There is so much I love about South. The teachers are one of a kind. The junior teachers are the best. They care about your personal growth as a student and they truly want you to learn. There is an abundance of clubs for every niche you could want like anime club, science club, fccla, fbla, kindness rocks, etc. Unfortunately, compared to other local schools, there is a clear lack of diversity when it comes to race. We don't have a track but we still have a track and field team. Our football team currently isn't the best but our school spirit is intact. They took away a lot of popular elective courses for the 2019-2020 school year. But overall, South is a great school!

South Williamsport Area Junior/Senior High School has many academic and extra-curricular opportunities. There are many ways to get involved and a variety of classes to take. There are different resources available for post-high school paths, like career fairs, college visits, etc.
Extremely lacks racial diversity. The school is in debt and the school board are doing a bad job, in my opinion. However the teachers there are nice. The students, in my opinion, is what makes school life here great.
