Santa Fe High School Reviews

Santa Fe High School is great in that there are various and different things that one can get involved in. There are different clubs, sports, visual arts, etc., and one can create a new club that isn't already there! I personally joined color guard and it was amazing because I became part of a family, so in other words, joining a club or such can help one feel welcomed at the school. The food is alright, most of the same things are served everyday, but the good things is that there is a variety in foods for vegans, vegetarians, etc. Personally, I wish there was some changes regarding the food because I get tired of eating most of the same things every week. Most of the teachers in this school really care about their students in that they want them to succeed, so that's great. There are also many sources that help out students such as help for college, help for homework, opportunities to retake classes during the summer, etc. Overall, I like this school and I would recommend it.

It’s a very good school and welcoming, there are lots of events/clubs/sports to join and have experiences! Campus isn’t too big or too small either. It’s easy to make friends and teachers are very nice and approachable. Maybe I’d change somewhat of the dress code.
Santa Fe high school wants their student to be prepared for the outside world. Whether that be college, military or just getting a job. Avid it's a college readiness program that prepares students for college life. It also has a place where students interested in college can go to the college career center and they have things from scholarships, sat free waivers, or just questions about college. Santa Fe knows that not every student will go to college that why it has programs like the ROP. These programs can help students who are looking for experience in a career or job that doesn't necessarily have to goes to college route. They also hold fairs that are dedicated to jobs and careers. Santa Fe also sets up booths during lunch if students are interested in the air force, military and navy. One thing I like about Santa Fe is is if you have an opinion about a change that you want to make happen if you put enough effort you can make that happen at Santa Fe.
