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)

There are many clubs and organizations offered as this school. Some the organizations/clubs include: National Honors Society, Student Council, Math Club, FBLA, SOS, FFA, STOP, Prom Committee, and Quiz Bowl. The level of commitment for each club/organization is fairly high. We are well known for our dedication. I would say the most fun option for the students would be Prom Committee just because it is more laid back than most other organizations. Also, based on an individuals preference they should all be just as fun!
Teachers at my school are helpful, smart, and caring. All of the teachers try to help each other branch out and put more into their students and classes. Syracuse is one of the best schools around! I wouldn't have wanted to spend twelve years of education anywhere else! Whenever I struggled during school, or I missed notes, the teachers would all be there for me. They would always drop what they were doing and help. Syracuse's staff members want us to get out and apply for scholarships, and be involved in as many activities as we can!
