Alright overall. Some teachers know what they're doing and others can get on your nerves. Could do better in terms of academics.

I was a cheerleader for Santa Rita high school and I had a ton of fun with the sports at the school. There used to be a lot of spirit but it has died down a lot now. I would like there to be an improvement in the teaching. There were some great teachers but there were also not so great teachers. The curriculum needs some improvement in some subjects. There is some JTED programs that are really great though.
Most teachers at Santa Rita have given me the knowledge that I have kept in my head today. Alot of the teachers take the time to get to know their students and create an open environment were they are easily approachable. They create an organized lesson plan to follow throughout the day and ask students regularly if there is something that they could change for the next time to make lessons go more smoothly. Overall I have had a great experience with my past teachers at Santa Rita.
