Only Southfield Schools would find that 4 out of 10 as exceptional. Exageration and false pride do not make a good school system. Why don't all the band programs in the whole district participate in state band festivals, because they are terrible. Their excuse is the system is racist, when they cannot ...  Read more

This school is WAY too focused and what the children are wearing then what they are learning. A lot of the student don't follow dress code and they don't seem to learn differently. The whole dress code policy id stupid. Most of the extra stuff is dumb too. Some aren't run by teachers and have no organization. ...  Read more

I am currently a sophomore at SLHS. I do not like the school one bit. The principals are always protecting the teachers. I agree with another review that says they care more about the dress code than they do the actual curriculum. The school is rude and there are way too many people who need to not ...  Read more
