Merle Sidener Gifted Academy School No. 359 Reviews

Sidener was definitely a good change for me. The teams are wonderful, and all clubs and classes are fantastic. It doesn't take long before you find you're school family. There are "cliques" for sure- but not in a bad way. Everyone welcomes you with open arms. The opportunity for experience and change is one that is not comparable. The teachers are fantastic people who make you feel like you have a home away from home!

I loved how close all the students got to be with each other. We grew up together and had each other’s backs and still communicate in high school. I also loved the challenges set forth for the students. We were pushed to do our best. It’s one of the reasons why I try so hard in school now. I would like to see more extracurricular activities going on though.
This school is horrible do not send your kids here I promise it is not worth the trouble this school is not meant for your children
