South River High School Reviews

All Categories
Most students at the school were involved in some sort of club, sport, or committee. Many students participated in the school sports, and most that did not came out to support the athletes. There is a wide range of clubs to participate in at the school, and everyone can find at least one they would feel right at home at. Clubs range from community service, to student government, even to video games such as Pokemon!
Review South River High School
It's pretty awesome! The teachers all really care about their students and the faculty is always very nice. The food isn't always the best, but the lunch lines are always super long! Being there for four years in the STEM Program really helped prepare me for college.
I think SRHS is an average to good high school in Anne Arundel County. They seem too focused on steering students into AP classes and overall testing - which is never-ending in AA County. It's a big high school and the administration does a good job keeping the students in line but if your child isn't in the STEM program, or involved in sports, they seem to be left behind. Parking is an issue at the school/ there isn't enough and parent participation/involvement is below average (unless specific to sports). Some teachers are good- others are average.
