School Reviews

5   5/10/2010
I absolutely loved attending this school. Though students will always say the true SDA spirit is beginning to fade as the district attempts to alter the unique 4x4 schedule and implement new rules which affect the high level of student freedom, the other high schools in the area just can't compare. The facilities themselves are not nice, they are old, but completely endearing once you have attended this school. Perfect for people who are into music and arts, not so much for anyone looking for a sporty school. Excellent teachers as well.
