Southmont is one of Indiana's smaller schools in both building size and student population, so it doesn't seem overwhelming nor is it easy to get lost in it. The teachers are helpful and friendly, and they teach their classes in various ways and using various mediums. Southmont also has a good number of vigorous and challenging classes, among which are classes that can count for both college and high school credit, which is pretty helpful. It is also a very diverse and welcoming school with few, if any, cases of bullying or discrimination toward those of other races, religions, or with mental/physical disabilities. Rather, these individuals are treated with equality and respect. Another great thing about Southmont is that you always feel safe and secure. Southmont has a great number of good safety procedures.

I love the teachers at this school. They are very understanding of personal issues that may be affecting a student's performance in the classroom, and they never leave anyone behind academically. They push for struggling students to come into tutoring and answer any and all questions during class. They are not only teachers, but friends to confide in if you have an issue you would like to discuss. Overall, the staff here become like a second family with the strong relationships you can develop.
Southmont is truly a rural school, but offers as much as the city school. We have an awesome new tech program. Our school is going through a major growth, with expanding classes, halls and adding new programs. Our school seems to focus as much on improving Academics as it does its Athletic areas.
Southmont has been good to me. I wish, like most schools, the drug problems and bullying issues were responded to better. Feel like the bullied are the ones who get into trouble and the bulliers are protected.
