First public I’ve been to, and it’s the best choice I’ve made. Freshman I was quite scared but definitely felt welcomed. Their school is very good and a lot of people participate in school activities and do a lot of things that make the high school experience so much more enjoyable. I’m African American and I’ve never felt like I didn’t belong. The school makes sure that the kids have safety and make sure the parents know what is going on in the school. I’m glad I chose to go to public school and it was Sabino I choose to go
the academics here are decent, all of the teachers are wonderful people, but some cannot teach. Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry is the best math class, and AP World History is the best history class. As for the students, I try to avoid the trouble-makers and gossip as best I can. There are fights sometimes, but as long as you hang with the right people, you should be fine. the school is poorly-funded, the sports programs are decent, and the academics are often mediocre at best. However, there are the special moments in the school that make it better.
