Santa Rosa High School provided me with an enriched environment that has something to offer for each and every student. With their ArtQuest program, as well as wide range of sports and academic clubs, the school provides a diverse environment. I personally participated in ArtQuest's fine arts program as well as played on the tennis team all four years. My experience with the other students was generally good, as the school encourages respect among the peers. I had a few bad experience with a couple students, and small number of teachers and administration, but overall the good outweighs the bad. I think some improvements they could make are advertising about their clubs more, as I didn't really know much about the clubs at school. Also, the funding for my tennis team lacked almost laughably in comparison to the funding of my ArtQuest class. My coach constantly had to buy his own equipment, and our budget was very low.

I used to think that Santa Rosa High School was a really great school when I first began attending it as a freshman, but now it's senior year and things around the school have really changed. I feel that many students have lost the deep involvement they once had with the school. The teachers at Santa Rosa High School are amazing as are the selection of classes. Although the facilities may o I try not to focus on the things that aren't so great at the school because I should be completely focused on my education and schoolwork. Overall the school is alright.
Amazing high school on so many levels. People are open-minded, kind, helpful and fun! Academics are great and the campus is huge and college-like.
