SOUTHSIDE High School is a wonderful institution for learning. I have 3 children in this district, one who has already graduated, one who is in her senior year and one who will begin next year. I have always felt my children received a top notch education here! Most teachers were helpful and caring. ...  Read more

Currently, I will be going into my sophomore year at SSHS. Lots of the teachers are very good, however you do see some teachers who aren't as good. They have a huge amount of extracurriculars, and the food is better than the middle school. Kids have more freedom, as you are allowed to wear hats, carry ...  Read more

Excellent in all ways. Great principal, teachers and kids. Excellent program and the scores you report are way off.... SSHS is tops with a Regents diploma rate of 99%. Best integrated district in the country.

I'm currently a senior at South Side High School and do not yet have the benefit of hindsight as a graduate. Just a few comments however, the I.B. program, despite the fact that those who are diploma candidates have moments where they approach the edge of sanity as a result of sleep deprivation, is ...  Read more

I attended South Side High School and graduated in June 2001. It was an excellent school and the teachers are great! There are a lot of good programs and classes to choose from. I believe my experience there has made me the person I am today because the teachers were really great and I learned so much ...  Read more

I attended South Side High School between the fall of 1997, and the spring of 2001. While I struggled with the usual 'teenage' issues while I was in attendance there, I cannot deny that the teachers and administrators at the school worked very hard to make the school a comfortable and safe place. ...  Read more
