Stadium High School Reviews

I have had amazing teachers all four years of high school. They have supported me throughout the tough times and have created a general feeling of acceptance and safety at Stadium. There are not enough counselors at Stadium, but they work extremely hard to accommodate to the needs of nearly every individual student. I would like to see evidence of more events that spark a sense of school pride and community. There has been a lack of student involvement in social events in the past, and I would like to see the next generation of Stadium alum to get an immersive and fun experience. Overall, Stadium has been a wonderful school for me!

Stadium has a very strong academic reputation. I have taken many tough college prep classes and have felt that they will help me later on in my life. Though the classes that were not college prep were fairly easy and not challenging. The school does a good job of making sure that every student has the materials necessary for them to succeed in college, or finding a job after high school. The administration does there best to keep the students safe. There is not a whole lot of school spirit. Many students don't seem to be motivated to go to pep assemblies or cheer on the sports teams. I think that is just due to the schools urban location, and students have more going on outside of school. Overall, Stadium is a great school!
The things that I like about Stadium are the vast amounts of opportunity of classes offered. Vast options of math, science, arts, and physical education are offered especially AP classes. College credit available as well. The structure of the school is great too. There are many floors and is in a shape of the letter “U” which causes classes to be a bit spread out so students get a lot more exercise than normal schools. The class rooms are numbered based on even or odd numbers, so students would know which side to go to based on their class number. Lunches are not bound to the cafeteria and students can eat near the windows to see the beautiful view outside. There is a career center of many resources for students who are looking for information about college and scholarships. Many university ambassadors come the tell interested students more about their university.
