This school could not have left me more prepared for college. I had such an amazing experience not only due the amazing teachers inside the classroom, or the high school's well-renowned music program, or participating in varsity athletics, but also as a result of the diversity and extracurricular learning outside the realm of academia. I would say that the only true downside of Saratoga High School was the high-pressure environment and occasional downfalls in the area of school spirit due to an extreme focus on academics and engagement in extracurricular activities.

Extremely academically competitive school. Not as much emphasis on sports and arts, many students are overly concerned with college as opposed to other high school experiences like school events. However, there are a lot of resources available and the school places a lot of emphasis on mental health. Teachers are generally supportive and qualified. The school is well-known for its music, math, and MAP programs.
The school is academically difficult, yes, but the teachers are friendly here and it prepares you for college greatly! The school has great teachers and faculty members, at most of the teachers are willing to work with you if you are confused on what to do! So far, great school!
