Sachse is the place to be in gisd. The athletics are great, the teachers are the best I've ever had, and the friendships are truly life lasting! Sachse isn't the place to go in the district if you are a super genius though the academic opportunities at the school are numerous. The clubs however even out way those! But our school is most known for the crazy talented athletes the school spirit is huge as our teams strive to beat district goals year after year!

I enjoyed being a Mustang for the past 4 years. The AP teachers are very competent and teach well! The school is kept mostly clean and tidy. The school's sports are top notch in our own district, and we have many district titles. Unfortunately, the students' school pride is low. We don't have much school spirit, but everything else makes up for the lack of it.
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.
