My personal experience at Southport High School was great! A lot of the students that attend are fairly welcoming and helpful to others. Not only that but most of the teachers who work here are extremely nice and very patient with their students. My school is considered one of the "melting pot" schools in the Indianapolis area because of our vast population of students that consists of races anywhere from white to Burmese, even to our new students that have just came in from Africa. Southport has been able to look at students differences, appreciate them, and work towards giving my peers and I all the learning that we need to be prepared for the world outside of these walls.

Great and supportive staff! They love what they do and the teachers are truly involved in their career. Student and teacher relationships are very positive and always flourishing. Student interaction with the community is amazing and the student life is as well. Students love supporting teams and clubs, and are always doing community service to help out.
I really enjoyed all of my class options and how we were able to interact with the other classes in the school. The idea of having a "freshman academy" where the freshman are not in the same classes as the other years is awful to me. Due to being able to interact so often with people older than me, all of my friends ended up being at least a grade above me. Southport gave me the chance to work hard and even graduate a year early! The only thing I would like to improve is the school parking lot traffic.
