Unprofessional and immature teaching staff. VERY FEW EXCEPTIONS at this high school. Pass kids on to higher levels and out the door that still can't spell or write. In two years there were atleast 12 kids that had dropped out without encouragement to stay.

This is a great town to live in and the schools are renovated or on the newer side. The superintendent is great and has been around a long time. The staff care about the students.

I would rate this school worse. Just last year there was a heroine overdose in the high school. They discovered a ring of students who were injecting heroine. Public didn't hear that though.

As a former student of SRHS, it was both embarrassing and comical to observe the red tape choke the school out of its educational ambiance. Police reports are filed for using cell phones, suspensions are issued for wearing hats, and the detention room is filled with students who wrongly had a water bottle on their desk during class. The administrative staff is utterly obsessed with disciplinary policy as opposed to improving the curriculum. I would strongly suggest SRHS to pursue Abbot-district candidacy.

i'm a former student at south river high school, and can say from four years of experience that school politics and budget issues are running the district to the ground. despite the town and school's small size, srhs is run as a corporation with little regard to educational standards. having graduated, i feel as if i've learned very little but took a very long time to do so. thankfully, poor leadership is offset by a handful of truly wonderful teachers [exception: the art department, which is a joke to serious art students] that made my experience less excruciating. the school's small size enables students to have down-to-earth relationships with their teachers. especially helpful is the intellectually-cultivating enrichment program, which prepares one for college in a mature environment. i longed to graduate already for much of my time there and regret my educational experience, but not the bonds i developed.

South river high school is a schoool that needs help at points. Dress codes arent enforced as well as they should be and even though the pricipal listens he is strict when it comes to seriious issues he isnt scared to enforce rules using the handbook. The teachers in the schhool are some wonderful teachers. The physics teacher is wonderful with students and he rather you understand the subject rather than make you memorize formulas or other situations such as that. He truely cares about his students.One

I am a student at South River High School and I personally do not like their system at all! It is so unorganized. They do not enforce the dress code and when a problem occurs, they handle it unprofessionally. I do not feel I am being challenged enough and I simply do not feel I will be ready for college in two years. And I would not blame that on myself. When a rule gets passed in our school and the students don't like it, they will complain and complain. And who wins? The students do because there are no or few leadership skills in South River. I cannot wait until I graduate so I do not have to be in that school anymore.
