Going to Syracuse high school has been great experience. The best part about going to Syracuse high is that is a smaller school so you will get to experience so much more that a larger school. The teachers are willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you are getting the most of you school year and education. With Syracuse being a smaller school we focus on sports a lot. Sports is a big thing in Syracuse there is only a few students that don't do sports and when their not doing sports they cheer on they're fellow class mates and participate in groups. The groups at Syracuse are very influential they have a S.T.O.P. group which is a group that is a drug prevention group. We also have a group called SOS ( Students Of Service) which is a group that does community service and that also take on trip far away a year. They also have FFA, Skills USA, Student Council,National Honors Society, Platform 11 ( professional choir group)

My school has very good teachers; however, they are very biased towards certain students. Since it is such a small school, it is very easy to notice. My school has very little appreciation for the arts. The drama club was dropped my senior year, which was devastating for me as this was my last year to act. Even when we did have drama, the school didn't give us any funding. They focus on sports, and if they worship them.
I thought Syracuse was a great place to go to school! It was a small town community and school so I knew everyone in my class and all of my teachers which was what I really enjoyed about going to high school here.
