The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us in one way or another, and Santa Barbara High School students are no stranger to this. From six-hour computer screen weekdays to friendless weekends and bleary-eyed eight AM zoom calls, it is safe to say that the past year and a half has not been the traditional SBHS experience.
But what is the normal SBHS experience? Seniors and juniors can recall this time pretty well since they were on campus before the pandemic. However, our underclassmen never got that chance, as their last in-person experience was two years ago at a junior high school.
In the video, “The Class of Covid,” we explore what this means for new students. How do they feel about being at a big high school compared to their comfortable room at home? Did they like in-person school better? Or worse? What has this change from online learning been like for them?
