Sachse High School is a very competitive school that offers a lot of spirit! From having the gym full of students at 4AM to be on the news to staying up late at football games over three hours away. The teachers are very kind, and really challenge the student, and prepare them for the rigor of what college will offer. There are several of organizations on campus, and several programs that will prepare you for producing resumes, and preparing you for the SAT exams.

If you can find a way to get involved it will make your high school experience more enjoyable! Although being involved can sometimes become overwhelming, it’s always worth the memories and fun in the end. A main problem is that the administration doesn’t listen to the students and parents when a problem, such as bullying, arises and they tend to put most of their attention on the star athletes.
Most of the classes I have taken at Sachse High School have been AP classes, so speaking in perspective of being in an AP class, there are some teachers who teach well and others who don't. Some teachers want their students to learn and use different teaching methods to engage their students in activities. However, other teachers tend to give out assignments and expect their students to complete it without teaching the material and that balance between teachers makes Sachse High School an average school.
