    Overall Experience: The only reason why I don't like this school is because of all of the cliches. There seems to be designated areas on campus for the different grades of students to hang out during break or lunch. But other than that, the school is great and so are the teachers.

    Overall Experience: School spirit is for the few, maybe because there's not too much to be proud or excited about. It is highly individualistic, considering those who are high-achieving can't achieve for everybody. Smart kids are smart, and they go to great universities. The rest of us...aren't going to have school spirit just because our friends are smart. Other than that, there's nothing else that was too special. It was a very average high school experience to say the least.

    Overall Experience: Although I've been only going to this school for 3 years, I could say that I've learned so much not only from the education board but through the teachers and friends around me. Sunny Hills High School has a wide variety of clubs and classes for interested students.

    Overall Experience: Sunny hills high school is great because they allow a week of cultural exchanges, international week throughout the week the clubs and PTA all make and food from any country and allow students to walk around and try new things. But the school doesn't realize that when they do this some students are ignorant and say they rides things to the students who tried really hard to let the other try and enjoy one's culture.

    Overall Experience: At first, I thought I had made a mistake by choosing to come to this school instead of a more "prestigious" school but over the past three years I have made so many great memories here and was able to really enjoy the full high school experience. Of course, there were endless hours of studying and an immense amount of burden and stress but I was so grateful for being in a community where we struggle together like a family. In addition, being able to go to school events such as the dances, sports games, and theatrical shows gave me and my fellow peers chances to bond and share laughs and take a break from academics and just enjoy the night. Furthermore, as a member of the Associated Student Body of our school, I was able to fully participate in school events with so much school spirit and encouragement that couldn't have left a better impression on me. As a whole, my past three years here have been a great and memorable experience that I know I could not have received at another school.
