Sycamore High School Reviews

I didn’t really appreciate Sycamore until my senior year, when I stopped thinking I was “too cool” for school activities. That being said, they’re omnipresent at Sycamore and they seem to believe that everyone, grades 9-12, is in love with being an Aviator, which can be extremely
overwhelming at times. As an activist and student organizer, Sycamore was not very conducive to an activist culture. However, academics were unparalleled and I made wonderful relationships with friends, counselors, and teachers alike. The administrators, however, leave something to be desired. Also, Sycamore preaches diversity constantly, but nearly everyone in my AP classes is white or Asian.

Sycamore High School prides itself on its diversity, and rightfully so. Differences are celebrated and cultures embraced. For example, just two weeks ago, the Jewish student union shared dances and delicacies with the entire school, along with clothing and music. Sycamore offers an open atmosphere where all are appreciated and cherished. The school district is also known for the span of opportunities available to the students, and how there is a place for everyone. Outside of school activities range from yoga club to a buffet eating club! Sport events can always count on the Ave Cave (cheer section) to support all teams till the very end. The most special characteristic is the students and their attitude towards school. Sycamore school district is a place filled with determined and wise students who will change the future for the better. Some of the brightest minds pass through these halls.
Amazing staff, productive environment, and many resources to help students grow and succeed! I am a graduating senior class of 2021.
