Scottsburg Senior High School Reviews

Scottsburg High School is an inclusive school with many opportunities for every student. Scottsburg High School has given me all the tools I need in order to succeed and thrive in the real world. Scottsburg starts preparing its students as early as their freshmen year in order to prepare them up for success. Depending on your pathway rather it be the military, workforce, or college Scottsburg starts building a pathway to help you get to your chosen path. The counselors do an excellent job in providing advice and caring for their students. The counselors have many individual meetings with kids in order to make sure the kids are on track for success. If the kids are not on track for success, the counselors do their best in order to get the child back on track. With the overflowing amount of sports, clubs, AP and dual credit classes Scottsburg offers such as Ultimate Frisbee, FCCLA, AP Statistics, and dual credit psychology, Scottsburg outshines many other schools in the area.

I would call Scottsburg High School a typical high school for anyone who attends here. Food isn't super great all the time, most teachers are caring and are willing to help you if they are asked, and there are opportunities everywhere- but you have to look for them. They have many athletic programs, a state-ranked marching band, and many clubs. Sunshine Society, FCCLA, Key Club, Archery, Boys Volleyball, Science Olympiad, Academic Team, and many more. They have two separate programs you can choose from: High Schools That Work (HSTW) and New Tech. HSTW is the traditional high school path, and New Tech teaching is modeled around Project-Based Learning. Both are very respectable programs that have their own benefits.
I love the administration. Some things got jumbled in the office at times, changing of principles and other positions. Even with the changes in the administration they also kept us up to date and introduced to everyone coming in and out of the school. The teachers are also incredible. Although the teachers and administration are fantastic, there is not really a way to express ourselves. There are outside opportunities, but it would be more effective to be able to paint parking spots and graduation caps.
