Southern Lehigh School District Reviews

I liked how Southern Lehigh took the topic of bullying very seriously. Teachers would always be in hallways or else our school’s cop would be watching the camera’s. Physical bullying would almost never happen because of this. If it would occur, the consequences on the bully would be taken seriously. I didn’t like how the school was labeled as a racist school. There was an incident of students carving swastikas in the bathroom stalls and letters were sent home to the parents. The news heard about this and broadcasted the story. I was even scrolling through the popular page on Instagram and I found a video about it that had over 1 million views. This incident was due to a few students, not the entire school. I disliked that we were known for white supremacy when in reality we are an accepting school for race, gender, sexuality, religion, etc.

My experience at Southern Lehigh has been really good. I have been raised in this district and I think throughout my time here the school district has done a lot for expanding my knowledge and preparing me for my future. At young ages you learn how to type and how to use technology. This helps for later years because you are already exposed to necessary things for your career. During the college process, the guidance counselors have been really helpful with the Common App, SRAR, and sending schools all your needed materials early on. I am really grateful for all the opportunities Southern Lehigh students have as well. This year, I was able to take classes at local colleges through my school to give me a jump start for my future.
Southern Lehigh has provided me with many opportunities to become a better student and person. The teachers are helpful and the guidence counselors are always there for the students. My overall experience with Souther Lehigh has been very good!
