Seven Lakes High School fosters diversity and success. From an academic standpoint, I feel as though I have an advantage. I am more prepared for higher education than many of my fellow students, and I was not a top 10% student. Socially, there is a place for everyone at Seven Lakes, although it doesn’t just fall into your lap. As a black female, I felt very comfortable there. I love the administration. It is very well organized and ran so smoothly, especially for a school with such a large student body. I felt as though I was personally known and cared for in a way that set me up for success. The principal strives to meet the needs of the student body and very obviously cares about what he does. He values student input and takes it very seriously. Overall, I loved being a Spartan!

Seven Lakes high school is a very competitive environment. The schools academic vigor is backed up by passionate and intelligent teachers. In most aspects Seven Lakes is incredible, from the variety of clubs and activities students can participate in to the great music and athletics program (except football) we have on campus. The one major problem that plagues Seven Lakes is cheating- most commonly banking (either taking pictures of the current test or using last years). Every single year, the top 10 will have cheaters, which is unfair to students who show academic integrity.
Cheating is rampant and institutionalized. When teachers do catch students cheating, they punish the whole class by administering more challenging tests or taking away opportunities for extra credit rather than punishing the cheaters. The administration does very little to prevent cheating, and as a result many hardworking students miss out on opportunities that are taken by high-achieving students that rely on test banks to help their grades. Students are forced to take summer classes or online classes to even have a chance at being in the top 7% to be auto accepted into state schools. Overall, my experience in this school was not very positive. This school prepares you for college well in that the teachers often do not teach, so students are forced to self-study. Additionally, successful programs, such as the fine arts programs or women's sports teams, are often underappreciated and dwarfed by our poor football team.
