So far, my overall experience with Santa Rosa High School has been quite a ride! The student body has the most spirit and character than any other school I have been to. I especially have enjoyed the ArtQuest Program focusing in Dance. ArtQuest has truly improved my skills and learning development throughout the years. Another great thing about Santa Rosa High School are the amazing teachers that run the place. Every teacher at this school puts the children first and focuses on teaching us everything we need to know. I'm so lucky that I had been given an opportunity to go to this school.

I really liked Santa Rosa High. They have great spirit and the campus is beautiful. I think Santa Rosa high has a lot to offer from the diverse student population, to our Artquest program, to FFA, to sports. There are so many clubs to join to get to know so many other students which is amazing! The teachers are very helpful and very nice!
Santa Rosa High is a very diverse and accepting place. Many students flourish from the inclusivity and kindness that is exhibited by most of the students and staff. The ArtQuest Program that it is known for provides students with the artistic outlet they need in their day, whether that be music, art, film or drama. Being able to easily intersperse vocal music classes with my academic ones definitely improved my overall happiness and success at school. That being said, I did not feel as though I was given very many options to choose from for other classes. There are very limited choices for science and extracurricular courses which disabled me from discovering what truly interested me.
