My experience at Sickles High School included many ups and down, with an overall average rating. While Sickles is an A-rated school and offers an array of vigorous academic courses and resources, administration and staff are very unhelpful and do not properly ready students for college and careers. Although, there is a large emphasis on sports, school culture, diversity, and clubs/activities at Sickles, and I found it fairly easy to get connected within a group. Sickles provided me with an adequate education that regardless allowed me to further my education at the University of Florida.
Sickles had its ups and down. The principal was always great along with the administration. Teachers were for the most part amazing. I loved the pep rallies and the spirit weeks. Kids were always hyped and made school functions like homecoming, sports games, and general moral, that much brighter. I’m glad to call Sickles High School my (soon-to-be) alumni!
