Worst out of Martin county's 3 high schools. Do not move to an area zoned for South Fork! It has the highest crime rate too

As a student in the IB program, I have the benefit of having really awesome teachers who treat the students like equals. The IB program is not exclusive and will take as many students as apply. With the smaller class periods now, teachers actually teach the entire time and there is no busy work. The school is more geared towards athletics than academics.

As a parent I've had a great experience with South Fork. The teachers have been very caring and involved with their students and the other parents are very supportive. My kids love the school, their teachers and the positive atmosphere!

Sink or Swim.... if your child has REALLY thick skin and does well with or without the help of his or her teachers, your child might swim. One of our children did "swim" at this school (you know, the kind of child who does well regardless). However, if your child needs extra help and is sensitive to inappropriate language by teachers, your child might "sink" as our other child did.

The school is mediocre, at best. As said before, a majority of the teachers do not teach and those that do are either filling class time with busy work. Most teachers are inconsistent with curriculum, discipline, and communication with parents. School should work to improve teacher quality. Regardless, the IB Program is great for students who are those that seek hard work and are dedicated to education. It is a shame only approximately 50 or so students experience this great program.

Nice Kids. Teachers could do more. A good bunch of kids. With a few notable exceptions, the teachers are mediocre at best. The 100 minute classes tend to consist of about 40 mins. of teaching and 60 mins. of wasting time. Kids fill the time watching movies, doing word searches etc. What little actually teaching there is consists of preparing for interminable tests. Very frustrating for the many kids that really want to learn. My hats off for the few heroic teachers that really try to do their job.

My child is now a sophomore and in transition from ESE to mainstream and I have found the counselors and staff very helpful each time I've had a conference or question. My child's grades have excelled even from transition.

Academic programs, such as the IB program is a program that does not challenge the students. The difference is that there is more busy work and then the students just cheat to get through. Many of the teachers are incompetent and it's suprising how many of the teachers can't pass the FCAT, which they expect students(who learn from those teachers) to pass... discipline is horrendous, there is none.

The school is wonderful. It offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program which draws many students in. The teachers are dedicated and involved. It may be out in the swamp but it's worth the drive.

I would not recommend this school to anyone. I have not one good experience with this school. They seem to bring a child down instead of trying to help them, I have heard my child called names at conferences, I have been denied counseling, I have maybe had two good teachers in a years time. They are overcrowded, and run a list on who they can get rid of first no matter how they do it. There are no bathroom privileges, and if a parent shows concern and wants involvement, they never call you back or make it easy to make an appointment. I have 3 children and have never experienced so much unexperience or unprofessionalism in my life.

South Fork High School has the best staff in the world. I am currently a senior and I have some of the best memories I will probably ever have. I hope that when I have children I will be able to send them to a school of South Fork's caliber.

I've had two teenagers attend SFHS. One was in IB and the other in honors school classes. They both did very well! One graduated 2001. And my last graduated 2003. He was able to get his IB diploma. Great teachers, warm staff and wonderful volunteers/parents involvement! The most humble and loving people around. We are bulldog fans and we will make you bark up our alley too!! Thank you!

This school is an awsome school and I have very happy that I sent my daughter too this school. I looked at all the other school around me and this one I think is the safest and has the nicest environment! All the students and teachers I have meet from there are the nicest people. I am very glad that my Daughter goes to SFHS.
