Hi my name is Djayla, I rated My high school Sewanhaka HS very good! I went to school here for four years I’ve seen some positive changes along the way., but there’s always room for improvement. The reason why I say this is because I apply the same concept for myself. Where I know I received a great education at this school. There still a lot more for me to learn!

Personally, Sewanhaka helped me become more social and intelligent. They encouraged me to do more advance classes for my skill level. The teachers and staffs have great bonds with the students and I. The athletic department is very unrestricted meaning anyone can join. I can see that the students are very involved in the sports games. We cheer and support our Sewanhaka Indians continuously. Sewanhaka just spent money on our new atrium which includes our new cafe and gym. I eat lunch everyday. Even though, the food is not best but it's tolerable. Sewanahaka tries to incorporate foods that the kids enjoy. Overall, Sewanhaka left an imprint on my life that i will never forget.
Sewanhaka has a very diverse environment, and encourages kids to behave responsibly. It contains a lot of positive and uplifting teachers, and a variety of clubs and activities to participate in. The school building itself, however, is not very comfortable to be in at times, especially when the weather is too hot!
