Like many kids probably do, I HATED high school. I really did not excel at GPS and barely was accepted to college. Grosse Pointe South was far harder academically than my four year university. I received a great gift from my parents by virtue of them choosing this community in which to live.

Ive gone through the G.P. school system and my kids went from happy, great teachers{k-5} to semi unhappy teachers/students begin picking favorites {6-8} to completely miserable, preppy,unsocial, paid off school{9-12} and dropped out half way through Senior yr cause they couldnt stand the ppl there...they just care about everything else but school work! They need to add an etiquette class to properly train some of these ppl !

GPS quite possibly the worst school we have ever had to enroll our children in. As a military family we move a lot and have lived in very diverse communities. There is absolutely nothing diverse about this school. Unless you consider a bunch of stuck up preppy teenagers with too much money diverse. We have not found one student or group of students to welcome our children into this school. My kids hate it here and we will be moving asap! Parents.. Teach your kids how to be welcoming to new students, students with less money and so forth. Most of all, teach your kids to be kind, caring and compassionate. Something a lot of students at south lack.

Snobby kids and education doesn't match up as advertised. Teachers ok but kids are not that great

Diversity, I am not a fan of it, Diversity, does nothing but destroy a school!! If this diversity gets any worse I will be moving farther north!!

Fabulous school. Offers many avenues to develop talents and succeed in learning. The Class of 2014 had the highest number of cum laude students in the school's history. South had two students, of Michigan's possible 5, go to the US Naval Academy. They offer exceptional club and team activities. The choir is nationally known, sports and the Arts are strong, as are activities such as FIRST Robotics. There are many volunteer opportunities to help others less fortunate, such as Reading Buddies and general tutoring. Many students go beyond this and volunteer in surrounding neighborhoods in Detroit. All in all, the school is a model of individual and team achievement.

South is an amazing school the best school in michigan and the teachers are just amazing im taking solid AP courses and im still finding myself having a ton of fun GO BLUE DEVILS

The standards are high and the opportunities are amazing. Course options and activities rival offerings at a small liberal arts college, and the teachers are helpful and supportive. More diverse and welcoming--economically and ethically--than some are claiming. Regardless, all students are expected to work hard in order to earn their grades--it's no diploma mill.

Most teachers are very involved with their students and parent support is amazing. Many opportunities for extracurricular activities.

I am a former student from GPS. I am saddened by the Still 'Bubble' and by the lack of 'Diversity' at GPS. It challenged me academically and the extracurricular activities are great. To the students in 'The Bubble' pop it! See how amazing other people can be! To the other students that feel the lack of 'Diversity' you're already ahead of the game! To all of you, keep your heads up! It really is an honor to Graduate from Grosse Pointe South High School.
