Sophomore: I'm currently going into my second year at Seneca High school and I'm ready to get started. After my freshmen year I already learned a lot and have a clear idea of what I want to do in college and after. Seneca helped me with deciding, and provides good classes that help with my career. They do as much as they can for the students to help with whatever they can. Teachers here are always supportive and will talk to you about your needs. I like Seneca High School because I can feel safe and get a good education with help from others. Change in my highschool hasn't even crossed my mind. The administration is great and provides many opportunities for the students, whether it's ap/honors classes or extra curricular activities. It's a great school and I know I'm lucky to have these opportunities.

Alum: I thoroughly enjoyed the clubs and activities I was involved in at OTHS. They offered a very diverse variety of opportunities for students and most sponsors were dedicated and involved.
Regarding academics, I was disappointed at the lack of STEM and coding opportunities, but I feel that most of my coursework prepared me fairly well for college. There were several excellent, involved teachers who would go out of their way to help students, but unfortunately, also others who were clearly just phoning it in.
Overall I felt that many teachers had a fixed mindset regarding education and were not willing/able to think outside the box to relate to their students. As a result, graduation seemed impersonal and systematic rather than a final celebration of our accomplishments. I'll miss some things about OHS, but I'm happy to be off to bigger and better things!
