  • my daughter attends sonora high school, she is in the medical career academy. great program to offer. the medical field is and will continue be a high demand career. she is also in the sports program, sonora high school keeps her busy and on her toes to be the best she can be. caring and very knowledgable teachers. the counselors and career guidance teachers are there for the students. counselors guide the students to get to college. students are very friendly. the indoor campus is a plus. excellent school to attend. there were no worries that the sonora staff could not handle while the bomb threat was in process. as long as the staff are prepared for these types of situations and work together with the law enforcement, these students are safe. the students are their future, they would not put these children in jeopardy. they handle the situation well. this could and has happened in different places of the state and country. Sonora is a safe place to attend school for your education. I also graduated from this high school.

  • I attended Sonora High School my freshman and Sophomore years, the teachers we below average, because of all the threats toward this school for bomb threats. One incident especially when a student brought a quarter stick of dynamite to school in attempt to sell it. My parents pulled me out and I then attended fullerton high school. That is the best school to send your child to.
