The majority of the teachers are great teachers and people, but there are a few who simply do not care about whether their students do well or are learning anything. The food sucks eggs. We have a good diversity rating, but it is solely because of the high native american population and it doesn't actually feel diverse at all. Compared to almost every school in our area, our sports teams do well, despite the very small amount of money they receive. There is not much student involvement in clubs because all of the school is heavily focused on sports. Since it is such a small town, there is not a lot of acceptance for people who are different, but I do think that is definitely getting a lot better. The "school culture" is pretty normal for a high school, I assume. There isn't much conflict, but there is plenty of drama.

The thing I liked about Sault Area High School is how much the teachers helped you. If you felt like you were unsuccessful in anyway the teachers would make you feel back on top in a heart beat. They had really good sport choices and the Career Center was amazing. I took a class which was called Allied Health and it helped and motivated me to push towards my nursing career, allowed you to see cool things in the hospital setting, and even gave you transportation if you needed it. Everyone in the school is a family and since I graduated I'll miss it a lot.
The school environment could be better and honestly there’s just way too much drama. It’s really annoying other then that people are annoying, THERES SO MUCH UNNECESSARY WORK. I feel like it’s just because they are board and just want to throw work out
