With 2 SPHS students, I have found everything about this school to be positive except for the perception others who know very little about the school have. Being the youngest of 3 high schools in the district has proven to be a challenge to overcome. Our boys are involved in athletics but that's not the highest priority even though SPHS has many state winning athletic programs. I feel that SPHS has provided our boys with what they need to succeed. The Arts, Academics, Athletics and so much more makes SPHS a great school. If you have not visited SPHS you certainly need to do that. Talk to those who are a part of "the South Pointe family" and form your own opinion. I know you will agree that SPHS is one of the BEST schools in this area! GO STALLIONS!!!

I have two children currently at Sout Pointe and have one who graduated last year. South Pointe has amazing teachers who truly care about their students and are invested in seeing them succeed! The parent groups (SIC, Academic and Sports Boosters) are extremely active and find a supportive administration at South Pointe. Please tour our school and meet with Dr. Al Leonard -Principal. You will be impressed. South Pointe has an open door policy for parents, and never once have I worried about the safety and well being if my children while they are at school.

South Pointe High School regularly produces high-achievers in academics, the arts and sports. Honesty and respect are emphasized and students are encouraged to believe in themselves. The staff is friendly, teachers willing to provide extra help, and the buildings and grounds are excellent. In addition, class size is smaller than that of the other two Rock Hill high schools.

South Pointe High School Teachers and Administrative Staff do not follow District Employee Guidelines are absent quite often even durning exam reveiw and exam dates. Administration Staff do not know what is going in the class rooms of the teachers nor do they know if the teachers are present or not present for the day. AP History did not even cover the material needed to be covered in order for the students to be ready to handle or pass the AP exam. This school has so many issues that need to be dealt with that our three year experience has been a total nightmare. The Rock Hill School District Office does not know nor do they care about the problems with South Pointe High School. As was stated in the last Academic Awards Ceremony as long as we keep sending great football players to the University of South Carolina that is what matters. There is at least 10 to 15 disicipline problems a week fighting in lunchroom hallways bathrooms and classrooms. This school is out of control.

South Pointe has a strong emphasis on academics, as evidenced by the percentage of students who take IB, AP, and dual credit courses. My daughter's graduating class led the district in terms of the monetary value of scholarship offers - an outstanding feat considering it is the smallest of the district's high schools. My daughter was able to exempt several courses during her freshman year in college and has done quite well. South Pointe is an outstanding school in all aspects - academics, arts, and athletics.

SPHS seems to have a singular focus on athletics, to the detriment of academics. The staff, up to and including the principal, do not know how many students from last year's graduating class went on to university. Or, for that matter, how many received scholarships. But you can get a blow by blow account of last Friday's football game. The priorities at this school are out of whack.

I am parent with a sophmore at South Pointe and I am very pleased with the administration there..Each time that I had an issue, it was handled with professionalism and care. The teachers that have taught my child are caring and they really care about the students. I am grateful for South Pointe. Now as far as the coaching staff in some of the sports areas, I do have issues with the favortism shown to some of the players and not to others. Not just with the coaching staff but the training staff as well. All the athletes deserve the same attention as the so-called 'stars' not taking away from those star players, but develop other players to become stars as well.

Staff is very unorganized and uninformed about their own the school system's policies as well as federal special education laws.I had to go to the school 3 times to try and enroll my child (this was after speaking with a guidance counselor and setting an appointment which she 'forgot' on the first 2 visits). A few of the teachers my child had really cared about their students and how they did, but the school as a whole did not impress me as having much respect for its students.The administration was always hard to reach.The attendance person did not classify my child's absences correctly and it took several phone calls and a visit to the central office to correct it. The staff at my child's special education meetings were not knowledgeable about federal guidelines for the Exceptional Children's program and I often had to correct them or have central office call.
