I am a freshman in High School and I went to Southern Lee High for the beggining of this year and I can say that it is one of the best schools I have ever attended. I have went to various schools in North Carolina and Louisiana but this has got to be the best by far. I am currently attending Sarepta High School in Sarepta LA but I can say that Southern surpasses it on may levels. There are so many different classes and many different extra-curricular activities that it is impossible to get bored with the classes you are taking. There is always something going on. There are many different sports and/or clubs to choose from and the staff is great. There are rarely ever major disipline problems adn very few minor problems. The principle is wonderful. He gets involved with everything. This is a great school.
As parents of three Southern Lee students, I can tell you that we are proud of the educational opportunities our children have been provided. Our oldest (a senior) will apply to colleges this year with a transcript that is well rounded, extracurricular activities that were challenging, and test results that are well above average. We're proud of the progress made by such a 'young' school and look forward to even more successes as our new principal takes over.
in my opinion, southern exceeds lee county high school...by far. when you first walk in the door your welcomed by a bright and happy atmosphere. it's also really clean, which is a huge difference the lee county. school pride is taken to the max and i think that's really important. our former principal, mr lassiter, was absolutely amazing. he listened to everyones needs and did'nt favor just one group. he will truely be missed. To everyone who believes their child 'hasn't learned anything' or believes southern is 'ignorant of the important issues' is just ignorant themselves. i've been at southern for 2 years and i love it. ya'll are wrong! :]
My son came to Southern from a private school. Since going to Southern he has gone from C's to A'S and B'S. He is happier and is more mature than he was last year . He has had lots of support from the staff at Southern Lee and loves it. I think Mr Lassiter does a great job and am proud of this school.
From our experience excellent academic programs, much better for us than Lee Senior. My son feels like he is a part of something great and that he is important unlike at Lee Senior where he was just a number in my opinion. Best thing we ever did was open another high school. My hat is off to all the staff. I have not had a bad experience with staff. There is however a poor parent involvement in my opinion.
