Ghetto students, Sports teams do not know how to play a civilized, clean game. Gang mentality. Would not recommend to anyone

I am an alumni and i definitely learned a whole lot through out my high school year. The teachers were very helpful(Specially my English teachers) and the school was always full of energy.

The autmosphere is friendly and the teachers are helpful. The Career Path Center takes the time and effort in helping a student apply for college, its comforting to know that someone is taking interest in your future. At SEMHS its easy to get involved in after school activities. So far SEMHS has left me with life long friends and the extra boost needed to prepare me for college.

I am Currently a senior at SEMHS, and I must say its an great school. Their are not really any 'clicks' the teachers and their curriculum is excellent. I left SEMHS for one semester and between that school i attended 2 other schools but I couldn't help but to come back to south. The enviorment is irreplaceable. :]

Going to south el monte was my sons choice. He loves it. He likes all the teachers, except one, but they let him switch teachers and made everything better. He went to El Monte High for his freshmen year, and hated it. He was terrible grades, but not he's getting A's and B's. He loves the other students because they're more into the stuff he is and more mature. He says there's almost no fights, and when there is, it's between girls. He also, by suprise, likes the food to. So yes, I highly recommend this school.
