The IB program at Sebastian has given me what I have always needed- a challenge. I have formed meaningful personal relationships with all my teachers and have been taught a different way of thinking about the world. Although IB students tend to be isolated within the "IB bubble " I find this more of a blessing than a curse. It provides students with a positive close-knit peer group. I have thrived here and I will miss it terribly.

I only attended this school my senior year. I was put in the honors program where I took two AP classes and the rest were honors or elective. Maybe it was because I was a senior or maybe it was because all the smart kids were in IB but the AP program was a joke. I know most of the kids in my AP Lit class where also going to retake the AP Lang exam because they failed the first time. Also the counselor I had was hardly ever in her office. I think it's ridiculous that I always had to chase down my counselor. When she was there I felt rushed. I don't think it's smart for counselors to be divided by academy because of course the honors counselor will be really overburdened. Still I deserved to have someone who actually cared whether I got into college.
I love SRHS because my daughter enjoys going there and the teachers are great!
Unless your in the band or involved in sports or IB don't expect anyone to care. The teachers are awesome but the guidance counselors are a joke. They have no optional programs if your not satisfied with the school. No graduating early they don't know anything about that. Every year I've been there they changed the schedule I swear every single year. How are students supposed to adapt to that? I strongly suggest Indian River Charter High School. They really work with their students. As for Sebastian it's all about money.
love the school so far. my son is a freshman.the one problem is the attendance thing. i checked him out of school early one day and still got a automated phone call asking me to call the school. well i was the one who checked him out. when you are out sick there is a number to call your child out sick but that annoying phone call about the absence still comes that night so whats the point of having the call in system?? other than this great school so far. we have just been here since jan. 15th.
Wonderful school. Great learning environment. My children are very satisfied and so am I.
My children were all very well prepared for college when they exited HS. They succeeded in obtaining Bright Futures scholarships and have received atletic scholarships. The teaching staff is extremely accessable to parents and open to communication as is the administration. The athletic department continues to expand it's programs which is already quite extensive. I am pleased with the education and high school experiences my three children received at SRHS.
My brother was in the first IB graduating class and has since graduated from the Naval Academy and become an officer. My two other brothers were involved in the NJROTC program and both have joined the Marine Corps. I am currently enrolled in the MYP and NJROTC program. This school is surreal the teachers are so involved and have time to pay attention to each individual student. There are numerous after school activities and opportunities to get involved. SRHS is the best high school I have ever seen.
My son is very happy with the school and has come out of his shell thanks to leadership supported extracurricular activities.
My son graduated SRHS last year. He had a great high school experience there. They have excellent sports programs football soccer for male and female swimming baseball and more. State of the art audio/visual classes which my son was enrolled. An excellent honors program called I.B. with very involved teachers. This area is growing so fast and enrollment has exceeded capacity even though SRHS was considered a big school when it was built 6 years ago. But still the teachers are invested in their students success.
