I have loved my time at Anderson! Our school may not be a fancy private school, but it is full of teachers who love doing what they do. I have always received help not only academically, but also when dealing with more personal issues. I cannot thank the staff enough for the hard work and effort they put in providing the best high school experience for all of the students and families.

Southgate Anderson has been great for both of my children, my oldest finished school 2016 and I have a senior this year! My oldest needed extra help with school special services helped her a-lot. My senior is in AP classes and is doing well.
When I went to Southgate Anderson High School, it was like your normal everyday high school. Sports, Academics, and then the Arts. Always putting the Arts last on everything, Southgate Anderson High School is usually a safe school to take your children if you live in the area. They pink slipped (fired) a lot of teachers once I got there so a lot of good education left the school and we got stuck with the younger, inexperienced teachers who had their main focus on their personal lives and what was going on with their phones than actual teaching. I remember the hall sweeps that existed if you couldn't get on time to class. Instead of letting you just go to class 5 minutes late, they would have designated people look for late people and they would not be allowed to come to class. No matter what was going on at home, no matter what their background of life was, they would get that person and make them stay for an in-school-suspension punishment. Other than that, I had an ok time here.
