My overall experience at South Pittsburg High School is very good. What I like the most about the school is the fact that it is a football school. The environment on game day is amazing! One thing I would change about the school is the books we receive. The books are usually old and worn out. I would prefer to have nicer ones.

South Pittsburg High School is an awesome school. The school is filled with teachers dedicated to providing a quality education and preparing students for college. If a student is struggling understanding lessons they can go to tutoring to get extra help. This school has an above average ACT score with multiple students scoring a 30 or higher. In addition to the quality education, South Pittsburg also has quality athletics. The football team is the only team in Tennessee to win a football championship in every decade since the 1960s. South Pittsburg is unique because of its never-ending rivalry with Marion County High School, which is one of the oldest high school rivalries in Tennessee. Every year almost everyone in the county goes to the football game against Marion County. Even though South Pittsburg is a small school of about 300 students, there are great sports teams, terrific teachers, and plenty of clubs and organizations to get involved in. If I could do it all over again I would still choose South Pittsburg High School.
Teachers at South Pittsburg High School are excellent. Most of the teachers at this school go beyond what they are required to do, and they give engaging lessons, especially in English class. The teachers are easy to talk to and are great at helping students understand concepts. We have a period during school where students can go to any teacher and get tutoring if they have trouble understanding a concept. Also, teachers selflessly dedicate extra hours to before and after school tutoring. These teachers give students all the tools they need for success and more.
