So far, being a part of Sweet Home High School has been a life changing experience. Here, I have been able to prepare myself for college and my career through the help of some of my amazing art teachers. Not only do they assist me in finding colleges fit for my major, they critique my work in ways that allow me to build a strong portfolio in the process. I also had the chance to be a part of the cross-country and track team, and love the support and teamwork that surrounds it. Although some of the workload in AP classes are hard to handle, the teachers are helpful an understanding, giving you the chance to prepare for harder college courses in the future.

Overall, I enjoy attending Sweet Home High School. It is a diverse school with many academic and social opportunities. The majority of teachers are caring and helpful. The counselors care about their students and provide many resources to help students succeed; I was accepted into a prestigious university with their support and help. The administration is working to improve the environment of the school and these positive effects can already be seen.
Great opportunities to explore in all avenues of education whether it be academics, the arts, trade/culinary, tech/engineering, etc. The college course offering through AP and Niagara University enabled me to save money and graduate college 1 year early, which was the best decision to make for myself.
