I graduated from south high. It was a great experience. You meet people from all different backgrounds and situations. And as for no walls, if you want to learn, you can learn. Period. And if it is hard, most teachers are willing to put in the extra time if the student is also willing.

Some consider South High to be ghetto and full of failure, but it is so much more than that. South High has the most AP courses offered in the city, and additional ones are hosted online through VHS. The school offers a variety of sports such as track, cross country, basketball, field hockey, tennis, ...  Read more

South High is a wounderful school! It has small accadamy's for the students to learn better and feel safe. Other schools should take a look at South and learn from them!
