On Sports & Fitness: The sports at Sherando are big. Everyone goes to sporting events. The spirit is alive and it's easy to be a part of. The faculty is also very involved in all sporting events.

On Overall Experience: This is truly a great school and overall it's wonderful. I especially love when at events such a the pep rally's, everyone comes together as one and represents the school.

On Extracurriculars: There are many clubs to join, however, some should be more welcoming to students so they will join. Some clubs are unorganized while others are very organized. Some clubs are laid back while others are strict. One thing about all the clubs is that students feel like certain clubs are for certain people and they feel intomidated by it.

High School Senior

On Student Culture & Diversity: There is unfortunately a lot of peer pressure at this school in all types of social groups. Some of the peer pressure is good but a lot of it is bad. There are many different "cliques" and they all have their own form of peer pressure. There are also many people that try way to hard to fit in with the right crowd.

High School Senior

On Health & Safety: It's mostly good. The school nurse is wonderful and caring. I feel completely safe in this school the teachers do a good job handling situations.
