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.

Great school! Teachers really prepare you well for exams and for college as well. The environment and city overall is very safe. Sports and extracurriculars are a big part of the school environment, and many students participate. Overall, the school is diverse and the student culture has a positive impact on the school. The workload helps prepare student for college. I found that upon entering college, the curriculum was not as difficult as I would have expected. The content was difficult, but keeping up with assignments and exams was not as challenging because I was used to a rigorous workload in high school.
Solon High School is an very good school. Whilst attending Solon for three years of my high school career, I have greatly improved upon my academic and college readiness skillsets. There is an abundance of helpful resources, athletic opportunities, and fun clubs. However, I would like to see more diversity within the administration and teaching staff; moreover, I would like for there to be a greater representation of Black male and female teachers. Overall, my experience at Solon High School has been a challenging, yet exciting one.
