I'm about to graduate this amazing school, and there's so much I'm going to miss. I will miss the amazing teachers and advisors who have been so supportive of me and my dreams. I will miss all the diverse clubs and activities that I was blessed to be involved in. And, most of all I will miss the band and the spirit that everyone at the school has.

If there was anything that I would like to see improved upon are the athletics and mainly academics of the school. They pride themselves in their IB program, but they never use it's full potential. They give the basics courses needed for someone to get their IB diploma. Yes, students are challenged, but every year it amazes me to see that the most IB diploma students go to exactly the same place as any other AP or Dual Enrollment student: in-state college. IB is an amazing program, but I just wish they would use it to it's full potential.

Overall, I still love this school, and I wouldn't trade it for the world!

poor school climate. drug dealing and illegal goings on right under teachers and admins noses! Cheating is rampant! Teachers and admins try to be too cool with the kids. Like they are back in high school themselves. Lack of disiclpine is a big big problem! Female admins are a joke ignorant , racist play favorites. Weird place the thugs and druggies have more agency in this school than the hard working intelligent good kids do maybe thats cause they are out numbered. Admins are dorks trying to be “cool with the cool kids” and know nothing about teen culture and are very non withit!
Sebastian has the IB program, which greatly adds to the overall ranking of the school in my opinion. The program increases college readiness and success, and is highly suggested. Though it is difficult, it creates a community that works together and grows quite close, even through college. The facilities such as the bathrooms are not ideal, as they are practically outside and have no mirror and rarely and soap. The food is also apparently not the best, though I have never tried it. Overall, do the IB program!
