School Reviews

This school is absolutely fantastic and caters to the students' interests while preparing them for college & life after education. South offers incredible electives that seek to quench the thirst of these bright young minds. South not boy teaches education, but instills in its students that people who generalize about large groups are not smart or critical thinking. South is a wonderful institution that grooms today's adolescence into tomorrow's adults.

The attitude and behavior of the students who attend this school is shameful. They feel that they are better then anyone else and are very demeaning to others.
