I am a big advocate for sending any child possible to San Diegutio Academy. I had one of the best educational experiences here and I wish I could go back. The teachers are so unique and work hard to ensure their students succeed and get the most out of their education. The atmosphere and social side of this school is unlike any other. With over 100 clubs there is a place for anyone at this school! One can truly find their place, friends and gain a valuable education from this institution.

I think San Dieguito Academy has an absolutely amazing atmosphere. While I haven't attended other high schools, I've been told that our school differs greatly from stereotypical schools, and I can definitely see truth in that statement. There's a lot of opportunity to make it personalized, to find ways to fit in but not conform to any expectations. In my time so far, which is three years, I've been involved in 10 on-campus clubs or extracurriculars, and they vary from rigorous academic groups like Academic Team and Science Olympiad to relaxed discussions of culture to ballroom dancing lessons during lunch. It's not perfect but there's a great amount of diversity and engaging teachers.

SDA is honestly the best school ever! It is unique, quirky, weird, and just plain awesome. It isn't your typical high school, so there isnt a very strong emphasis on sports, but they are still there if you want to participate. It is fun and engaging and it's really the people that make this school great.
