    Overall Experience at Saydel High School: Reflecting back on my 4 years at Saydel, I don't think I would choose this school to come back to. There is too much emphasis on football over every other sport, club, etc. and the initiatives to increase academics isn't very strong. Football is extremely favored over anything else in school, and other programs don't get what they need because football takes everything. Although the principal and school board are trying new grading and teaching systems, students are not happy with the changes and therefore, they do not care as much about academics as students in high school should.
