As a parent I must say this is the best school my son has ever attended, including a charter school. The teachers actually care about your child, they will even email me if they have a concern with his progress.they even have free tutoring after school. I have met some wonderful staff here.. his counselor Mrs.Stewart and Kelly have went above and beyond for both of us and we will be forever grateful! ROTC program is awesome! My son loves this class and A personal thank you to the military staff running this program , I will feel at ease knowing he will be partially trained b4 he enlists after graduating. Also the office staff are great, always so helpful and its great to see a student doing announcements at times.. So much opportunity here ! Thank you for a job well done !!!

I taught at STA briefly, and would have loved to stay had the opportunity arisen. I loved my students, the principal was outstanding (although she has unfortunately since retired), and the staff that I knew were fantastic. I have also substitute taught at the school, and just based on my experiences, can highly recommend the special ed program, which had a lot of life skills components and it seemed the kids were really benefitting from it.

I'm a sophomore at Southgate Anderson High School and have been enrolled in Southgate Schools since 1st grade. The high school is very well planned out. The teachers all care for the students curriculum and want to see the students succeed. My teachers always find a fun way to explain things, and you don't even realize your learning the subject. In this school i have straight 100% in all five classes, and have improved so much of my writing just this year at SAHS, I've received letters from Harvard and Princeton. The teachers are very helpful and the counselors, all though not the best, try their hardest to prepare students for college, this school is amazing and i absolutely adore it.

I consider Southgate Public Schools to be the best schools downriver. The teachers are always willing to help the students. Our sport teams are extremely good. We have an awesome sport program. They do a really good job at preparing the students for the ACT and other major tests. The administrators are very good and always willing to help anyone out. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!

Love this school! Sort of new there, i switched from Carlson, which might i say, is a horrible horrible school. This school has so much to offer, only some sports have tryouts, and some, like tennis, golf, and others, you don't have to try out for.Sure some of the sports are expensive, but if you honestly would like your taxes to be rasied so you can pay for the equipment, let some one know. Or if you'd rather just pay for your own student...anyway, i like the way this school handles things, and might i say that one of my teachers is the most helpful person i've ever met in my life. We get assigned ALOT of work, but always have time to do it, and its never anything over the top. I only dislike one of my teachers, but i'm a teenager, so those odds are good.

This is a below average school, no Student likes High school and Anderson High makes it worse on them. There is no fun in the school, nothing to look forward to no attractions. The counselers are supposed to be there for you but instead they talk down on you. The Special Ed Department cares alot about there students and regular ed teachers look down on special ed teachers because of the fact that special ed students dont understand, have reading problems, and cant add or subtract. I hear alot of kids talking in the hall ways about how they want to play sports but there parents cant afford there equipment and the 'pay to play'. To be on a Sport you have to try out which is un-fair they should make enough teams so every student who wants to play the sport can. Its not an eual school.

my youngest daughter is graduating this year. She made the top 10 students in the graduating class. I am concerned that her counsellor has never once called her down to talk about her future and or scholarships that would have been avaialable to her. I think parent involvement makes a huge difference in how a student does. She loves her teachers and they have all been extremely supportive of her. Thank you from a very proud parent!

I found that southgate anderson is probably one of the worst highschools because the teachers don't push their stundents to care and learn about the subjects, on top of them not making the students all they can be the school disipline system is completely out of wack, they are unfair and don't know how to weight situations right to fit the crime. They do not prepare them for college properly! It is the worst do not let your kids go here!!!!
