South Park overall provides a good high school experience. Although it is small compared to other high schools in Western PA (Bethel, Mt. Lebanon, TJ, etc.), it makes up for it in terms of quality of safety and community. As a student, I feel very safe here and the community is thriving. Because of its small size, one knows more of the students in his or her class and smaller class sizes attribute to this as well. South Park also has great teachers that provide quality education. Most teachers here are personable and friendly and earn a great deal of respect from their students. The school also provides close-knit clubs, that make up for lack of financials with quality members that are passionate in what they do.
The only downsides of South Park is its lack of diversity (student population and administration is basically all-white and there is no GSA)

Very good school. Does need some work to get student better prepared for college. Teachers go above and beyond to personalize lesson plans towards students individual needs. The sports teams are very well coached especially the soccer tems,
South Park Senior High School is a very good place to receive an education from. South Park offers a wide variety of classes within their curriculum making it significantly easy to learn about what you love. There are many school clubs to become involved in, like I myself have, although I do wish we could participate and experience more within these clubs. The diversity is not the best here, as there are only a couple of each minority. Overall, South Park educationally excels.
