Grosse Pointe South High School 5

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.

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.

Grosse Pointe South is a great school, as long as you are focused on your school work you will do well here, if not you are done, the classes are tough and the standards are high, if you are not up to it you will be cast aside by some teachers and students alike. The selection of clubs, sports, and other groups to join is spectacular, as are the electives at south. Overall South is a perfect school for anyone focused on school and getting into a great college. I think the thing that says the most about south is that many students in each grade move on to Michigan or Michigan State, and in ever grade there will be a few going to Ivy League schools.

Great place to learn. Outstanding AP courses. My high school senior believes it is one of the best schools in the nation.

i'm a student at grosse pointe south and the 'undiverse' thing as we've seen with repetition is quite accurate. Most teachers and parents may not experience this first hand but to the students that do, its extremely fevent and alive. Its a great school in terms of academia but the social scene is a whole nothing entity. If you are a genius, can survive the labrynth of high school simply based on the academics excellence, can withstand the social pressures of everyone you are surrounded by 7 of 24 hours in the day, then i envy you and this school is perfect for you...and the administration is oppressive, but the teachers are amazing
