in particular, is top-notch. My experience in the wind ensemble has been outstanding. The level of performance and teaching rivals many average collegiate ensembles. And there is an equitable lesson program here that offers scholarships to any student that needs it. Overall this school is amazing if you're looking to achieve at a high level but the general courses aren't super amazing. But if you are looking for a friendly community, an exceptional music department, and some amazing teachers, then Sibley is it!

I love attending Henry Sibley High School. The staff is almost always ready to help you in any ways possible. The academics are stellar and I feel that I have received an incredible education at this high school after taking many of the numerous advanced and AP courses the school offers. The student body is one big community and is very tight knit. One thing I would like to see change is the overall commitment of the student body to the betterment of the community as a whole, whether that be through better funding of clubs and activities to get kids more involved, or overall better advertisement of the immense number of opportunities the school holds to get kids more involved in things. The same group of kids are involved in many activities while many others are involved in few to none. Overall, my experience at Henry Sibley was amazing and I am deeply saddened to be graduating after a short 4 years.
I have had an okay experience at this school. The teachers are very wonderful though. The teachers provide a great work environment as well as lots of support. For me, the majority of the teachers I have had go above and beyond to ensure that their students succeed and get the best of education one could receive. The teachers are very inclusive, positive, and friendly. It is very easy to become best friends with your teachers. I do appreciate the diversity at my school. There is a rich culture mixed with many varieties of people which makes a great student body. On the other hand, I wish a lot of the students would be more accepting to new people and open to new ideas.
