South Lewis is a decent school. There are adequate sports, artistic, and dramatical programs available. However, the parent involvement is less than desirable. From my experience at the school, for the most part, only parents concerned with their childrens success in the schoalstic environment are involved in school activities and functions. Some of the sports programs are competive in the league while others struggle. The football team in 2003 was fairly competitive in their league, where in the following year (2004) the team forfeited their last two games of the season. The Cross Country, Swimming, Wrestling, and Baseball teams are all very competitive within the Frontier League and Section 3. The coaches for these teams are also widely respected for their abilities throughout the section.

The school in genersl is very good. The teacher are always willing to help and the programs they teach are good. The only problem is they do not have a good variety of classes for student to take. You have only a few extra classes offered. The music and arts deperments are good, they could use more classes and sports are getting better. Parent involment in this school i think has alway and will always be good. A small town you know what is going on.
