Review Southern High School
My experience with Southern Alamance High was very good, I graduate from there and enjoyed my time. I played two sports which were both well run and I had some great teachers.
I liked growing up with the kids that attended there and feeling comfortable. I didn't feel that I got a good education or was really forced to think a lot while I was there. I felt like most of the teachers were there to earn their money and leave. There were two teachers I had that I really appreciated... only two.
