I am going to be completely honest with you, as a former sehs student i have to say when it comes to the academic programs, extracurricular activities, awards, and the faculty is good, but i believe there needs improvement. As for the parent involvement, it is mediocre to me because in order to keep a good school in good standing order, i believe parents should be more involed not only for recreational/extracurricular activites, but also for how they do @ school, etc. Another thing they need to also work on is educating the teens more on bullying, drugs, teen pregnancy,etc. I believe if they took just a little bit of their time @ least twice a week to address these issues to the students, not only will they be more educated & behaved, but they can pass on the information they learn now to their children one day, that'll make a huge difference. Stanhope has a lot to improve on, if they improve on these issues, not only will they make a positive impact to other schools & students, but they will be making a positive impact in overall society.
