I enjoyed my experience at South Stokes High School. I was very involved in clubs in high school and there were many to choose from. Honors and AP classes were offered. Some AP classes were offered online and connected to Forsyth Tech and others were taught by teachers onsite. There were multiple different language classes to be taken. Only Spanish was taught by teachers, but there were online classes for other languages, including French and Latin. The teachers offered Smart Breakfast before the school day began so that students could come in and get help on subjects that were more challenging to them. Teachers were very supportive and it was clear that they cared about each student's academic growth.

For the most part I absolutely love South. Its a very small school <500 kids so its been very easy to get to know my teachers and counselors, most have been phenomenal, over the past 4 years. However, due to the size we do not offer as many classes as some of our neighboring counties. Also, due to the size you end up getting to know a wider range of people, we still have cliches per say, but you're in more than one. My favorite part of being at South has been the athletic games, I have only missed 2 games in four years for the sports I enjoy watching; and I've come to find new sports that I enjoy.
In my biased opinion I personally think there is no better high school than South Stokes. On a regular basis I look around the halls, gyms, classrooms, parking lots, and fields and think how lucky I am to attend such an uplifting and close knit school. Coming from a small town in which both my parents also grew up in it was inevitable for me to attend the local high school where too they each graduated from.
