  • This school is ok, i love South, some of the teachers need to follow the dress code a little better and understand the stundents, they are very strick and i think that they need to give us a little room for difference. the school's athletic programe is good. the teams could of been picked better. the teams were basicly favorites and not who should of made the team. it wasnt fair. the specials like gym, band,choir, health, art...exc...they need to also be less strick and let somethings go and not just keep talking about it. I love south...lets go stallions!!!!(: RUMBLE RUMBLE RUMBLE!!!!(:
