Excellent academics and top ranked athletics is what Maine South is known for and I have to agree. I have 2 sons that attend, freshman and senior. They are thriving and excelling in their coursework. I am confident without a doubt that my senior is prepared for University.

Teachers and coaches are great! Excellent school that offers great traditions and programs that the new principal Inherited. Discipline at this school is failing rapidly due to lack of leadership.

Really enjoyed my time here. The staff was really knowledgeable, and had some programs that were even better than my college! Great AP courses! I got "5"s on all my tests because they prepared me so well. I also loved the Art Dept and was able to take 4 years of Photography.

As a graduate of MSHS, the school provided an excellent educational experience and offered many courses of study. Top notch athletic facilities. Outstanding overall experience. Downside then and still, with the wealth, peer pressure and the availability of every drug on the market, parents need to talk openly with their children about the drug problem. Many parents were disconnected with their kids and too busy with their own lives to realize what their kids were spending their parents money on.

I am a graduate of MSHS and can honestly say that I could not have wished for anything more from my high school experience. The quality of the resources, teachers, and opportunities at Maine South are unparalleled. There really is an extracurricular for everyone. The teachers are excellent and create a great environment. I loved this school and would recommend it to anyone looking for a competitive high school and excellent preparation for college.

Kids from Maine South have nice cars, trendy clothes and cash, plenty of cash. The Maine South is perhaps one of the best public high schools in the area if you look at the scores. However, it seems that the school prefers not to face the overhelming drug problem. This school needs serious help from police and board of education.

Wow...What a GREAT school! This school truly is amazing. It scores in the top percentage in the country, has great kids and teachers, has tons of funding, and every after-school program you can think of, and has one of the best football programs in the country. My son went to Maine South, and he just graduated in June of '05. He absolutely loved this school. It's in a great community, where the parents are involved in the school just as much as the teachers are. Thanks to Maine South, my son was a straight A student, and he will be attending UCLA in the fall. Maine South is definitely the way to go. GO HAWKS!

An outstanding school with committed staff, quality leadership and supportive community. Maine South has a long tradition of excellence in and outside of the classroom. It's academic programming is second to none for preparing its students for their post-secondary endevors. Further, Maine South's extra-curricular programs excell at all levels. Both athletic and non-athletic programs compete and find success at the highest levels. Every student counts at Maine South as each staff members see that the individual is the the most important asset to the school. Their investment in time with each student pays dividends later when each is challenged with life's barriers. As a parent in the community, I am proud to have such a tremendous high school educating our young adults.
