So I just recently graduated from this school and yes it has some sever issues regarding arguments and fights. I do have to say though, all you have to do is get past the hardships of freshman year and do well so you get put in the higher level programs. Those teachers care and actively interact with ...  Read more

I attended this school for 4 years. I appreciated the diversity of the school. The school building itself could use some updating, but the students and teachers were generally lovely. There were some lackluster students, but they were usually dealt with.

Wonderful with excellent teachers! School is really diverse and accepting of people of all different walks of life, religion, race, sexuality and more. Students have low tolerance for bullying, and most would step in if they saw it occurring, but it doesn't occur very often. Wonder AP, IB, and honors ...  Read more

Consider the age of the posts below. I wonder if this school has tanked in recent years. I too had heard a lot of hype about it. The parent post from 02/26/11 resonated most closely with my opinion. We are trying hard to move out of this school region. We hired a professional counselor to deal with all ...  Read more

I'm currently at this school as a freshman, and frankly I don't understand the hype about this school. There's so much arguing and fighting between students, I have several teachers who really don't care, or get frustrated with a student not understand very easily. I'm ready to leave this school already.

My son has gone to schools all over the world, including international schools in Sri Lanka, Vietnam, and the UK. He has said on many occasions that the teachers he has at South are the best he has ever had in any school and he has attended excellent schools. He says the teachers are interesting as well ...  Read more

I have had 3 sons graduate from the school and the first two were well prepared for the work required of them in college. We will find out about the third this year, but I don't expect significant problems. Each had extensive involvement in extra curricular activities that varied from vocal and instrumental ...  Read more
