Hinsdale South High School Reviews
This is an excellent high school in so many ways. The school pride is abundant. With a relativelysmall student population, students get lots of individual attention from teachers. The curriculum is challenging and a wide variety of classes are offered. The student body is diverse, the teachers and administrators are experienced and there is a strong focus on rounding out the student experience with many available sports, clubs and activities. A true gem of a school!
There isn't much I like about Hinsdale South but the things I do like about the school are certain people. I honestly think there are some trustworthy adults in that school like some of the deans, the people who run ISS, the counselors and the social workers. However, I think the changes to the school regarding security is completely unnecessary. Hinsdale South is a good school with good kids and for Miss. Vannoy to go around and spend all that money from the referendum on vape detectors, new security cameras, those security guards is just unneeded. The school's broke enough, don't make us bankrupt because you think the school needs all those things when it doesn't, things were fine before Vannoy came along.
My experience with Hinsdale South so far has been pretty decent. The school itself has an abundance of school spirit and pride. You'll hear the words "South... PRIDE!" a lot and trust me; it will never get annoying. Attending events such as football games, soccer games, and basketball games its quiet customary among the students. Personally, I feel the football and basketball games are extremely fun to attend. Its basically a themed party in the stands and everyone is your friend! Education wise, the school offers many opportunities to excel in each class. You Just have to put in the effort and the teachers will be sure to recognize your potential.
