Steamboat Springs High School Reviews
Rating 4.04 out of 5 108 reviews
I enjoyed having classes every other day, it gave more time in class to work and to learn. The staff was kind and open to helping anyone regardless if they are a student of theirs or not. The thing I'd like to see improve is the freedom of schedule choosing without being pressured into classes that aren't required.
Steamboat Springs High School is a place with lots of clubs for students to explore. The academic opportunities are great, especially with a community college less than 15 blocks away. I wish teachers and administration would put more energy towards their correspondence with students. I have trouble getting teachers and administration to answer my emails at all. Meanwhile, they ask students to answer them with in 24 hours.
Steamboat Springs high school has so many talented and caring teachers that I was able to connect with. However the counseling department was more disappointing. For example, when applying to college and planning my class schedule I felt under-supported.
The quality of education was excellent, this showed primarily through the the variety of courses available to students at Steamboat Springs High School. The plethora of available sports, extracurricular activities, and clubs, insure that there is something for each student to get involved in, no matter their interests or passion. The staff however, truly make this a great school. I believe that teachers who genuinely care about a student's future is the key to a great education and SSHS definitely has them. I will always cherish the memories and friends that I made attending Steamboat Springs High School.
I am not in love with high school, to begin with. I transferred to Steamboat Springs my junior year. While I was excited, I can admit I was also terrified to start a new school amidst all the rumors I had heard. While I feel as though the kids themselves are fun to be around, I felt as though Education was not valued as much as it should have been. Athletes took the priority over kids working extremely hard at their Education. I was not an athlete so attending school here made me feel out of place. Overall this school was a great life experience but I would not choose to attend school here again.
I liked going to Steamboat Springs High School. They offered many different programs from computer science to home repair and engineering tech. They have a very strong science department with a teacher that has a degree in every science class offered. Steamboat has a block schedule, where each class everyday is 95 minutes, giving lots of time each week to work in class and get assistance from the teacher. Steamboat also gives out an open block, giving time to study on work.
A really great, small and immersive high school. I am lucky to have had teachers who cared so much and were able to really interact with students. I learned so much and was encouraged to take hold of my own education and reach for what I wanted.
Good teachers, good academics, just wish there was more emphasis on college preparation. Also the food is pretty good. There is a toxic climate at the high school which get bad but I think that’s just the issues with living in a small town.
Steamboat Springs High School is so unique. Nearly everyone cares so much about their general well being, health, and professional success. This school definitely produced some high functioning, motivated and dedicated individuals; some have participated in every Winter Olympics since 2006. There can be some clicks that are very exclusive, but that’s every high school. The quality of the education was unmatchable- the size of the school allowed every kid to feel like they could get help if needed. The staff cares so much about their students, and their overall experience. I’m so grateful to have been able to grow up here and have such an amazing experience.
This high school is an awesome place to learn and be involved with the town! In addition to well structured classes at the high school, students can take classes at CMC with expenses paid. There are also amazing sport and athletic programs that keep students happy and fit!
The teachers are very involved in the students and care a lot about their success. After graduating from this school I felt very ready to go into the rigorous mechanical engineering program at CU Boulder.
This is a great high school in a great location. There are not as many AP classes as other schools, and students are not set up to be competitive in college applications.
Teachers are smart and care. Lots of different classes. Great athletics. Good scheduling. Many extracurriculars.
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.
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!
My high school year has been quite impressive. We had useful resources that prepared me for college, and without them, I don't think I would be graduating this year if it wasn't for their help. Although it lacks diversity, I have made a few friends that I could relate to their at the school.
