My experience at South Plantation High School was overall great! When I first enrolled in the Environmental Science and Everglades Restoration magnet program and first even coming to the school I felt at home and welcomed. The broad and uniques subjects taught about what our environment and the Everglades faces on a daily basis is awakening to students and helps create a sense of urgency to help and restore our environment. Being on three different sports teams was great with my coaches not only helping me and coaching me to be able to play the game but molding me into a man for the world and life ahead of me. In a nut shell, South Plantation has taught me a lot and helped prepare me mentally and emotionally for my future.

I like the theatre program at south plantation high school. I have had so many great experiences with my theatre teacher. Jason Zembuch has taught so many students the value of hard work. I feel that with such a great program, so many students feel included and feel worth when they are dedicating time to something that is important. I do not feel that the atmosphere at south plantation is sanitary. Often times, there is no toilet paper, no soap in the bathroom, and overall a dirty campus in total. I feel that if there was more care dedicated to making the school clean, students would feel more comfortable in the learning space. I feel that it is important to have a safe learning space. The security throughout my high school years has increased at south. I appreciate that the staff heard the security concern of students and made a change by adding gates and stricter policies.
I like my experience at South Plantation High School, because I met numerous people of different culture, and learned about their lifestyles and how they experienced their life up to senior year. I also met with teachers who changed my viewpoint of the world and opened my mind to a variety of new things that I never would've learned had I not gotten out of my comfort zone. My experience at this high school has had a great impact on me, and I'm grateful to have gone to this school, despite it having its low-points at times.
