The information along with the reviews are VERY OUTDATED. South San can be compared to any school in the city & even out with it. South San is NOT what it was 15 - 20 years ago. We have a Brand new school with state of the art equipment for use & great staff on board. We offer many paths for programs for college for students to enroll. All South San does is stress the importance of moving on into your next career field & helping you on the way. Do not always believe what Fox news puts on tv trying to represent us as still a "Ghetto school" because we are not. We have little to none Gang Violence & school fights because everybody just keeps to their group. The only real problem I can say is the National Honor Society is NOT taken seriously, but rather as a joke because anybody can get in & will probably graduate as one even if you had failing grades in the past year. South San is a great school that stresses college on the first day to freshmen & along with all students having the chance to choose their career. Now with the reviews in the past stating "Too much stress on students & not much help on teachers" is BS because us teenagers just like to wait last second to do things.

I agree with the parent that says that the educators need to spend more time teaching during regular classes what the student needs to learn so that when it is time to take the TAKS test, they do not try to cram everything in a small amount of time. Sometimes what they do teach is not even on the test or visa versa.

I think South San is getting better every year. The new fine arts facility is wonderful and the principals involvement with extra carricular activities is great.

The board of directors is more concerned with themselves and the athletics, than actually giving the kids the education that the need to succeed in life. Students are not encouraged to attend college, only vocational programs. If they focused on teaching, they wouldn't have to focus on TAKS testing at the last minute. If they are taught what they need to know then they will do fine on tests.
