Sunnyvale High School Reviews

120 reviews
All Categories
The school has a good academic program and classes are usually 15-20 people, which is really nice. The building is modern and a lot of the teachers are chill and will give you advice on different things if you ask for it. Oh, and teachers with keurigs? They're the GOAT. But...there are only 3 languages (2 of which are taught by 1 teacher), there's no drill/dance team, no orchestra, little care about or funding of the STEM program (which means few students handling tools have been OSHA certified), and teachers often babysit classes that they're forced to teach, meaning the classes are a waste of time for everyone and simply annoying. HOSA is actually a really well taken care of program, which is good. Football has a really high priority and a lot of staff, but there's little involvement in soccer, tennis, etc. (there isn't even a lacrosse team). Overall, the school is nice and pretty average, but nothing really sticks out. Also, spirit days are kind of a joke.

I wish that I didn't have to rate Sunnyvale this low but after my experience here, I had to be honest and give a genuine rating. The students and facility are incredibly biased and favoritism is quite evident as to which student receives more praise based on who their parents are, or simply just by their popularity. Sounds childish right? You'd think this wouldn't happen in high school but apparently so. It's especially more apparent in extracurricular activities such as band, choir, and/or theatre. Now, I'm rating it two stars because the ONE good thing about Sunnyvale is that IF you meet the right people, they'll make your experience worthwhile. Due to the fact that Sunnyvale is such a small school, there really aren't many opportunities when it comes to classes. Many teachers slack off and don't CARE enough to prepare their students for the reality of the outside world (for example, college). I've attended Sunnyvale for almost 11 years. Take advice from the experienced.
Although I made good friends and had fun in the band (GO SRPMB), I feel that Sunnyvale only deserves the rate of average. The school is much too focused on hiring coaches rather than actual teachers. This leads to many of the coaches "teaching" classes that they do not care about. Teachers like these hardly teach and leave students confused and without a basic understanding of the subject. All in all, I would give Sunnyvale a much higher score if they focused on hiring teachers that actually have a passion for teaching. (fyi this is not about every coach teacher; some of the coaches are awesome, but the majority are awful teachers.)
