Don't let the state of Indiana's "A-F" rating system fool you. You can't judge quality (or genius) by a letter grade. ( Remember, Albert Einstein, failed math before he was recognized for his genius.) South Side High School offers a smaller student body, so your child will not be "lost in the crowd." ...  Read more

South Side HS is not what you've heard, it just tends to get a bad reputation. There are many intelligent students who are talented in many areas. The community is welcoming--there is something for everyone. The academics can be as rigorous (or lack of) as you want them to be, the same goes for extracurriculars. ...  Read more

As a parent of 4 South Side graduates, (1999-2005) I have nothing but praise for this school, its faculty, and its students. The programs existing in the school are challenging, providing as intense an education as a student chooses to pursue. The diversity of the student body and its ability to work ...  Read more

As a parent of two SSHS graduates (one of whom was salutatorian) I think highly of the school. As for preparing students for the future ethnic blend of our country, the school is the 4th most diverse in the nation. (Our state universities pale in comparison for diversity.)Another unique feature of SSHS ...  Read more

As an early '06' graduate I'm completely happy with my dad's choice to send me to South Side. At South Side there were so many different activities and coursesa made available to me.

South Side offers more opportunities than any other school I've ever been to. I transferred to three different schools in the area, and South Side was without a doubt the best fit for me. The teachers are challenging and supportive, and the administration really works to make sure that schooltime is ...  Read more

The academic standards of South Side are at a high level of excellence. The overall graduation rate reflects that. The availability of extracurricullar activities is there if the students is willing to participate. The activities are only as good as the students and the sponsors coaching/teacing. (What ...  Read more

As a recent South Side graduate, I can say that this school offers, unequivacably, the best general education in the area. I am currently a student at a top-ranked research university, and I have no doubt that the unique opportunities that South affords--including, but certainly not limited to, the IB ...  Read more

I graduated from South in 1999, and feel that this is one of the better schools around. Where else can you find the diversity, support, and committment that South Side offers? Because it is such a diverse school, the level of parental interaction; as well as, teacher interaction, is phenomenal. After ...  Read more
