The reason why I decided to rate my overall experience with Souther Nash High School is because I had the best four years here. The community, the teachers, my peers, and everything about this school was great! I was involved deeply in this school and to this day, you could walk in the building and continue to feel the love. Our motto was "Firebirds All In", "Firebird Strong", and "Once a Firebird, Always a Firebird" to name a few and they are all true. You could be a student alumni and they will still reach out to you to make sure you're doing well. I love being apart of the Firebird community and hope my children one day enjoy every second of it as I once did.

I am currently in my senior year at this school and had enjoyed it. Since freshman year I already knew people that went to Southern Nash so I already felt welcome. However, many new students and transfer students felt welcome aswell. I have tried my best these past years to include everyone and make them welcome at Southern Nash. The teachers here are very good and will try their best to make sure you understand your course. The faculty and staff interact with the students a lot and make sure you always feel safe.
