All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

I am part of the future class of 2011 and this school is helping me get the preparation I need for the years ahead. The staff is great and very kind, willing to help you if you need it. The administration is also very helpful towards my education.

Several family members graduated from here many years ago, when it WAS a good school. The school is not what it used to be. Parents aren't involved because the way the kids are left 'behind', and some are treated much differently than the preps. Everyone see's it, but no one admits it. They glaze over the truth, and the kids are definately not 'equal here'. Kids with mental handicaps, as my child are ridiculed, made fun of, and called names, and the staff/administration blew it off, saying 'they're kids and it happens all the time'. It's ridiculous that the staff and principal take that sad mentality.

I am a 2002 alumnus of South Harrison High School and found it to be exceptional. The smaller class sizes provided me with more individualized attention than what some of the larger schools in the county would have. I also found that the teachers were more than willing to help if the student was willing to learn. I am currently enrolled at Johns Hopkins University on the Dean's list and feel that in part that is due to the education I received from South Harrison.

I am also an alumni of South Harrison and feel that the last reviews do not give an accurate account of the school. Teachers do care and will help you if you ask for help. I have two girls one of which graduated in the top twenty of her class last year, the other will graduate in 2006. I can't imagine them attending any other school. Also, South Harrison has the only Alumni Band in the county, we get together at least two times a year for Homecoming and the Christmas Parade. As far as the parent involvement, it will improve when parents decide to get involved, that would be up to the parents not the school. Thank you for this opportunity.

I was a student at SHHS and I must say that most of the teacher's seem to be along for the ride. They have a very easy job and will keep it until they reach retirement. They love the smart kids because they are 'easy'. I had teachers that saw me failing, saw me depressed, and so on and did absolutely nothing! I saw forms of prejudice, preference, sexism and other things going on. I graduated and went on to college see a lot of teachers that care so much. I was never involved in extracurricular activities because I lived so far away from the school. I think kids there need more help being involved, getting parents involved, programs for disadvantaged students (which would be about the whole student body) and more training for teachers.

I am a graduate of shhs and have several brothers and sisters who graduated from this school. My nephew just graduated last year. My son is currently a sophomore here. I am very impressed with the new principal and most of the teachers. We have a few problems and football does seem to get the most attention, money,support, etc., But we're working on this. People can't just grumble - they did to take action to change things. It can be done. I am very proud of our school and the attention and help offered to students. We also have great parent involvement.

I'am a formal student of this school. It sure needs some improvement. With teachers. The football programs should not be every thing in the schools and run every thing else. The new principal is a great person but it will take more than him to get the job done. I think that teacher should have to change schools every five years.
