Like everything in life- whether or not you have a good experience is subjective to you and you only. This school has had a bad rap in the past that still lingers on today. I went to this school and I only have positive memories. Surround yourself by people who are shooting for the stars as you do the same. The atmosphere of this school can appear a bit chaotic at first, however, when you take a step back you will see friend helping friend and camaraderie! This can be a great 4 years but it's all about what you make of it. Get involved help add to the already great and legendary culture that this school has acquired!

I absolutely love this school. As a freshmen i attended Northwest High School and it just didn't feel right. I wasn't involved with with my school or my class and everyday i woke up dreading school because even though i was getting my education i just felt like something was missing. Being black at a predominately white school it was hard for me to do what i love which is cheering. Not saying that it was only white people on the team it just seemed like i didn't belong... So i tried out for Southeast High school and i made the team! I was so excited to be doing what i loved. Ever since iv'e been at Southeast it has been nothing but joy. I'm finally making those High School memories that i can tell my future children about someday. Coming to this school has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am now a junior and on the varsity cheer team my life is great.
This school is great with the staff! Teachers and administration work well to make the school a better and safer place! However, I do not like the atmosphere with the other students. They cause a lot of trouble; however, the school staff knows how to handle those situations. Asides from the issues with other students. I love the student diversity! I feel at home because I can find tons of other students who share my same interests in clubs! The school spirit is highly enjoyable. Overall, I'm having a great time here!
