I like the high school overall. I like the clubs and amount of diversity. I want them to fix: the math classes/ pathway, some requirements to take certain classes, having basic supplies in stock, etc.
As far as safety goes, there are police officers and staff monitoring around the school, however I often see students getting into physical fights and even vaping! I wish they would be more reprimanded according to their actions, and I wish the school was more alert and aware.
Some teachers show favoritism and are too strict, and the workload is insane! School starts way too early in the morning, students are often depressed, tired, and unconcentrated in class, including myself.
Gym class way to difficult, they mostly force you to over exert yourself or you will get a worse grade... and however many classes you miss (even 1) you have to make up afterschool- or else you get points taken off your grade! Even if its excused by a hospital or doctor! The school does get very crowded.

Academics at SBHS is really good. The school provides a variety of classes that benefit to your needs. The only reason for why I gave it four stars is because of the pre-requisites. My friend couldn't get into AP English this year because her English grade last year was ONLY one point below the pre-requisite. The counselor refused to let her take the class. Some teachers are chill and great at teaching. Some others are chill too but suck at teaching overall. Parents at SBHS are very involved at conferences lol. EVEN IF THEIR KID HAS A 95 IN A CLASS. LIKE HONESTY, THEY ASK THE TEACHERS HOW THEIR KID CAN GET A 100. GEEZ. They prepare us very well for college. I mean, the kids here are super competitive when it comes to grades. It's all anyone ever talks about. Food is okay from what I've seen. Nothing really works at SBHS, like, the bathroom air driers have been broken for years and they never put in paper towels anymore.
Overall I feel the school prepared me well for college. I not only got into a prestigious program at a reputed school but doing well. However I have the misfortune of having to learn from a teacher who was more interested in Starwars games than teaching and barely cared who is learning in the class and who is not. No wonder I ended up in a not so decent grade in his class. Some teacher would off load his responsibility to teach to the students and expect them to learn on their own, but won't budge on his tough grading. The above two teachers' grading may have impacted negatively my application to some of the toughest colleges I applied to. There has been some partiality displayed by teacher(s) coaching the band. Despite these drawbacks, the student body was quite good in demeanor and willing to learn and I had a pleasant and rewarding overall experience during my stay there.
