Soddy Daisy High School is a fantastic school. The majority of the staff is very helpful whenever you need them. The band program is phenomenal and the band director, Joshua Light, is the best teacher you could ever have. Few things I have had issues with in the school are new teachers. If there is a new teacher at the school, more than likely there will be issues because they do not understand how the school runs. That has been my only issue so far. Besides that, the school is great and I am very glad to call myself a student and will be very glad to call myself an alumni in the future!

I loved the Soddy Daisy High School theatre/Forensics program. It taught me to open up, and helped me find not only my friends, but myself as well. I loved every part of this program, from traveling to compete against other schools across the state, to performing in our own school with SNL skits. The only thing I would change about this overall experience for future Forensics competitors is space for us to practice and perform. We build our own stage in the school's band room every time we perform the skits we are so proud of. I hope for the future students Forensics is recognized and given the supplies our lovely coach, Lucy Boydston, deserves. Thank you.
I love Soddy Daisy High School! It is very easy to make friends here and at other schools, not so much. I am very involved with SGA, which is Student Government. We do a lot for the school and it is a great club. We also have FCA which I have gone to both years at Soddy! The classes can be challenging but the teachers are always willing to help out!
