I’m a Plymouth South graduate and I couldn’t recommend this school more! It’s such a tight-knit community and not once did I ever feel excluded. The school pride is unreal, but for those who choose not to partake aren’t pressured to do so. Most of the teachers go above and beyond to help students do as well as they can whether it be through staying after for extra help, meeting during lunch, or even providing deadline extensions. Not only were the teachers incredibly helpful, I also felt a bond with every teacher that I had, which made school feel like I was hanging out with my friends while also learning. Another thing that I enjoyed about South was that there was no “popular” kids, it wasn’t a typical high school with cliques, there were many different types of people who were all friends with one another. Overall, I would highly recommend the school for it’s staff, and welcoming, communal feel.

They have recently built an entire new building with state of the art EVERYTHING, I so do wish I could go back in time to attend this new building.

Although I wish the art department got more time to shine-rather than all the sports teams I would have appreciated it more. I loved the Art department at south and was really close with my art teacher.

Also the Special education department is amazing!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Plymouth South. My school offers a wide variety of classes from laid-back fun classes to very challenging and advanced classes and I love having the opportunity to take both types of classes and everything in between. All of the teachers are passionate about what they are teaching, and love to make close friendships with their students. We are lucky enough to have a state of the art brand new high school, and have many clubs and sports for students to get involved in.
