My experience at South Point High School for the last few years has been great overall. I have not had any problems at the school since I first started attending and would hope to continue the rest of the year like this. The staff does their best to get rid of problems and prevent problems from occurring. The only things I do not like are the potholes in the school parking lot, the building itself is old, old books, and not being able to go off of campus to get food. Other than that, things like academics, athletics, and clubs are amazing. Even though I have only been going there for two and a half years I have enjoyed my time at the school and if I could I would love for my future children to attend the school. GO BIG RED!!!

My high school experience was incredibly picturesque at the most spirited and family-orientated school imaginable. Being able to say I was and am a Red Raider is such of an honor as I spent four years basking in the greatness of South Point. Every class period, dance, football game, and the field trip was memorable and I am certainly not one other school can come in comparison to what it was like to experience what I did.
I graduated in 2010 (back when we won State in football). I loved everything about my high school career from the friends that I made to the classes they offered, the school spirit, Black Friday, BBQ day, the teachers, the food and the way their academic system is set up and how supportive the guidance councillors were in making sure we were on the career path they'd chosen for us. I enjoyed all of the classes I took and I never clashed with my teachers.
It was also always clean.
I can't think of a single bad time that I had there.
If I could do it all over again, I would.
