South Hills High School Reviews

South hills has improved me in many aspects in life but being a senior in high school and on the verge of graduating, I have noticed it still needs major improvements as far as academic readiness and the overall school culture. I have realized there is no school spirit here and limited resources on college readiness as well. The way i have grown as a person i could have easily gained that experience from anybody else. But something a student cannot control is the stability of a school and its environment. The community feeling here doesn't give the unity feeling a school is supposed to have. The way this school is presented in online reviews and towards the public is deceiving because it only shows the school's "good side". It doesn't show the school dangers and lockdowns we've had in the past year . Not saying that the school can control crime outside of school but the surrounding environment can influence the kids and students attending this school.

South Hills High School is an awesome school to go to .Everyone in the school is friendly and will help people that need help, but the students can come off as very quiet and non-friendly but that’s just the way they look, we really are a very friendly school. Our school also takes their sports very serious and the teams are always practicing for their games and sometimes they don’t have games but will still practice. The only problem that this school has it that we the students, think we are too cool to have any school spirit. Everyone complains that this school is lame because nobody participates in the school spirit but the teachers participate so the problem is with the students. This will be the only thing I would change of the school the poor school spirit.
My experience in South Hills High School has been amazing so far as a junior. Although I heard many rumours about this school before my freshman year, how it had really bad reputation and how the students were horrible. It turned out to be the contrary, it is the best school! It is the High School with the most scholarships received and many students have been accepted to colleges/universities, this school is full of great opportunities for students. It favors everybody, not just a specific race.
