The most recent review of this school was over 4 years ago,. and said this school was on a track for greatness. It has reached it. Charles Blanchard is a great principal, and I have had nothing but positive experiences in my son's classes or with teachers this year. Very supportive environment. Great students. My son has been challenged and involved like he had not been in elementary and middle school. Outstanding ROTC program that I would recommend even to those who have no desire to enter military. Terrific leadership training.
this school is on a steep rise to greatness as far as these other reviews go i feel that they should even be recognized because as of 2007 the school acquired an amazing principal in kitley.students love him.teachers love working for him.he knos how to have fun.the only time kramer would show his face was when he had to ex: the begining of the year as he would try to schmooz parents....kitley on the other hand is out and about during lunches and class change.he made it a point to learn every seniors name once he got there and did(he was there half the year)!in turn him being this way took stress off of students and i noticed a crazy drop in the number of fights that occurred.
the school is better. mr kitley rocks! he's awesome. the teachers seem happier!
the school is to big for one resource officer! Need more parents or another resouce officer to help look out for the safety of the students and the things they should not be doing on school ground!!!!!!
As a parent who has always been involved in my children's education in California, when we arrived here I found my children felt they were too old for my continued involvement. I was pleased to find that I was kept abreast of their progress on a regular basis and was informed of their 'good' accomplishments as well as if there was a problem. There are good and bad teachers everywhere and for the most part, I feel that in the 8 years my children have attended Southeast, I can count on less than 1 hand the number of what I consider bad teachers for both of them combined.
As a student at SE I think there is entirely too much emphasis on guy's sports and test scores. Many classes have been cut to force students to take harder courses. In the last year, safety has gone down significantly and space has become an overwhelming issue and hardship on everyone. Other than a few unmentionable higher-ups, I believe the faculty is fairly good.
Southeast in its prime was a great school in which acedemics and individual student progress was important, when i graduated in 2003. Since my departure many faults have arrose. The acedemics are no longer in the forefront of the administrations concern. Testing is the most important concern along with busing.
Southeast is a great school. It's time for more space to be added, but the teachers and students cope. Athletics is competitive yet secondary to education. Boy sports do appear to be more supported than girls, but that's nationwide. As far as public schools go, you have solid academics, sports, safety, and extracurricular activity. It's a well-rounded place for kids.
I feel that the athletics at SE is all about the guys teams. They get money for new uniforms and equipment even though some the girls teams do better than the guys team. SE adminstrators need to fair to all the teams not just the guys teams. The girls teams work just as hard as the guys (sometimes harder)My daughter has the right to use the new weight room just as much as the guys do. It is time for SE to be fair to girls teams and they be able to use all the facilities as the guys are allowed to do.
I found that SE is turning into a test school. Frankly I am tired of my children being tested every time you turn around. The teachers don't get to teach a class so the students can understand it before they have to go to the next section and be tested on it. If guilford county want to have these test(benchmarks, EOC, Exams and Senior projects they need to decide which one they want to do and stick with that one. The kids are being tested to much at SE and propably other schools as well. Senior Projects is to much on the student when their parent and student have to worry about the money they have to invest or if The project they pick to do is approved because 9 times out of 10 it is not and they have to find something the board likes at school.
Southeast is very political and unfair in its athletics. Coaches easily influenced by parents. Many good players never get a chance to play. just go to a basketball game a watch, it is all about the coaches son and a few selected players whose parent or parents are at the school making sure their son plays. I am thankful my children are out of there and I do think I will follow up on this with the school board.
Don't let your children go to this school. They are cutting many classes, and our children are suffering for it. For instance, next year they are cutting all the AP languages and the AP sciences, as well as AP Music Theory and AP Art 5. This is ridiculous, and your students should not have to put up with it!
I went to this school. I don't suggest letting your kids go here. The academics are horrible, the social aspects are just scary!
Southeast is overall a great school! There are some students however who take a different like to one race... I feel there are as not as many steps being taken to brake down this barrier.
My daughter has enjoyed going to SouthEast since the 9th grade. She is now a Junior. The teachers for the most part are excellent! The only thing I would have to complain about is that not enough time or money is put into our orchestra. The orchestra continues to grow, and yet they have no classroom of their own. They share a room with other classes while the athletes are getting a brand new gym built.
Southeast has grown under the new principle. He is striving to better test scores and make more AP classes avaliavble. As my child is college bound AP classes will benefit her greatly.
