South River High School Reviews

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!
South river high school has been an amazing experience for me. The teachers have always been encouraging and my advisor has been there unconditionally to assist me with any issue. Her assistance , as well as my vice principals assistance , with my college path has been invaluable!
My time at south river has helped me to become a better person and taught me to reach out to others and help them.
I really enjoy my school! Everyday I look forward to attending my classes, not only to see my friends, but to learn from the incredible teachers. I love all the charity work my school encourage such as the Polar Bear Plunge and Relay For Life. There is also a large variety of clubs suited for everyone's interests. Best of all, all the students are really nice. There are rarely fights and very little to no bullying. Overall, it is a great school!
