Santee Education Complex High School Reviews
I would have liked this school, if it wasn't due to the fact that they shut down the Construction Academy branch, a school that I liked for the close knit relationships between teachers and students, where uniform wasn't needed because security knew all our faces and the students quite literally knew everyone's names. Our classes were never packed, and we received a lot of attention from the teachers like that, and, as I later discovered, we went through things faster than the main campus and often excelled in our subjects and where we failed, those same teachers had plenty of time to help us.
Now we are being split up into a campus that did not include us in many main events, save for the pep rally in the burning days of October. Construction had higher scores than the main campus because of that closeness, and now, it's gone.
As you can see, I am not a very satisfied student. Once from Construction, ALWAYS from Construction.
this skool is the best there is ever been is the best in lausd SANTEE ROCKS ASS MAN !!!!! GO FALCONS !!!!!! S@NT33 !!!! ONCE A FALCON ALWAYS A FALCON !!!! NO MATTER WHAT>>
Santee Education needs a lot of improvement and with the district I see ourselves getting no where! Students are failing most of their classes because of the class schedule and now the district wants the school to go into a traditional calender.
