Southern Guilford High School is a school that gives many resources to juniors and seniors but other then that freshmen and sophomores aren’t given enough attention on ways to prepare for college, even though they have a longer way before starting to apply for college it is still good to give important resources. Southern guilford may not be the best looking school but the size of the school makes it better, with the school being smaller than most high schools it gives Students the ability to connect better with teachers and with there being a block schedule it helps even more.
At Southern Guilford, I like how the student body is very connected. Since we are a small school, we know the majority of the population. I also like how involved the clubs are at Southern. At Southern, I would like to see some of the teachers change because they are not all fit for the subject which they are teaching. I would also like to see administration change, as over the years it has not been very consistent. Overall, Southern has been a pretty good experience for me, as I have gained many relationships, been very involved in the school, and gained some memories that will last me a lifetime.
