Great Drama Department
I have seen some pretty amazing productions at this school. The school looks nice and clean, it doesn't smell like weed...it smells like a school.
If the halls smell like weed it's probably the people walking in the halls.
Just listen to the negative opinions about this school, expressed with a piss-poor attitude. No wonder their education is failing. They have a horrible attitude.
I cant wait to get out of here; too much drama and lazy teachers that cant teach very well and dumb deans. I wish i could move but i have no choices.
Woo hoo! SHS is so awesome! They provide a clearly marked green zone, so I know exactly where I'm allowed to use my cell phone! I'm posting this from the green zone right now! Me and my friends JUST love this school! And there's this one teacher that has this great MUSTACHE! Its really not as bad as most people think. Just think- our test scores are going up!
Seriously? This school is just... trash. I'm graduating this year, and all I can truly say is that I feel like an idiot with the pathetic education I've received at this school within the last four years.
I don't understand what the majority of the things my teachers try to 'teach' me and when I have a question about the problem my teacher(s) would get upset and angry, so I often go home upset and try to review the subject online since I don't understand it since they obviously don't make the effort to help us 'succeed.'
To be honest, I don't feel comfortable or safe within the proximity of this school, and I feel like I'm constantly being judged by the staff which makes me feel like I should just drop out. I've been so unhappy here within the last four years and for once I'm actually looking forward to something-- graduating.
Sometimes I tend to get upset with the higher authority at this school since they tend to question why our test scores are so low. If the test scores are so low, then it obviously means that they should do something about it like getting new staff members that actually cares and enjoy what they're doing. Having angry teachers that can't leave their own family problems at home doesn't mean that they should take it out on the students at school. We're not punching bags. Seriously, seek a therapist or something if you're unhappy at home.
Teachers are always talking about how they want us to treat them with respect and how respect is ‘earned’ and whatnot. That’s all just a big JOKE. Staffs would favor students and make ridiculous racial remarks that would make me feel uncomfortable. I don’t see why they always expect they’ll be respected when they’re making racial jokes. I don’t find it HILARIOUS, and I don’t think you’ll earned your ‘respect’ that way. This could explain why students could be so rebellious against the faculty here. I also hope that the faculty for once will actually stick up for students while they’re being bullied in that class. It upsets me so much to see how careless adults could be when I student gets bullied to the point where they’re unhappy to attend school.
Parents, I would recommend moving out of this area so your child could receive a better educational experience.
i dont care what anyone says, i love SHS!
This is a HORRIBLEE school. I don't recommend it to anyone. absolutely disgusting. I wish I didn't go here, but i have no choice. No, I'm not some loaner or something. The school has a horrible education, it's so easy. the school is always so dirty, and the faculty JUST doesn't care. it's sad really.
