I personally enjoyed my four years at Council Rock High School - South. It was a rather pleasant experience, and I became friends with many of the teachers/staff there. What I found fascinating was the fact that the school had a club dedicated to serving the Super Smash Bros. fan base; I enjoyed that a lot, and my time playing a prominent role in that club is unforgettable! I just wish the administration wasn't so politically biased. I learned about how left-leaning it was after having read the latter pages of the school's yearbook (2018-2019). The only well-known people that were given any positive tribute or credit for anything good they did for society were all prominent, left-winged bureaucrats who held liberal worldviews and were unsparingly critical of our president. No mention of any of the good things Trump has done for our country, but they felt the need to pay tribute to ex-president Obama and other incorrigible libs such as Pelosi. Prejudice much?

The best thing about Council Rock South has been the connections I have made with the other students. I have been a part of the award winning marching band for three years there so far, and the friendships I have made within that group of kids are everlasting. The teachers are also very helpful, and the respect I have for them is extraordinary. There are few things that do need improving, as every school needs improvement, but the details are minimal, such as the school lunches. Overall I will miss being at South when the time comes!
As a senior in highschool who has attended council rock since I was 5, I believe Council Rock is a great environment! The staff is more than willing to assist and make accommodations for all of their students. Majority of teachers love their jobs, and are very passionate. Council Rock gives their students amazing opportunities through clubs, trips and experiences. South is a beautiful building, very well taken care of with potential to allow students to learn and grow.
