A smaller community of students and staff than many other schools, with a graduating class usually of 100 or lower, allows for a more personal education. Low student to teacher ratios are great when you're in need of some extra support or helping hand. Everyone is exceptionally welcoming, relationships formed with the teachers is unlike any other a school I've attended. Academics can be ridiculously easy or especially challenging, depending on one's work ethic and classes they decide to take. Junior year and beyond, there is a lot of academic freedom. Two downsides: the entire art department consists of one classroom, one teacher, and there is not a lot of emphasis on it. This and, racial diversity at this school is virtually nonexistent. As a poc and newer student, I was a bit shellshocked the first couple days, as I came from a school where there was a 50/50 ratio between caucasian and poc. Here is, wow. Surprising too, because Utica is right there. NONETHELESS, great school!

I have enjoyed my experience and years at Sauquoit Valley High School. Unlike some people, I love how small and close the community is with each other. Such as with sports, even though we are a small school almost all the students and parents go and support the other sports teams which is a great sense of a close community. With all the recent shootings around the United States, I have never once felt uncomfortable, threatened, or unsafe. Our school is very serious and strict about our safety which is important now a days. This past school year Sauquoit hired a police officer to be at the school at all times to check and walk the halls during the school day to make sure everything is good and okay and also to be there in case of an emergency. As I am applying to college, I feel as though Sauquoit has prepared me to go off to college and experience this new chapter of my life. All in all, I have enjoyed the memories and experiences with Sauquoit Valley.
Growing up in Sauquoit, I was honored the opportunity to create friendships that will last a lifetime, learn more about my future career path through internships and a well-rounded education, and have a successful career in high school sports.
