I really enjoyed the Magnet program and the field trips that are apart of the program. From the Magnet program, I learned so much about the environment and hope to pursue a career related to help the environment. I love music and i wish to help the environment. I hope to use music as a tool to help environmental awareness and issues will be able to help move society forward in help the Earth and it's sustainability. The Magnet teachers are amazing. They are so knowledgeable and really do care about each student. You build a connection with each teacher for all four years and that is extremely helpful to student development from freshman to senior year. I really have grown from the program and the school.

South Plantation is for me more than a school, I can say that South Plantation is also my 2nd home. I love South Plantation High school. I am grateful to be part of this strong, kind, and awesome family. All the teachers, staffs and every people who work in my school is special and unique, because they work every day in order to make my school and every student who go to, great. Thanks to my teachers from South I have learn not just knowledge in math, English and Science; I also have learn how to be kind with others and how to be a better human.
I come from a very poor country, when I first started high school in the United States I was in 10th grade. Every person from South Plantation High school have been helping me through my progress. Thanks for help students like me to find a reason in life to be better and to use our powerful light to change the world for a better place for me and for others.
There are a plethora of positive things about South Plantation. However, there are quite a few downsides. South Plantation has many teachers that genuinely care about the education of their students, but there are MANY who care only about a paycheck. However, South Plantation does have many faculty members who take on extra-curricular activities who have a vested interest in their students and their craft.
