As a freshman for this school. I do see its perks and disadvantages. The school staff is decent but most are coaches that had to get a teaching job so they could coach sports. It seems that the school is very sport rounded and minded. The classes are fine. But some have a lack of passion to teach students and see them learn. I enjoy the selection of electives. The Band is my highlight of the day cause it's the class that can form a person's life for highschool and show the musical side of things.
I am a student of Seneca Highschool and have been for three years. I wouldn't recomend this school to anyone if they had the option to pick their own school. The lack of depth in the schools programs makes thing bland learning wise. The school is based upon sports, not education. There is absolutely no organization. If I could go to a different school, I would. None of the classes are a challenge. I don't find myself being pushed to learn anything new. The rules are quite bias and illogical. A very large portion of the teachers are coaches that lack experience as a teacher. I find the only reason they are only teachers is beacuse they want to be a coach.
