Soar High (Students on Academic Rise) Reviews

652 reviews
All Categories
The teachers and staff are wonderful, but the atmosphere is tense. Many students are ambitious and are there for a reason. There is not much recreational activities, there are clubs but most are focused on community service or societal issues. There is no stress relief programs integrated, such as PE or any arts programs, and those offered at the college the SOAR students are not allowed to take. If a student wants to do something outside of school its hard to schedule because of the block schedule and night classes. In many cases, students are more focused on receiving a good grade rather than learning the actual content which can lead to some predicaments. The school and academics are outstanding and being in a college helps get ready for actual university, but it will take up a lot of time and energy out of your day which makes extracurriculars hard to do.
Review Soar High (Students on Academic Rise)
The school itself is small and lacks things like sports, but if you want a drama-free experience, this place is great! The people here are really awesome. You get to know everybody. We're all nerdy and weird, but we're not nerds or weirdos per se. It's hard to explain, ha ha. But seriously, this is a school where the socially awkward kids get together and have a ton of fun together. Prepare to laugh at really bad chemistry jokes sophomore year!
The whole list of clubs/ activities includes ASB, Christian club, Class of 2017-2020, Debate club, Enviro club, iClub, Inventeam, Journalism club, Key club, Knitting club, Mock Trial, NHS, NIOT, Programming club, Purity/Abstinence club, QSA, Robotics, SOAR Ambassadors, Spanish club, Speech club, Sports club, STEM, VPAC, and Yearbook. All of these clubs have about the same level of student-commitment. The students run most of the clubs, which makes a lot of people want to join because they like the activities but don't feel as if they absolutely have to be there. Of course, each and every one of them are fun in their own ways. For example, those who like debating about topics they love might go to debate club, journalism, or maybe even mock trial. The ones who love helping others might go to ASB, Enviro club, Key club, QSA, or even NIOT. There are different clubs for all types of people. The administration support is good, but can use some improvements. Teachers assigned to administer the clubs just make sure that the activities are healthy and well-planned, but they don't really talk about the clubs outside of the meeting times. Overall, the quality and amount of clubs is great because of the involvement and bonds they form.
