Southern High School Reviews
Review Southern High School
The administration/principal/guidance counselors make school much more harder than it needs to be. Guidance does not help when you need them, they are rarely in the office, they dont help situations, they dont know how to explain things to you when you ask (they just answer the question with another question or ignore the entire thing) The students at the school are mostly rude and/or mean in general. The school definitely has its cliques; athletes stick together, art kids stick together, most minoritys stick together, etc.
The teachers do help if necessary. It could be improved on. The teachers could include more lessons where technology is involved, and could make the lesson more interactive.
The school administration is very positive except for a few of the administrators who are way too involved in finding reasons to get kids in trouble. The guidance counselors are very friendly and are helpful when you reach out to them. The principal follows the rules very strictly which many of the students at my school don't like, but it is important for him to do that. The attendance lady is extremely strict which can be good or bad. Overall most of administration is very friendly when approached.
