My experience at South Garland High school was a great 4 years in my life. A bit of issue here and there with certain coaches. However, I learned to overcome them and become a better person. South Garland has many activities that I was fortunate to be involved with like basketball, band, track, and other activities. Basketball is one of my favorite things to do at South because basketball is an all in one activity of endurance, discipline, and training. The others were fun as well, an event called powder puff, was when the ladies played on the same team as the coaches against the football team which I thought was really fun especially after I was chosen as one of the interim coaches. South Garland High school, allowed me to build friendship with teachers like never before. I believe they taught me well and help me succeed in the next step in life - College. I will never forget them because they helped not just with school but with advice that lasts a lifetime.

My high school experience was as an average high school. High School is what you make of it! I think the theater arts department could use a revamp. I had one of the best guidance counselor, she helped me every step of the way.
I like that Southgarland is very set on college and will help you get on the right track, whenever you reach your senior year you’ll have the opportunity to receive free college tuition which I feel I s a perfect opportunity for students. Things I would like to see change about southgarland is the phone as a senior I didn’t like to put my phone in someone’s box they should treat us as if we are adults we should be able keep our phone but if we’re seen on it then we should get it tooken besides that they shouldn’t take the phone when you first walk into the classroom.
