Rosie Sorrells is phenomenal! The teachers there are so driven and they pass that on to the students. The principal there- Dr. Brown- is the cherry on top. The teachers provide an environment in which students have a safe haven. At Rosie Sorrells, when you describe a teacher, you find someone who is willing to listen to you, cater to your needs, give personal advice, provide food when in need. They are perfect!

Never did I ever imagine how much fun and how much I would enjoy going to such an amazing school. What makes our cluster so amazing is the people the teachers,every grain of love into such a loving environment,where everyone around you turns into family,as much as a cliche that sounds,our cluster really is “home.” My overall experience in high school has been tough,stress in core classes,typical drama,but my school gives me motivation and hope,they give me that oil ray of sunshine that I can do it,that all my sweat,all my tears,and especially all the lack of sleep has a reason and encourage me to keep going that I will be someone in life. Don’t get me wrong we do get downgraded as a cluster in Townview, compared to the other 5 clusters, honestly we’re the pure heart of townview,without us,there’s no them our cluster expands to every single field out there to every single heart,we put in so much work to make the world a better place,and being able to make changes change lives.
It's a good school. Everything is just fine. There are some great teachers and some horrible teachers. I've been lucky enough to have pretty good teachers throughout my high school career, though. Like a lot of DISD schools, the security is just piss-poor. It's way too easy to get into school without even being checked. Luckily though there haven't been any incidents, but if anyone has the motivation, they're in luck. I wish my school did a better job with college readiness too. We have one college counselor distributed throughout three schools within this building, the SAT preparation class that our school provides could be so much better, and our cluster teachers could have more knowledge on the whole college process. But overall, I think it was just a fine experience, and if you take advantage of the resources the school provides, you can have an enjoyable time.
