A nice school that does well with their nuclear plant funding. Each student has a laptop, which is an incredible learning tool, and so convenient!
A fieldhouse would be nice, especially as the rest of the facilities are so well-maintained. Seneca would be well served to spend less money on their terrible football program and more money on their incredibly successful track and field program.

I love that anyone can become friends no matter the age difference. I also love the teachers! They are very interactive and you always feel like they care about you and your education. They always find a eay to help you understand because they want you to comprehend the material given. I wouldn't want to be at any other high school. I feel like everyone is one big family. People are very nice and willing to help. It's an amazing school. Seneca has beyond amazing athletics. I do wrestling here at Seneca, I was pushed to work hard and I did things I never thought I could do thanks to my inspirational coaches. I wouldn't change a thing!
I particularly enjoyed how my high school made me feel like I belonged. A very cliché answer, I know, but it really did make me the confident and intelligent woman I am today. Seneca also had a great way of making school seem more fun and better than other schools. We have had many programs and fun assemblies that have really made every student possible feel part of the community.
