I had a good experience at SSHS! I was challenged and feel prepared for college, and have made lifelong friends throughout my time here. Overall this has been very enjoyable!

The teachers are overall very helpful, caring, and knowledgeable! The main thing that teachers at SSHS need to work on is challenging and providing opportunities for advanced students. Lessons are catered to students that are behind, which prevents advanced students from reaching their potential.
My entire time at Steamboat Springs High School I have always felt that as a student I mattered. That my teachers were concerned with my well being and wanted the best for my future. Being in a predominantly white town and school district a large portion of english and history curriculum is spent making us aware on civil issues and historical and current racism to make us aware of problems that we do not face in our everyday life. There are a lot of opportunities to take classes as well as participate in internships which are specific interests to you due to a flexible class schedule. . I have never felt in danger at school, however there is a marijuana and vaping problem, but it is easy to avoid and does not get in the way of school if you avoid it. I would like to see a change in how the school deals with waste, we still use styrofoam trays and it is ridiculous.
