I strongly feel that the advanced classes at SGP are preparing my child for college. Teachers are responsive and seem to love what they do.

I have 2 children at SGP and I have enjoyed being here. Previously my children were in Charter Schools. I have had a few problems with grades but when I have contacted the teachers they were helpful in either correcting the issue or allowing my child to do extra credit to help with their grades. I do check their grades weekly. The School has a lot of School Spirit and participation. At football and basketball games the stands are full of parents,students and Admin. I believe it takes both the parents and the Staff to get our children through high school years successfully.

They are teaching the 5 Pilars of Islam.Mahaamad is the prophet Allah is one god.Teaching of the Qur'an,Jihad,their Mosques are beautiful and its a religion easy to learn.They are having an Islamic guest speaker come in and teach Islam to the kids without parental consent. When you pull your child from the class they go to ISS and get an "F".Merely punished for not believing.Religion should not be taught at school under our noses.

I am currently a senior and I must say sgp has the best English and History teachers in particular. Really enjoyed taking AP History! Science and math departments needs a little improvement though(There are some lazy science teachers! especially in AP science classes which is a shame. So many "blow off" electives. Loved psychology, Environmental Sciene and Ready Set Teach! Student body is generally accepting. Bullying is taken seriously here and are not tolerated. Not a bad school.

This school has engaging teachers and counselors. But the administrators scores a failing grade due to their disconnect - more worried about athleticism, dress codes and other less pertinent things than academics. Administration needs to get on board with their teachers and just maybe SGP would be an ideal place.

My daughter graduated from South in 2010 and I must say that I wasn't too impressed with the school administration in those four years that she attended but was very satisfied academically with the school. I too am in education in DISD so I understand the ups and downs of education and what all goes into a campus being sucessful. My daughter attends a private college out of state and is doing great. Girls athletics could be a great deal better.

This is a great school. It is very large and diverse. This school offers many different academic as well as extra curricular programs. Excellent staff. My son just graduated from this school and I would highly recommend it.

I am Proud to say that we are recognized and is a Exemplary campus 2 years in a row hopefully this year could be 3. The only thing that we strive for is to pass the TAKS test. We study that and our other courses but mostly anything dealing with the TAKS testing. The only thing i don't like about South is how we are mostly concern about student appeals. We should be mostly concerned about grades, graduation, Senior things and other fun stuff. With them always saying "pull your pants up", " Go to ISS" or even " You're violating dress code, meet me in my office". I understand the care but start worrying about our grade instead how short the girls dresses are. Really he administrators dress is violating dress code but get on the girls more really dumb. But yea other then that South is a Good School.

I am a current student at South Grand Prairie High School. I am proud to say that my experience here at South has been a great one. The faculty enforces a great amount of discipline which keeps the students intact and on track. Those who don't do well do so because of their own free will. I am currently a senior and wish to be one for another year but I can't because I must live my life. If you are looking for a High School to enroll your child I recommend South with enthusiasm. I am proud to be a Warrior! :D

I am a former student of South G.P.H.S. I graduated in 2004. I can say that walking through the halls at any point in time I always felt safe and let me tell you, I am a very petite women. There were few fights and when one did break out it was taken care of so fast that nobody saw it. There was a teen pregnancy problem but I did notice that it was with the students that had a more 'rough' home life. I think this is a great school. Anytime that I had any trouble with a class I could ask for help.

I taught at SGP for 25 years and am now retired. The most important thing that needs to take place at South is that the students need to take responsibility for their education. They can't expect to be successful college students if they expect to have education spoon-fed to them in high school. I loved being a Warrior most of the time I was at South.

The school is in bad shape. The administration at SGP is horrible. They only care about how a student looks and not academics. The administration also doesn't support extracurricular activities. They are pulling the quality of SGPHS down a whole lot.

South Grand Prairie High is doing well compared to schools of the same size and demographics.

As with any public school, the bombardment of testing and the No Child Left Behind Act has dictated most of what occurs in the classroom. Although SGP faces these problems with raised consciousness and fervor, teachers plead for the help of parents and most of all, students who need to take responsibility for their own education. We are educators, and we can not do it all. I compliment the efforts of the SGP family, both hard-working students, teachers, and those caring parents who make the school a quality environment. I won't deny that there is room for improvement, but I know that we aim to improve. I am proud to be a member WARRIOR clan!-GO SOUTH!

I was a student at SGPHS... and I am NOT satisfied. While there are a few gems.. MOST of the teachers really don't care. Most of the math teachers don't know how to teach math. If you ask for 'help' Most of them will instead give answers. This helps with homework grades, but then comes along a test, and over half the class fails. A lot of teachers cover this fault up with a 'curve' raise the highest grade to a 100, and raise all of the other grades by that amount of points. Also, the principal is the last person who should have power over kids. She's hypocritical and only enforces the dress code to certain students. I also rode the bus and there were numerous occasions of fighting, someone drunk on the bus.

The administration is trying to swim upstream in this school. The students are going one way while the administration are going another way. The administration is expecting higher and higher expectations and quality of work. However, the student body is giving lower and lower quality of work and constantly balk at the expectations of them. Also, the school needs to further update their use of technology in reporting their data and in their day to day operations.

Being a former teacher at SGPHS, I can say from an inside perspective that it is a quality school. When the parents get involved in the learning of their students, it really helps the teachers to create an environment condusive to learning.

This school is great. The campus really has control over most all the difficult situations. In my daughters four years their she was never put an unsafe situation. And the staff ins the friendliest. Well the attendance staff could use a little help.

I think that SGPHS is a wonderful school. The students are full of spark to learn, and school spirit. My daughter has never complained about the teachers, and she loves it.
