I like how most of our teachers genuinely care about you and your education. If you get involved in more than just sports, school will be really fun. I've enjoyed my four years of high school. I believe that Southeast is #1 overall. We have a really good principal, Russel Keene. He makes sure that we are enjoying school and he really makes sure that we are on top of things. Our assistant principal, Jan Smith, and our counselor, Sydney Ethridge, are sooooo helpful. They really care about us and are making sure that we are college ready.
This school is amazing! I love the friendly and helping staff! The students know each other very well. Teachers made sure I did not fall behind and that I knew everything being covered in the class room. The administrators helped me to be fully prepared for college once I graduated. I will cherish all the memories I made at this wonderful school.
