While Solon High School has a very diverse staff and student body, a large majority of the teachers seem to prefer keeping their students grades up and preparing them for college over their students well-being. The education is great, but in terms of conversation and thought process, it's all we ever talk about. There's not usually a whole lot of real conversation, it's usually just, "Oh I have a 96% in [Class] I'm failing so bad" or, "I'm so tired I'm just gonna sleep in all of my classes today." and to put icing on the cake, "You got a B on that quiz?!?! Wow you're so dumb how did you even get into [Random Honors or AP Class]???? While all of this may be true, the music program is amazing and thriving. We currently have ~350 students in the band alone, and have overall 4 bands, 3 orchestras, and 4-5 choirs as well.

Amazing staff and very diverse! Food is awful and parents should be more involved. Solon HS is very good with academics but not very good with school culture and relationships. While I feel prepared for college academically I cannot say that solon HS prepared me socially for life beyond high school. They did not bother to connect with me in ways that went beyond the school environment and I do not feel that they cared for me personally. Academics are important but so are relationships and helping to make every student feel like a part of the school. Also, the administration is more concerned with test scores and being the best than checking in with kids personally. You become a number, a test score, to them.
Solon High School is a school with a rigorous curriculum that encourages students to go above and beyond in regards to academics. The focus on pushing students to do better ensures that almost every student graduating has an above-average education. The school offers many classes that you would only be found in a college and makes them accessible to students, which provides more opportunities, which I have enjoyed. I was able to take Forensics and Film Studies, which aren't typically high school courses. The other aspect of Solon High School that I appreciate is the staff. The staff I have encountered truly show a passion for what they're teaching and try to make sure their students succeed. The thing I would change about Solon High School is the inflated prices of school products. A simple lock that is 5$ at Walmart is being sold by the school for $17, while a slice of pizza is being sold for $3(A whole pizza usually $10 at most). Other than that, I have enjoyed my time at Solon.
