Ninety Six High School is like a home away from home. It gives you that charming southern family feel. Everyone knows everyone, however its not too small. There's a pretty diverse group of students at Ninety Six High, but majority of them get along. The teachers are there for students whenever they need them, and always welcome them with open arms.

Ninety Six high school is a great school overall. I had an amazing experience in high school, graduating in the top ten of the 2018 class. School diversity in students and teachers is not very diverse, but is what is expected with a small town and school. I enjoy many sports and had a great experience playing three sports. The small town supports the sports teams very well. The teaching and material could use a slight upgrade, however, as I was not prepared for college. I, along with many of my classmates never had to study in high school, which made for a tough first semester at Clemson University.
Ninety Six is a great high school for students who want to peruse an education locally or in-state. The school doesn’t support dreams of schools like Ivy Leagues, and doesn’t offer many classes. All classes offered are basic, like algebra and world history. We only offer 3-4 AP classes and that can be very tough for kids like me who want to go to a big university and wants experience. Some good things are the culture and safety. Everyone is well known to each other and there is not much bad behavior. Almost every kid has gone to school together since primary school. Bad behavior doesn’t fly at Ninety Six and it’s a great place to enroll a kid. It’s a very small school and easy to keep up with who’s doing what and what’s doing on. I wish there were more academic opportunities, but that’s what I get when I go to a school with a extremely low town population and low funding.
