I enjoy SF! There's a lively environment and most of the teachers are SO amazing! I wish there were more students involved in the activities that occur around the school. You don't see a lot of diversity, but there is competition. The teachers are super nice and easily connect with the students.

From my experience at South Fayette, I have met some of my closest friends through the band program. I have created some of my closest bonds through music and the excellent arts program that South Fayette has to offer. While the coursework tends to be very rigorous, I enjoy the challenge and the supportive learning environment. The atmosphere is clean and the facilities are great to learn in.

You can draw your own conclusions, but having another child attend a neighboring school district I found the quality of education, attentiveness to individual success and college placement efforts to be quite a bit inferior here.
