South Harrison High School Reviews

My school is great because it is a smaller school so the teachers have more time with the students. This allows the students to perform to the best of their abilities. I am a senior in high school and I started at South Harrison in fifth grade, this was the first school that I stayed at for more than one year. I have bonded with many of my peers and I will be very sad when I graduate. South Harrison is not perfect because they don't always try to focus on the students and there will be fights and not much learning some times. Although the school is not perfect it still tries to make your learning experience fun and productive.

I enjoyed most of my teachers. They seemed to really care about me and my success. The classes were academically beneficial, I believe I learned a lot. However, I wish my administration would have supported me more when I wanted to do presentations in an effort to create a better school and community. School was just school, never much more. It should be a place to grow and find yours passions as well.
The classes range from challenging to easy, depending on the teacher and subject. There's good course loads for both the nerds and the "jock-type" clique. The teachers are good, and care about their jobs. I especially love our science and math faculty: they're always there to help you.
