High school is a great way to learn and begin to grow for college. Spotswood is small, so you are able to know you teachers more. There is more attention being shared with smaller classes. The teachers care and want you to graduate within 4 years. You actually have to try to fail. With small school, you know people and your peers. Clubs are especially great for this, because teachers get involved in after school activities, too. You learn to collaborate in groups, work independently, socialize with peers as well as your superiors. Being able to talk to your higher ranks is very important as well as the work you will share as you work in groups. High school help you prepare to be strong and confident to face the challenges in college.

It’s a great place with a great community. It’s somewhat small with 180-200 students per grade. This forms a great community where everyone knows everyone. The teachers are really nice. Classes somewhat vary. Some, challenge you to a reasonable level while others are not as challenging. Sports are great and expanding, recently even adding a volleyball club that will become a team. The clubs offer the students a chance to be more involved in the school, however, it is missing some clubs that most schools have, like a robotics or clubs pertaining to certain career paths. This is one of the safest schools since the police station is the building right in front of the school. Food served is managable. They offer a sandwich station every day where they can heat it up for you. On Wednesdays there is a pasta station. These tend to be good meals but the lines for them are very long. Other than that the food is average.
The teachers at SHS are just awesome. I feel I'm ready to move on to college. My counselor is always available and so helpful. The environment in the school is safe, welcoming and comforting. My class challenge me while being fair. I feel like there are adequate activities and the teachers and admin are highly involved in all activities.
