    "Sandra Day O'Connor has been a wonderful high school for both of my girls. My oldest daughter is physically handicapped and had been in the Peoria District - they stuck her in a classroom with kids that were mentally challenged - she didn't belong there! SDOCHS has been GREAT!!! She actually graduated, on time, with her Class of 2013. Our youngest daughter hated going to grade school, but when she hit high school at SDOC... her attitude changed big-time!!! She is now a Junior and loves going to school. She is involved and rarely misses a day. When kids get to high school... we believe... you have to let them grow up and be responsible for themselves. If there were any issues, which was not often, I made them go to the teacher and deal with it themselves. I love SDOCHS!!! And so do my girls!!!"

    "Sandra Day O'Connor High School is NOT a model of excellence in education by any stretch. I agree with quite a few of the posts and reviews here that the staff and teachers are not student-centered, do a very poor job of including parents and families in educational decisions, and are often a bit rude and condescending. They do not seem to place much value on differentiation in the classroom to meet diverse student needs, and do a very poor job of supporting average or struggling students. This school has been a huge disappointment in terms of preparing students for college and in promoting 21st century skills in students, as well as in cultivating an effective student-centered, differentiated learning environment. Twenty years ago, this type of school was the norm. But in this current time of transformation in education, there are MUCH better options for students."

    "O'Connor is not a very good school. They do not focus on the students. Their staff is rude. There is high turnover of administration. Not a quality educaiton. We are looking for a good charter to move our daughter."

    "SDOHS is overcrowded and the staff does little when issues arise. Students have to eat outside standing due to the overcrowding. High theft cell phones stolen out of P.E. lockers while students are outside participating in class. They don't care if anything is stolen and make little or no effort to recover items stolen. This is been our worst experience with a high school in Arizona. Students get no help from the counselors. Schedules is messed up every year. Staff is lazy and they really need to start firing. Parking is terrible and drop-off is always slow. This school has exceeded their enrollment level for several years. More concerned with sports then with academics. Look for a charter school!!!"

    "Both of my children attended O'Connor High School. They had some really great teachers in their honors and AP classes. The general education teachers seemed more interested in teaching so that they could coach or advise a club. Sports seems to get more attention than academics by the administration and students. In looking at the other options for high schools in the area (Mt. Ridge, Goldwater or Boulder Creek) Sandra Day is a much better choice. My kids were fairly well prepared for college and would recommend that students try to get into the advanced classes for the best education."
