Very Nice school over all in the good area, My Son graduated from here in 2011 and went to Penn State

Great School if you are looking for academical quality but it's full of "clicks" apparently a group of boys version of "mean girls" are ruling the social school life! Last Friday they put stick note on the back of girls students rating them while they walk on the cafeteria unaware of the prank.

This school is fake! When I attended it I thought I was achieving high scores because I was smart. Guessed wrong! I moved to a new school in Pasco and the curriculum was so much more challanging than at Sickles. I have learned alot more at my new school then at Sickles and I believe that the crazy GPA's ...  Read more

As my final year at sickles winds down, I have to say it is a great school. Sure the Ap's are pains, but our principal is a great leader and has made this school better than before. Our teachers want us to succeed no matter if you do go to college or not. They help us every five days. this is why our ...  Read more
