I like the environment at SSHS. The teachers are pretty good and the food is great! The first year I went to SSHS, I made my first all As report card. I even had an A in math- something I'd never been able to do before! You can tell that many of the teachers really care. They're not just doing their jobs- they're treating us like the individuals we are! While there isn't a whole bunch of one-on-one time with teachers and their students, for the most part the learning curve isn't too steep for most students. Overall, the experience at Sweet Home High School is very satisfactory.

My favorite part of Sweet Home High School is the close knit community. Students and teachers get along well and participate in school events, sports, clubs, and community activities to make the experience more fun. I would like for my school to get better at preparing seniors for life after high school, whether that be college or going straight into the work force. Classes to help students apply for colleges/jobs, fill out scholarships, and learning basic adult skills would be extremely helpful to many students.
If your student is advanced in anyway, whether it is academically or in sports, the school will not provide what you need. For myself personally, I had to outsource in terms of my education, because my high school classes were simple and I was only offered 5 applicable AP course. Despite being promised scholarship funding for my college course, the school failed to help me enroll, pay for my courses, and allot me sufficient time to take these said course. I personally worked and paid for 24 credits of classes as a high school senior and junior, while playing sports, working, volunteering, and graduating as valedictorian of my class.
Electives are few and far between and the sports programs are highly focused on the male oriented sports. With that being said, there is only major funding for football, softball, baseball, track, and volleyball with the other sports lacking proper equipment, trained coaches, or equality in terms of sex, ability, and favoritism.
