South Lake is probably one of the worst schools in St. Clair shores if not the worst. Many teachers aren't skilled, teachers miss numerous amount of school days.

This school like many others in SCS has gone seriously downhill because of "school of choice". Throwing open the gates to people who do not live in the shores has resulted in lower test scores and more disruptions in the classroom. If you want to take a chance with your child and be part of some cumbaya ...  Read more
