Read what parents are saying about South High School
South has been a great experience. It's smaller than other schools and the teachers and administrators know and care about the kids. Students also get great opportunities to participate in school life via sports and clubs. And our daughter has also gotten to know students from around the world, which has been an invaluable and unique experience. The academics have been challenging, and AP classes interesting, relevant and engaging. I strong recommend South to students and parents who are looking for a place where they're supported, engaged, and can have an interesting experience in a culturally diverse environment. Read the Newcomers by Helen Thorpe to get some of the flavor of the school

My daughter has had the most wonderful experience at South High School. The ratings are not reflective of the amazing learning environment at this school. My daughter chose to leave a highly selective private school to attend South, our neighborhood school. The opportunity to get to know kids from all over the world and from all socioeconomic backgrounds has been such an enriching experience. South is a very inclusive school with teachers and administrators that truly care. Their AP classes are just as challenging as the school my daughter transferred from. My daughter was just accepted to a very selective (13%) top tier liberal arts college and South made all the difference in making this happen.

We came from a terrible middle school experience and have found that under the leadership of Dr. Waters, all of the teachers have been wonderful/caring mentors to our daughter. The sense of community is very strong and we love the international aspect of the school. Much more like a real world experience!
