I loved my time at Seward High School. I graduated in a class of 44 students, and I really enjoyed the small class sizes. My favorite thing was the fact that the student-teacher relationships had the opportunity to be stronger than those at a larger school. I really liked that class sizes were small enough so that students could receive 1 on 1 help, as well as the teachers truly caring about us outside of our class with them. The only thing that I did not enjoy was the fact that there were not enough teachers to be able to offer a lot of classes. Most of the classes offered were online. Which is a great option, I just wish there had been a way to offer those extra classes in person.

Seward High School is great for what it has to work with. Most of the teachers and staff are very supportive of their students, and truly want students to succeed. Because there are so few students it is easy to make friends and participate in lots of activities/extracurriculars.
Seward High is a great highschool full of good teachers, close knit students, and a great sports program. Although we have good opportunities for sports, our school struggles to fund an art and music program which is very disheartening.
