Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Their answer to bullying is ignore it. Teachers are pathetic. Worst schools ever. Academics are terrible.

I'm a student at SDHS. I think that this school is really great. Well.. sometimes. The bathrooms aren't always the cleanest. Its really gross. I always dread going to the bathroom. Some of the teachers don't tell you what you need to improve on. So when you get your grade-check or reportcard, and you don't have the greatest grade, you have no idea why. It's really annoying. I really hope that they improve that. I also hope that they improve the music department. They don't change up the songs. Its always the same boring stuff. Plus, from what I see, they need more money to afford more music parts. Then maybe, things wouldn't be so bad. We might be able to afford new band uniforms.

I have found that South Dearborn doesn't have a lot of parent involvement, except for maybe football. Teachers don't let you know when your child isn't doing well unless you contact them. No PTO at all. i have been very disappointed in the experience.

I am curently a student at south dearborn high school. South deaborn has a clean and beautiful campus. Although the down fall is, I do not feel very safe at some points during my day. South dearborn needs to work on their academic department more than their extracurricular activities. South deabron has been known for favoritisum toward the more sports involved students. South dearborn should recongnize the more academicly advanced. Also some teachers are not supportive and can be rather mean at times. South dearborn would be the last of my choices to send my children to in the future!

I am currently a student at South Dearborn High School. South Dearborn has alot to offer. A safe school enviornment, excellent school facilities, a great teaching staff, numerous of extra cirricular activties, and friendly alumni. South Dearborn focuses on Academics before extra ciricular activities

As an adult, looking back at my years at South Dearborn, I have mostly fond memories. The teachers were excellent. The extra curriculars were varied. The only problem I ever had was lack of support for the arts. I always felt safe at South Dearborn, the teachers do an excellect job about talking about the things that are happening in the school so that we all felt comfortable.

Overall, South Dearborn High School is an okay institution. Out of five stars I would allot them three. I do not even feel safe allowing my children to ride the school bus.
