Clarkstown South High School is definitely an optimal public learning experience. It provides excellent education programs and out of school extra curriculum activities. If there was one thing I would change it would be the time when the first period begins. I understand that it is for the bus schedules so they can get the middle and elementary schools in too, but when you have some students waking up at five thirty in the morning it can lead to a lot of damge over time.

South high school have given me an great high school experience. From fun school events like sports games, to meeting amazing teachers, I have grown immensely over the past 3 years. I have been pushed outside my comfort zone and challenged for the better. I would like to see more overall school spirt and participation among the students.
I have had extensive experience in extracurricular activities. I was on the executive board for our schools DECA chapter, I was a varsity cheerleader for four years and captain of the team for one, I played softball and I also joined clubs like the Italian Club to celebrate my heritage, and the Assets Leadership club. There are so many opportunities and a place for everyone when it comes to extracurriculars. There are fun options like art clubs and bowling clubs and there are academic driven clubs like Mu Alpha Theta. One thing thats cool about this is that since everyone is so close with their friends, when one person joins a club usually everyone gets involved. There is alot of positive influence.
