My experience at Seven Lakes has been fun and exciting all 4 years I've attended. Each year is completely different which helps to keep everything fresh and real. You never know what to expect but at the same time you know that no matter what it is, it's always manageable. The entire experience is customizable and you pick all the classes and friends you want to take and be around. The school does a very good job of keeping everything up to date and providing opportunities for everybody in ways that I've never seen before. All of the technology is new and up to date and very accessible for all students. The student body as a whole is very nice and easy to get to know with everybody being open and friendly. Overall, my experience has been nothing short of amazing!

I have gone to Seven Lakes High School for my freshman, junior, and senior years of high school. From being able to compare the differences between my two schools, I am able to say that Seven Lakes has prepared me for college, given me amazing teachers and confidants, and has an abundance of extracurricular I have been able to be a part of. Although the school work here is extremely rigorous compared to surrounding schools, it has given me more knowledge and preparation for my future. I am beyond grateful I have had the chance to go to Seven Lakes!
I like how strong Seven Lakes pushes academics to the point that it thourougly generates strong students, however this also imposed several negative consequences. The demand for such excellence amongst grades and other academic achievements ushered in a heavy influence of cheating and academic dishonesty. The stressful environment of Seven Lakes was a breeding ground for depression, anxiety, and other mental issues due to the competitiveness. I believe that decreasing the stress on the students by reducing homework amounts, easing up on assessments, and even promoting more non-school related activities would greatly benefit the students at the school. Seven Lakes should place a greater emphasis on other events at the school such as the sports teams, fine arts programs, dance, cheer, etc.
