I loved the caring and small hometown feel of the school. Over half of the faculty and staffer were Sylvania graduates themselves, and you can tell they have a genuine love for the school and students. I feel like I received a great quality education that has well prepared me for college.

It's a good school. The teachers care about their students and teach them as best as they can. The school just isn't very technologically advanced. There are only two computer labs that the whole school has to share. Teachers constantly have problems with connecting to the wifi. Also, the school isn't very diverse. Over half of the students enrolled are Caucasian. The teachers are all Caucasian. Students don't know enough about other cultures. They are in this little bubble that can promote things like racism. This can also be said about religion at the school. There is a Christian organization, but there is nothing for other religions. Schools should inform students of the world outside of where they live. Therefore, they can understand people different from them. Another problem is the lack of clubs and organizations. Sylvania only has the basics. Sylvania is overall a good school. I've learned many things while attending it, but there are a few big flaws about it.
Sylvania High School staff makes you feel like family. One of my favorite things about walking down the hallways of SHS is seeing all the smiles on every teachers face. The classes are small enough so that each student can be connected with their teachers. If I had to choose something that could use improvement at Sylvania School, it would definitely be safety. Each classroom could be in the same building instead of separated.
