Sylvania Southview High School Reviews

In my high school career, I have been a part of three high schools. When I moved to Sylvania I quickly realized that Sylvania School District would be very different than the rest. From the very first day I started at this new high school I quickly realized how diverse the student body and administration was. Instead of going to class with a majority of caucasian classmates, I became friends with classmates from all different backgrounds including african americans and arab refugees. This became one of my favorite things about Sylvania Southview High School. It helped me appreciate the diversity of others and prepare me for life outside of high school. A major let down when coming to this school district, however, was that I felt like they were not providing us students with the tools to be college and career ready. They only brought up our futures the last semester of junior year or the beginning of senior year, when it was too late.

The school board for Sylvania Schools is made up of a clique of people who grew up in the area and haven't matured past 8th grade. They get the levies they want by threatening to fire people and cut funding. The wealthy old white people don't care so much about the schools. Southview should be a much better school than it is. The only public school in the area that should be better is Ottawa Hills, but Southview has been lacking for no reason. It has enough funding overall, but wastes it on stupid stuff. They're millions in debt because they built a football stadium they didn't need. The art and music departments are underfunded. The administration gets paid a ridiculously high amount compared to the rest of the faculty. It's pure incompetence that hurts Southview. It has the potential, but the people in charge have ruined it. They change administration so often the students don't even know who the superintendent is anymore.
For being ready to graduate high school already, I'm glad the last four years I could be with Sylvania Southview! They offer double blocked, regular, honors, and AP classes so everyone can find the perfect speed for them in a particular subject. All the teachers are also willing to help. The career technology teachers are all advanced in their field, whether its visual communications design, engineering, or auto body. Resource wise, we have a full court gym, auxiliary gym, workout room, library, mac computers, Chromebooks, and more! Next, most activities we offer are student run with a teacher advisory. We have clubs from Tea club all the way to speech and debate which all prove excellence in some way. I always see parents helping out with multiple activities from homecoming and prom to open houses. I feel safe with all the parent help and knowing we have police on staff. Southview is a helpful community full of enjoyable learning and activities in a safe diverse environment.
