While there are a great amount of stuck up entitled kids, and your typical “high school hierarchy”, my experience here has been great. I am by no means outgoing, and am in truth rather shy, but I have found a close group of friends that I cherish. In addition, almost all the teachers I have had over the course of four years have been incredible, have broadened my perspective of the world, and more than adequately prepared me for both end of the year testing, like APs and regents exams, and life beyond high school.

Throughout my four years at Saratoga Springs High School, I have thought that the school was the perfect size. It gave me opportunities to always meet new people and become experienced in various different activities. The teachers were always very helpful and offered every student help when needed. At Saratoga Springs High School, the environment was positive particularly during school spirit week and athletic events. During the homecoming football games, the home student section would be crammed with kids dressed in Saratoga Springs apparel. If I could change one thing, it would be for more economic and political diversity within the student population.
Saratoga Springs High School has great AP programs, and AP teachers are very willing to work with students. However, in the normal placement classes there is little motivation to succeed. As student taking AP classes, Saratoga has definitely prepared me for college, and there are some resources, such as the math learning center, that provide students with extra help.
