There are quite a few things I like about Steamboat Springs High School. One of them being that they focus greatly on the education of their students. As a result of them being so dedicated to providing the best teaching experience as possible, they are preparing their students for education after high school. As a graduate from the high school, I can say that because of the way I was taught, I was able to excel in my current classes in college. However, if I were to change one thing about the high school, it would have to be the parking lot. It is not big enough for everyone to use. Other than that, there isn't anything else I would change.

Personally I think that SSHS struggles with a lot of things regarding their teaching staff. My experience has been that a lot of teachers just really don't want to be there at all, and therefor it affects the overall performance of the students. I have also personally experienced the administration not encouraging kids to go further with their education such as dual enrollment and instead forcing them to remain in the easy high school courses.
Very unwelcoming at first, finding niche is a struggle. No honors push, limited but diverse AP classes. Fun sports! Lack of school spirit and school gear.
