Sentinel high school is a very good place for everyone to feel included and not left out. Our motto is "no one left alone at the lunch table". Our administrators do a very good job of pushing this to everyone. Sentinel also has very good teachers that can build and establish relationships, teach at a high level in a creative way, and guide us in a path that we want, and often let us do certain projects and assignments within a subject or topic we like so that we are actually interested, which therefore gets us to learn and take away as much as we can from that assignment.
Sentinel High School has provided me with so many opportunities to grow and develop as a person, as well as prepare myself for college and the years following graduation. I have developed new skills and relationships that I would not have had I not attended Sentinel. Through Sentinel I have decided what I want to study and I cannot express how grateful I am for the experiences I have had at Sentinel over the past four years. The programs they offer and teachers that are leading said programs provide students with a fantastic learning environment and support throughout the entire year as to ensure the success and well-being of the students.
