The school is rough, not the teaching kind of rough more like they need to upgrade technology, they also should replace things like the rest of the parking lot. You pay $40 of student fee's for the parking lot to be bad and not fixed then you pay money for prom which isn't that good and you cant go off the school for a different prom location which is dumb. Principals are iffy, they sometimes like to choose favorites and they'll tell you that they don't. They don't take bullying seriously either especially online bullying until you tell them that you're going to get the cops involved. However the teachers are nice.

During my time at Standish- Sterling High School I have realized many things. Such as there is a very good atmosphere here, there are many great teachers, and it is a very well organized school. I especially like the countless programs that you can get involve with and that the requirements for these clubs are reasonable and easily achievable. The school has a very safe and clean building that is well taken care of and I would highly recommend this school to any parent looking to send their children to.
Standish-Sterling High School was a typical everyday 2,000-3,000 student facility. It had great opportunities to expand both knowledge and freedom of what you expressed with-in yourself as a student. Many clubs (or extracurricular activities) were open to anyone who wanted to try something new and fun. Sports was a big part in our school, however even work-hard driven strength can beat the top "names" of the school. Academics was our strong point with many of early college classes that you are able to take to show your knowledge. Overall so lucky to be a part of a great Panther Country.
