    "Teachers care enough but the administration cares only about appearance. If you require any extra help as a result of ADHD, anxiety, ect. the admin won't even make an attempt to hide their agenda; running you out of the school."

    "My daughter currently attends this school as a freshman. If you look around town, you find choices, and as an "educational shopper" I've tried a few. She attended Veritas in middle school, and I'm pleased we did. Her study skills are focused, her classes were advanced, and she fit in well with the honors curriculum she chose here. Saguaro offers a large expanse of honors math and science classes, as well as the largest selection of foreign language classes in district. We came back to a public school for choices. Now keep in mind that some students in a public school aren't interested in being there, which classes they take, or if they pass. Projects given out in a class and only 4-5 students turn them in reflect poorly on the PARENTS . This isn't the responsibility of the school, but the families who send their kids there. A school cannot force a child to learn or do their homework. This school offers plenty of opportunities to succeed like honors and AP classes, and some of the finest teachers available. I shopped.. now it's my kid's turn to step up. She really enjoys the extracurriculars as well. Check out this little school, take a tour and give it a chance."

    "Teachers really do care if your student wants to learn! I agree with the statement of the front office women. Very rude and enjoy 'talking down' to students and even parents. They should be lucky they have jobs! My daughter has been there since 2007 and she's doing extremely well. Teachers care and will do what it takes to help your student but you have to help also at home."

    "My child has been attenting Saguaro since the beginning of the 2008 Fall semester. So far I am not that impressed. I do really love the choir program. However, like many high schools, all the emphasis seems to be placed on sports. Namely the football team. Ho-hum. I too think that the front office staff is extremely rude and arrogant. Which is funny actually. I don't know why they act so superior. I think more parents need to complain about their attitudes."

    "Saguaro is the 'real deal'! Saguaro is a terrific school and offers all students challenging & stimulating academic opportunities in a 'real world' diverse social setting. We wanted a great school that wasn't Scottsdale 'plastic' or shielded from reality for our daughter to be successfully prepared and transition to any college. Also, the administration is extremely supportive and has does an amazing job despite all the unfortunate events that were thrown their way. Most of the Saguaro teachers work hard and are fabulous - our daughter recently took the Arizona AIMS and exceeded all three of her AIMS tests! Last but not least, the athletic programs especially football are second to none and one of the best that the State has to offer. In life, it is all what you of make it and Saguaro can offer the tools to make your child's education a positive and rewarding life experience."
