    This year will be my senior year at SHS, and I feel confident in saying that while SHS is not perfect, it could also be alot worse. Although you might hear otherwise from other students, the academics are really very good. Among the major issues are administrative issues and the fact that oftentimes, more emphasis is put on sports (mostly football) than on academics or on the arts. Sturgis High School boasts many ecellent teams such as swimming and cross country, although the football team in recent years has left something to be desired. SHS has an award-winning band and aazing teachers, and i am thankful to have spent my four years here.

    I have taught at 8 different school both public and private and this is by far the best. The administration really cares about both the teachers and the students, there are more activities every year and more opportunities every year. I will be here for a long time. The students are great the teachers are great, and the community is great.

    i do not enjoy going to school here! If you're not in a sport, you are an outcast, and football dominates over all! the academics stink, and i'm not fond of the principle, however hard he may try.

    After having two children attend Sturgis Schools, I would say that they lack in every aspect of education. They rank below average in writing, and are abysmally average in math, reading and science. While most teachers are competent, the administration is sub-par and lacking in almost every aspect. Dishonesty and good old boy rules abound in this cliquish, overwhelmingly white community, where money is key to all doors, and opportunity.

    This school has always prided itself on academics, but has fallen behind the rest. The arts program is neglected, although the teachers are fantastic. Sports are the king in the school and if you aren't an athlete, forget it.

    In my four years at SHS, I was given many oppertunities to grow not only as a student but as a person. I feel greatful for all that was given to me. The staff was always willing to help with a acedemic problem, or a personal one. I must mention that if you have the oppertunity to take a class with Brand, Haylett, Gorsuch, Dickey, or Miller you must. These are not just gifted teachers, they are lifelong mentors and friends. I do think that SHS could improve from an administrative point. My only wish is that SHS become more student friendly when it comes to decision making processes.
