Signature School Reviews

70 reviews
All Categories
Signature School is not for everyone. Its academics are very rigorous and time consuming. Because of the high diversity, the student body leans overwhelmingly left politically, and could be isolating for someone who doesn't. However, this problem shrinks as one's class ages and students grow closer. If you are a liberal-minded and academically advanced individual in search of a tight-knit community of others like you, Signature is a good fit.
Review Signature School
As is the #9 school in the country Signature is a good school if you are willing to work for it. It gives much freedom such as no dress codes, attending classes in different buildings, and activities you wouldn't get the chance to do at other high schools. With a very rigorous course load and a fast-paced learning style with both AP Seminar and IB Diploma curriculums, students have been known to study an average of 5 hours a night and as a result, score in the highest test score ranges in AP, IB, ISTEP, etc. With small class sizes and only 350 students, the student to teacher interaction is phenomenal and the atmosphere is pleasant with a sense of intimacy and being able to know every student in your grade and possibly even the entire school. Everyone at Signature respects one another and has had no history of discipline problems. If you are doing poorly at this school, attend a different high school. It is more important to have a higher GPA at another school than attend this school.
Signature School is a school of diversity that encourages students through acceptance. It exemplifies a community of involvement in a culture of collaboration. Different cultures, religions, and race can come and pursue their passions in science, sports, math, and the arts in a place that helps us to achieve more together.
