Santa Susana High School is a high school full of creative, talented, and unique students. I have absolutely loved my experience at Santa Su, it’s come to a point where I love being at school more than at home! I am involved in so many programs, such as the theatre, vocal, and dance department. I’m even in an a capella group! I wouldn’t change one thing about Santa Su, for it has given me so many opportunities in the past four years that I will forever be grateful for.

I have had a very great experience at this school! Many of the teachers are there to genuinely help you, and they want to see you succeed. The performing arts department is so wonderful and really has helped me grow as a performer and a person. I truly could not imagine myself at any other high school. The only downside is, some teachers can be not the best at teaching information in the more difficult advanced classes, but there are still many other great teachers who make up for that!
Santa Susana High School is where academics go hand in hand with performing and visual arts. These three programs are very developed and accommodate each student very well. I personally had experience in each of these areas of study and enjoyed academics the most. The teachers care about your progress as a student and encourage you to be the best version of you that you can be. There are various opportunities regarding STEM and projects that will help you in your major. The community at this school will make you feel at home. We are very welcoming and learn from the diversity at our school. On top of that, there are dozens of clubs that pertain to each interest no matter how minuscule it is. From grilled cheese club to key club, activities on this campus are always lively. Overall, Santa Suana High sChool prepared me for college because I am now well rounded in many aspects. I hope if you go there, you will see that too!
