Excellent learning environment! There are so many choices of clubs at the school like from chest club to Key club. What sickles is really good at is building up character and preparing students for college and most important life. At sickles high school the teachers do their best to help you succeed and push you enough so that you reach your full potential. The past four years at this high school has really shaped me into the person I am today, I have learned so many things from my peers because of the peer to peer discussion in every class. All of the administration has done their best to provide a safe learning environment and gone out of their way to build trusting relationships with the students.

I have had an amazing experience at Sickles High School! The teachers at this school are unmatched and work their hardest for their students to get a great education. The study body and overall atmosphere is amazing and such a good environment to learn in! I have participated in Varsity Cheer, but all the sports offered are very competitive. I would definitely recommend Sickles for a great high school experience!
I loved every single year at Sickles High School! My favorite thing was absolutely playing basketball for my school. I loved being in Friendship Club, where I have been able to work with some of the most amazing students. I can honestly say that I would not change a single thing! I have some of the greatest memories because I was lucky enough to go to Sickles High School for my entire high school career.
