For your child's freshman year, send them here! Teachers and guidance counselors are empathetic and sweet. There is a HUGE range of clubs for your child to choose from; from Baking to Equestrian Studies to Japanese Animation Culture, your child can find something they love here. I used to be bullied a ton, but at Southern Lehigh, you learn to empathize instead of hate.

I'm a freshman in college now, but I can honestly say that I had no idea how well Southern Lehigh prepared me for the work here. I'm at a top 50 school and in their Honors College, so the work here is demanding. I feel like I've developed all my studying and notetaking skills so well in high school that it doesn't feel like much of a transition. Some of the teachers did give busy work, but for the most part, all of the Honors and AP teachers gave us challenging assignments, somewhat close to the college level. I am really grateful for the education I received in high school because it gave me a terrific foundation.
My high school experience has been pretty good. Southern Lehigh has many classes to offer! The teachers are very helpful! I have made many friends there. I especially love the theater program! That is my favorite activity I am involved with!
