SOAR High School stands for Students On Academic Rise, which is precisely its promise to its students. They offer a unique opportunity that is a once in a lifetime occurrence. My experience these past two years at SOAR High School have been memorable. SOAR High School isn't just an all academic school, but a school that is thoughtful of its hard-working students by establishing activities such as dances, pep-rallies, and holiday events for everyone to enjoy. The academics, administrators, and teachers are more than merely people who teach. They engage with their students' lives outside of school, which establishes reciprocity with the administration and student. Overall, everything is excellent in this prestigious school, from academics to diversity.

I had a great experience at Soar High School! I think it really prepared me for a 4-year university. Also, once I graduated, I had an AA degree at 17! Additionally, I was able to graduate with a B.S in Health Administration by the age of 20 because I had 95% of my GE classes completed. SOAR was a great program with many resources and I would highly recommend it!
What I enjoy the most about my school is how the teachers and staff do their best to assist students. They encourage and motivate their students so that they can succeed not only in high school, but in college as well. I also admire how they have so many different clubs and activities that students can engage in and become more active in the school community. I love how they do their best to make going to a dual enrolled school enjoyable; they want their students to still have the opportunity to participate in normal high school functions. Overall, I enjoy my school and I am eager to see what my sophomore year at SOAR High School has to offer.
