as a student who has attended sahs, i was in many classrooms and had alot of opportunities. the help you with study groups and after school programs. study halls consist of several teachers and tech ready to help you learn. of course the teacher only shows up when your ready to learn(figuritively of course). my senior year i was a cheerleader for a short period and the opportunity to do something of this nature as a male was very awesome. everyone was accepting and it made it fun. i saw alot of great sportmanship in every aspect of the word. i think the tech center was an amazing idea. it helps students learn something they are interested in and use it for career oportunities as well, while learning of course.
