SRHS provided my with a pleasant environment that, I feel, provided me with the experience to grow, learn and explore. This school had many inclusive programs to get the student body active in areas of sports, the arts, the community and overall kindness. The staff are amazing people who truly care about their students as well.

I think that the education is very high quality, especially for the upper level classes such as AP and honors courses. I think that it is an overall positive environment. I think that the teaching of students taking general classes could be better.
Not every teacher appears to be qualified to do their jobs. Many are good, but it is the bad ones that particularly stick out. The school has become a lot more organized than it was my freshman year. I believe that it will soar to new heights if it continues at this pace.
