Sutter High School Reviews
My daughter and son although taking all AP courses along the way at Sutter Union and at the top of their classes, were at a huge disadvantage after entering college. Sutter advanced courses are lower/ mid level compared to larger schools in CA or other states. The top AP courses can be compared to Sophmore level of large schools.
