Seven Lakes High School Reviews

Extreamly competative school, it's easy to fall behind. The teachers are often unhelpful choosing to focus more on the top students than the average or underachieving. Not a good school for special needs students as the school is reluctant to provide needed assistance. Also their choir program is horrible! There are some good teachers and they do have many extracurricular classes and sciences, its just not good if you aren't a top performer.
Review Seven Lakes High School
Seven Lakes high school is a place where one can see success if they are willing to work hard and assume an uncompromising position. The school is equipped with the necessary tools to allow for one's success and is accompanied by the rigorous and time-consuming workload. The school is most well known for its strong academic competition and has nationally recognized scholastic teams such as speech and debate and science olympiad. It is also well known for the effectiveness of its AP programs; ensuring that one is prepared for the AP exams that occur annually. This school, however, loses its merits when it comes to its notoriety from cheating. Cheating is an epidemic at this school and derails effective education while escalating grades over content mastery. The culture that surrounds the school pressures students to compromise morals in order to pursue apparent academic gain.
Aside from dealing with my own stresses, my high school experience was quite positive. Of course, I prefer college, but I'm glad I went to such a positive school with great teachers. One of my favorite experiences was my Spanish for Spanish Speakers class. Señor Brazo is an incredible teacher. He can be tough sometimes but he did not just teach us how to speak proper Spanish, he also taught us about being good people. He encouraged me to speak in class more, despite having a sometimes-awkward accent. He is the reason I found one of my passions - Video Production. We had a project every six weeks and we always did videos and I decided I would be in charge of editing, simply because acting was not my forte and I had a good video editing software. To this day I still do video production on a small scale. I am already including it in my career!

My second favorite experience was when Señor Brazo encouraged me to join the SLAMcast. I had attended Miller, which was great, but I felt like there was so much more I could still learn than just one school year's worth. I auditioned for the SLAMcast and, despite being incredibly nervous when I was practicing anchoring (and stumbling over my words), I did a great job with the interview portion of the audition. My teacher, Mr. Kolkman, acted as a student in the robotics club, and I had to interview him. I submitted a portfolio of some past work I've done in video production. I ended up being accepted into the organization. It was a lot of work. I've never put this much work after school on projects simply because we incorporated more than just a roll of film. Mr. Kolkman encouraged me to anchor, despite my horrendous anchoring part of the audition. I was hesitant simply because I'm not one to be on camera often, but I agreed. This helped improve my public speaking skills and I became so much more confident in myself. I would choose SLHS again because of how much it helped me grow up.
