Families from the neighborhood, other neighborhoods and private schools are choosing South!
Current South Parents Love South!
"We considered our home school and another DPS high school. At the last minute, our daughter asked to shadow at South. After that shadow day, she was excited and committed to attend South. The comfortable class sizes, the excellent teacher/student rapport, the diversity of student backgrounds and the overall positive feeling in the school gave her what she was looking for in a high school. Loving every minute of her high school experience at South, she was well prepared for college. It was such a success that our son followed and is currently attending South and loving South as well. Our childrens' high school years have been rewarding, academically challenging and extremely fun, it doesn't get any better than that." Mark and Jan Bundy, Choice-in parents from Hilltop Neighborhood.
"Our daughter attended a small private school. She was ready for a larger, more diverse school and we chose South because of the welcoming atmosphere, the proximity to our home and the excellent curriculum. South offers a large number of honors and advanced placement classes and a strong music and art program. She loves having the opportunity to become acquainted with students from all over the world. She has found the coursework challenging. South is our neighborhood school and it is nice to be within walking distance of the school and be part of our community. Our principal, Dr. Waters, is so energetic and dedicated. It is impressive to see her welcoming the staff and students each morning. We are happy to be part of the South community!" Sara Murdoch, Neighborhood Parent and former private school parent.
"South has provided both of my children with the necessary competencies to succeed in high school. The learning environment is amazing and they are being well prepared for college! They have been provided opportunities to improve their public speaking, increase their leadership skills and perform community service. In addition, they are having fun and thoroughly enjoying their high school experience." Val Renkert, Neighborhood Parent and former parent of the HGT Magnet Program for middle school.
