Great school with a lot of pride and tradition. Just attend any event at the school and see how well the local community shows up! Over 7 million dollars in scholarships awarded to the class of 2010!

I have heard that this school is an amazing school. I have some friends that still go here and they all tell me that it's an awesome place to be. I'm trying to move back to Belmont so I can graduate from this school because I absolutely love that district. I lived in Belmont when I was a child and I loved every minute at the schools down there. I highly recommend anyone who student that lives in Belmont to attend South Point High School.

I am currently attending Southpoint Highschool, grad 10, and I have been attending this school for the past few months, and I have found that it surpasses any of the fifteen other schools I have attended. (Military kid.) The teachers are devoted and although the facilities are a little lacking, the school is an excellent school.

I graduated from South Point and attended Wake Forest University. I have to say that the rating of 5 out of 10 is not an accurate representation of a majority of the students or the quality of the teachers at South Point. Most of the teachers are very devoted and adequately prepare their students for final exams and college. There is a wide variety of athletic teams and other extracurricular programs in which students can participate. However, like a few others have pointed out, athletics are run by the 'good 'ol boy' club, and there are considerably more resources devoted to the football program than most others. That being said, the football program is also one of the best in the state, and is by far the highest grossing athletic team at the school, so they probably deserve the additional resources.

I graduated from South Point High School and I have to say I enjoyed every minute there. It has a wonderful learning inviroment and the teachers are top of the line in what they do. I played Football and the coach is the greatest in the state by far and I was also in the marching band as well and the director has a passion for what he does and I would recomend it to anyone seeking a challenge.

i absoluetly love this school! i have gone to SO many schools but this is by far my favorite. I have been really lucky and have gotten some of the best teachers at South Point. Most teachers really care about their students and want to help us all. I have really done well here but i have had my moments where i needed help and i have never had trouble recieving it. Great staff, good kids, and mostly caring parents.

I graduated from SP in 2005 and loved every minute i was there. Faculty was amazing and everyone for the most part got along. the athletics are second to none in the area the students really support their school. the parents and community members are always behind the big red.and just for the record my parents were on the booster club for many years . and they try to spend the money as fairly as they can. the coaches have a deadline to put things in front of the board for the new budget. and things go in order of importance. and yes they did pay for light on the softball field.

I have a son that is a freshman at SP this year and was on the JV football team. I also went to the school many, many years ago. The guidance counsler for the freshman have been great to me and my son. She helped us with classes and was so patient. My son also has great teachers and is loving going to school and the Big Red. I would'nt want him to be any where else. The ROTC program is also fabulous.

We have been in several states, this is the best school yet.Problems need to be dealt through the administration (and they do get solved). It is True that booster club are mostly concern about FOOTBALL. Football is IT in most HS. If parents want the PTA and Booster Club to work they need to attend meetings and put their two cents. This school has great teachers and very good Principal. Parents concerns are always heard. Now if you have a problem do not call, write to the school board, don't hesitate to do that, your child education is most important. The school has done a great JOB.

Good school, but administration/teachers highly political. Can be defensive of parents concerns.

Academics are excellent. Although school adminsitration is very bias when it comes to girls sports especially softball. This year the varsity team has come further than any other team at the school but recognition is minimal from Athletic Dept. Awards ceremony focused on how booster club helps all the teams. Girls softball never saw the booster club until playoffs. Very disappointed in Scott Lee, thought things would be different and the 'old boys' views would diminish. Guess the parents were wrong. The parents have done all the work on the field which includes mulching, painting, lining etc. (The girls are lucky to have a field at all!)

Decent academic opportunities and atmosphere. The administration is highly political and clearly demonstrates favoritism in dealing with groups of students.

Certainly a great school! Who ever disagrees does not know what they're talking about. Their Private School standards make the school one of the best schools in the entire county.
