I have had 3 students at SLHS since 2009. In those 5 years, SLHS has gone through 3 or 4 principals. The last principal was horrible & the current principal is useless.

I am a freshman in High School and I went to Southern Lee High for the beggining of this year and I can say that it is one of the best schools I have ever attended.

When Hans Lassiter was there, It was a great school. Now it's slipping.... Personal experience!

My son came to Southern from a private school. Since going to Southern he has gone from C's to A'S and B'S. He is happier and is more mature than he was last year . He has had lots of support from the staff at Southern Lee and loves it. I think Mr Lassiter does a great job and am proud of this school.

Great school, wonderful experience for our daughter. Senior year and we're expecting the best! Kids respect and like principal- he knows many by name, often sits down to lunch w/them.

From our experience excellent academic programs, much better for us than Lee Senior. My son feels like he is a part of something great and that he is important unlike at Lee Senior where he was just a number in my opinion. Best thing we ever did was open another high school. My hat is off to all the ...  Read more

They don't take care of serious issues. They seem to be ignorant of students problems.
