South Burlington High School is a great place to earn your High School Diploma within the public school system. The teachers show great attention and care to their students to enhance a broad spectrum of learning for a good quality education, preparing students to continue their education post graduation. South Burlington High School is very active throughout the local community. The only downside is that there seems to be a lot of bullying that goes on in and outside of class and around their grounds. Radical diversity is slowly but surely growing in this school district!

SBHS has prepared me very well for my future endeavors and I am so lucky to be able to go to this school! The teachers here want to help you succeed and the student body has some of the kindest, funniest, and most caring individuals I've ever met. The work here is challenging but manageable, and there are plenty of choices for classes and levels (some interesting ones are American History Through Film and Astronomy). Outside of academics, our sports facilities are fantastic and we have many state championship winning teams! There are also many non-athletic clubs to join, so you can always find something to take part in. There are also the fun traditions like Talent Night where the classes go all out! Overall, I don't regret any time spent at South Burlington and I am proud of my work completed here.
A great school with passionate teachers and a supportive community! The only "complaint" I would have about this school is the lack of diversity in socioeconomic background, ethnicity, etc. Otherwise, I had a great experience at this school!
