My overall high school experience was amazing! I had the best of the best teachers, that not only taught us, but also showed compassion and empathy for all of us that needed it. I spent 2 of my years playing volleyball and 3 of my years there being a football manager and a baseball manager. I love how all the teachers and coaches make you feel like you belong no matter what. The administration, in my opinion, are the best in Kansas. I wouldn't change a thing about my time at South except the changing of school hours. Our district changed the start times a couple years and although it didn't effect me personally, it did effect some of my close personal friends. Overall, I loved my time at South High School.

I went to South High School my Freshman-Junior year. South was a really good school and the staff was VERY helpful and made sure they kept a lot of people on track. I got to graduate south a whole entire year early ( My Junior Year). I am very proud to call myself a Titian! I had so much support and guidance throughout my 3 years of being a Titan. Some days was harder than other days but that didn't stop me from fulfilling one of my proud accomplishments. South staff makes sure everyone gets there correct education while still having the chance of enjoying high school. I couldn't be any excited to have graduated from a very high performance school!
South high, has little to offer on the subject of scholarships and college visits. But, South has a great intellectual learning environment for students that other schools cannot offer. Although, South has some issues revolved around fights. The school is still a great place for learning the basics of life after high school. Thanks for reading, hope to see you in classes soon!
