My overall experience with Sanger High School has been amazing. All staff are nice and understanding to everyone. One thing I don’t like much is that some teacher don’t really know how to teach well. A girl like me that doesn’t like to ask questions just stays quiet and asks for a friends help the next day. Some teachers don’t give enough examples and when it’s time to go home and do homework, it becomes difficult to do when you don’t know how to do something. Sanger High is indeed a great school with many activities and opportunities. As a junior they do start to get you prepared for the college lifestyle and start signing you up to College Board. My experience so far is terrific!

Sanger High School has some of the best teachers. They teacher in a deeper and meaningful level and care for the success of their students. There are pathways and AP classes on this campus for college credit and finishing an associate's degree. This school aids seniors in college readiness by continuously helping students with any questions, applications, and check up on their overall status. It is a safe school with administrators supervising all over the campus and they are actually close to our students as well. Instead of competition and ranking in academics, we work on the work ethnic and working as a team. It is easy to make friends with diverse and different people with different classes and interests. Overall, this school in my opinion is the best and makes me feel safe, ready, and a place to belong to.
My four years at Sanger High were a really wonderful time. School spirit is very strong there, and teachers and students do a lot to make everyone feel included. There are a ton of elective classes to choose from for almost any career path, and there is a strong emphasis on college readiness. My only complaint is that like many other public high schools, there is a much stronger emphasis on sports than creative fields like music and art. As an artist, I'd like to see more of the schools budget go towards newer and better quality art supplies, as well as more club activities for creative students.
