Silsbee High School Reviews

My experience has been anything but normal. Not in a bad way though. The staff here care about every student like they are their own. The atmosphere is inviting and comforting.
i would like to see a big change in silsbee starting with the administration, the school cares more about dress code than students actual education, school is just about turning in assignments most students aren't even learning anything.
I would like Silsbee High School to be more inclusive of their student´s opinions. I think it would be very beneficial because they students are who walk are experiences these rules and guidelines, therefore we are able to give helpful, first-hand advice on how to better the school.
Silsbee schools across the district have made it possible for all students to pass and each teacher is focused on the students and making it a comfortable but passable environment. Not only that, but the tolerance to bullying is 0 I personally have been able to confide in a staff member the bullying stop.
My experience was average. I enjoyed the many traditions that the Silsbee High School had to offer to the students. In the future, I would recommend that there should need to be more communication between the school district and the students. Having counselors, principles, teachers, contacting the parents and students about events coming up would be useful. Also, there should be more planning involved with the events and how they are executed. Often times it seemed like, along with no communication to the participants, that there was not much thought put into the finer detail of the plans. For example, this year all the students were required to receive new Chromebooks. The Chromebooks will not be handed out until next week, but the teachers have already assigned assignments online that are to be turned in this week. The teachers seem to not care that some students do not have other sources of completing the assignments at home. There should be more communication around the board.
It’s a very good school with great teachers that teach you to there best ability but they don’t just teach you , they become family to you . And treat you like you actually matter , and the school is full of school spirit and that’s what I love about for . Very professional school
I like how teachers are their for students if they need help with any work, or anything. I also like how there's a lot of opportunities at Silsbee High School. However, certain things like be honest with students, and getting everyone involved on activities could improve better rather than only focusing on sports.
Overall Silsbee High to me was probably no different than any other small town school. As any other student there are things I would like to see change such as the food that’s served in the cafeteria but there are things I would like to stay the same such as the dedication that some teachers have towards their students.
Silsbee High School could be a lot better honestly. We could use more kids paying attention in class. They could also focus more on academics then they do on sports. The teachers could tech for us to actually learn and not for Starr.
I have participated in gifted and talented, honors, AP, advanced classes, varsity choir, played soccer, volleyball, ran track, powerlifted, and took place in many programs and showcases within our district and school. I can honestly say that we have some of the most dedicated academic and sport related criteria in the state.. in my opinion:) The teachers are excellent and do their best to make all four years at silsbee high school as enjoyable as possible. Our sports are mind-blowing, and I enjoyed every single second of it. The 2019-2020 super intendent has brought so much greatness to the table. The students, staff, admin., my teammates and classmates have made Silsbee high school, and Silsbee isd one of the most amazing places to be.
Silsbee had a couple bat issues but over the break they got rid of them and kept students in their eyes for their safety and they have a good environment and they have good sports. They have really good Teachers and a really good program.
My experience at Silsbee High School has been fairly good. I am very grateful for the unique programs my school has offered me. I have taken AVID, a college preparation course for four years, and will graduate with an associates degree since I have also taken dual credit college courses through the Early College High School program. The teachers and administrators are very kind, and I feel they genuinely want to make my school the best it can be. If I could change anything, I would shift my school’s focus away from sports, to other deserving areas I feel get no attention. For example, when one of our sports teams accomplishes something, it is posted on all of the school’s social media pages, but when art students place in statewide competitions it goes unrecognized.
My time at Silsbee High School was amazing! The environment is very easy-going and the teachers are real easy to communicate with. Also, almost all of the students that attend the school are very friendly and are always willing to lend a helping hand.
The school is great. Has a very good learning environment overall, though sometimes it can get overwhelming but that is to be expected. The teachers are great and very welcoming.
Through my four years of high school many things have happened and changed. The school has always revolved around the athletes, that is one thing that has remained the same. Our academics are not the best, I have had teachers that will give students a passing grade simply for just attending their class and no work would be done, thanks to teachers like that, I am struggling with knowing the basics of a certain subject. Teachers will also show favoritism, our school is known mostly for sports and teachers are aware of that. Football players, basketball players, and even baseball players can get away with anything in this school. teachers will always give them good grades so that they can continue to play their sports and give our school a good reputation. Other organizations like art club, yearbook, and color guard will not get the same funding for their resources because most of our money goes towards the athletic program.
Silsbee High School is unlike any other school because it has its own uniqueness but it isn't always too great. Our school is revolved around powerful parents of students and we lack the amount of staff. Freshman year the teachers were so nice and caring my first year and it went by in a breeze. I was accepted into a ECHS program which enabled us to take college classes during high school to be ahead on our game, everything was great. Sophomore was my worst year due to the tragedy of of hurricane Harvey here in SETX, we never attended school until late September. Everything felt hectic and stressful that year, many of us students and ECHS suffered. Junior year was a bit better there was still the case of teachers ready to leave at the end of the year. Soon a great amount of our Counselors left and caused a small amount of mayhem to students' schedules during Junior and beginning of Senior year. Now we have a smaller amount of Counselors that are new and actually care about us.
sports and the atmosphere is very friendly, we are involved in a lot of groups. The campus is very involved and the classes are friendly, the amount of hard work we put in gets us to achieve our goals and set our career paths for the future. No other school is better than the Silsbee High School campus, we strive for greatness and that's all that matters.
