Several family members graduated from here many years ago, when it WAS a good school. The school is not what it used to be. Parents aren't involved because the way the kids are left 'behind', and some are treated much differently than the preps. Everyone see's it, but no one admits it. They glaze

Kids with mental handicaps, as my child are ridiculed, made fun of, and called names, and the staff/administration blew it off, saying 'they're kids and it happens all the time'. It's ridiculous that the staff and principal take that sad mentality. Read less

I am a 2002 alumnus of South Harrison High School and found it to be exceptional. The smaller class sizes provided me with more individualized attention than what some of the larger schools in the county would have.

I am also an alumni of South Harrison and feel that the last reviews do not give an accurate account of the school. Teachers do care and will help you if you ask for help.

I was a student at SHHS and I must say that most of the teacher's seem to be along for the ride. They have a very easy job and will keep it until they reach retirement. They love the smart kids because they are 'easy'. I had teachers that saw me failing, saw me depressed, and so on and did absolutely

I was never involved in extracurricular activities because I lived so far away from the school. I think kids there need more help being involved, getting parents involved, programs for disadvantaged students (which would be about the whole student body) and more training for teachers. Read less

I am a graduate of shhs and have several brothers and sisters who graduated from this school. My nephew just graduated last year. My son is currently a sophomore here.

I'am a formal student of this school. It sure needs some improvement. With teachers. The football programs should not be every thing in the schools and run every thing else. The new principal is a great person but it will take more than him to get the job done. I think that teacher should have to change
