Anonymous, Student, Santa Susana High School, Class of 2016

Santa Susana is a great high school that I would recommend to anyone. It is one of the best in the city and there is no other school like it. This school is accepting and will make anyone feel welcome. It is an environment where students are allowed to be themselves without fear of judgement. Academics are great and the teachers really care about the students. A variety of classes are offered in all fields of interests and there are always activities going on.

I would not recommend attending Santa Susana High School if I had the choice. I love the school, I love the students, and I adore all the teachers I've had, but for all of its glory there is a huge downside- we have no sports. To some students, this means a sigh of relief as they can go through their four-year experience without the 'jocks and cheerleaders' cliches of every high school movie ever made. However, I personally feel like I missed out. Playing a sport would have been an outlet for fitness for me, as well as providing a way to build team skills and meet close friends. Plus, Santa Su really doesn't have many opportunities to show school pride, because we have no sporting events to go to. I don't regret my stay at Santa Su in any way, as I've made friends who are very dear to me and have gotten to meet some incredible individuals dedicated to the lives' of their students. I only wish I had gotten to experience nights of cheers and yelling and huge crowds and the exhilarating feeling of being in the thick of a tied game with minutes to go.
