    I'm currently a senior at STA and the past four years have been an amazing experience due to the endless experiences available. There are a multitude of clubs, sports, and other events offered that allow you to branch out of your comfort zone or hone in on your passion. STA is pretty well-known for our outstanding sports teams, but our academics are just as impressive. The courses adequately prepare you for college and the guidance office is very welcoming and always willing to answer any questions you may have. I may be slightly biased, but this is an amazing school to attend during the best four years of life!

    STA is famous for their achievements in every sport and the high accessibility to recruits; however, STA passes the academic standards with flying colors! The faculty here at STA are helpful and caring. Teachers stay after school or even arrive before school starts in order to help their students. They are all highly qualified for their jobs as well. Fortunately, I have had some of the best teachers every single year, especially for the AP-level courses. What also draws you in at STA is the community you join once you take the entrance exam. As you step in the school on your first day, you are a Raider. You'll always be a Raider!
    I love the atmosphere the teachers and students bring. This is such a spirited school! The sports are insane and so entertaining to watch. The safety is one of the best. The outdoor hallways makes for a more enjoyable school day. Sometimes sports teams get special treatment inside the classroom. Top of the line technology and gorgeous classrooms.
