South Pointe High School Reviews

The administration was distant and acted like it was a burden for them to have “deal” with us, even though it was their job and they were the ones getting paid for it. Some of the teachers truly cared about the students while others were clearly only there to get a paycheck and leave. There were many fights, and several lockdowns during the almost 2 years I attended making the environment feel very unsafe and distracting to learn in. The classes did not prepare me for higher education. Members of the sports teams were always given special attention or favors and football was the only thing anyone cared about. There was always an issue with my class schedule and the guidance counselor was always rude when it came to dealing with my schedule becuase I transferred and it made it difficult on him. Overall, its was my least favorite of the three high schools I attended.

The teachers at South Pointe are (from my experience) very passionate about their work. Most classes are very engaging and generally enjoyable. However, the school culture is hostile and students don't get to meet often with counselors and staff, so there is a little bit of a disconnection and lack of guidance.
As an alumna from South Pointe, I have many great things to say about the school. South Pointe was the place where I was able to grow academically, socially, personally, and religiously. South Pointe is full of remarkable individuals. The teachers, administration, and staff all truly care for each other and for the student body. Some of the nicest people I've ever met work as custodians at South Pointe. Those who attend South Pointe as students may not realize it in their youthfulness, but that silly slogan, "Live the South Pointe Way: Integrity, Community, Excellence," comes to life inside of each member of the South Pointe community in some form. While I was a student, I was given a multitude of opportunities to serve my peers as a leader, prepare for my future, enjoy my time as a student, learn, succeed, fail, learn from failure, and grow. Fortunately, I took advantage of those opportunities and have benefitted beyond measure from doing so.
