Southridge High School4

The principal at this school is fantastic and very responsive. My daughter is enjoying her teachers and is in the honors program here as well as track. I have not regretted sending my daughter here at all! I think that Southridge is an all-around great school and they truly care about the kids. I do wish the drama and music programs were even better, and that the parents were more involved, but I believe that lack of parental involvement is becoming an epidemic all over the U.S.
This used to be a good school. But then the administration changed. Mr. LeCompte was the best thing that ever happened to this school, and now he's gone. On a side note, the Tech program is the best in the area. The only other problem is that this school seems to pride itself on sports and nothing else.
I have never seen anything even close to these comments. The teachers and principal are the best around! They actually care about the kids and their academics. You have to want the grades to get them. I have had three children go through Southrige and would not change a thing!!!! Great school, great teachers.
Wonderful school with great academics overall but principal is out of touch with students, he is too concerned with school's image. Athletes get a pass in regards to discipline; music and art departments are great. Physical education department is headed by incompetence. Lots of sports opportunities with great coaching. Booster club is wonderful with tremendous parent involvement and worthwhile programs. Math department needs an overhaul with a few truly excellent educators.Stay quite clear of the various academies as they do not count toward college credit and may hurt your child's chance of college accepance. I would recommend this school but in my opinion southridge is in need of a new principal and athletic director.
