The teachers have a strong bond with the students. They don't let them get behind on their work. There have been many times where I have stayed after school with my teacher in order to catch up on work. The environment that the students give is also very welcoming and friendly. Although I did not know anybody when I entered Solorio, I made a lot of friends and I'm now very comfortable. There are many extracurriculars that the student can do after school. Nobody gets left out, because theres a club for everyone. For example, I am currently in an environment, kpop and robotics club.

The school is very good as it was recently opened a few years ago, and it only seems to get better every year. I highly recommend that students go there because the teachers are awesome!
I love Solorio as a community, everyone is close and everyone supports each other at events and games. Teachers are very helpful and understanding in class by giving support on all tests and assignments. Staff members are all willing to help with anything you need. Coaches are very devoted into turning students not only into great athletes, but great people as well.
