This is an excellent school. They treat everyone the same. Majority of the students there are friendly. If you want to go to college, this school doesn't sleep until you are accepted in to one. Although the food is terrible like all the other schools, they make sure there is a way to get great food.

South Lake High School is a friendly school, however, the administration does need to be worked on, for they have very negative attitudes toward students, and parents.
