Senior: At SYVUHS everyone eventually sees one another and has an opportunity to make a new friend. It has high academic standards that are met through the education given by very intelligent teachers. Being a small valley community, the Santa Ynez Valley becomes a huge football supporting town that enjoys the Friday night lights. In this safe environment, many students are allowed to express who they are without judgment. Also, their amazing clubs allow you to experience the world outside of the SYV walls and expand students education on what the world has to offer. Overall, SYVUHS is a home that one grows to love and eventually sad about having to leave senior year. So, don't let the four years at SYVHUS pass by and experience a pirates life.

Senior: Orcutt Academy High School is very excellent at preparing students for a college setting. Teachers at this site treat each student as a college student but is always there to help the student if asked. They care about their students academic understanding as well as their life in general. Pupils do not need to be nervous when asking for help as the teachers explain their job is to help and educate the student so asking questions means they can guide the student better onto the understanding of the topic. The school celebrates LGBTQ community as well as a club. The school welcomes any group or people into their culture. The school has rallies every few months for events where the students complete against each other, or against teams of teachers. Sports at the school are interactive but I would not rate it 10/10, as the reason is sports aren't seen as the number one thing at school but instead its academics. Overall if I had to rate OA is would be 9/10!
