    "My experience at DGS was very odd. I've had bad teachers and amazing teachers. The classes you take can be difficult or easy depending on how much a student wants to challenge themselves. It's a big school, many opportunities to always meet people."

    "South high school has provided me with an academically challenging and engaging high school experience. Most of the teachers I've had have been very caring and do whatever they can to help their students succeed and really learn the material being taught. Our athletic programs are also very exciting to be a part of, as there is something for everyone."

    "I believe that South has prepared me for college and taught me life long skills. The activities and opportunities within the school has allowed me to grow as a leader and become more confident. The teachers here do care and want to make high school as pleasant as possible even if it is stressful. The only down sides are that school's heating and cool system is never working properly, but if I have a sweatshirt in my locker I'm good to go. Overall, my experience at South has been great and I will remember it for the rest of my life."

    "Highschool was honestly a great time in my life. I am especially glad that I went to South High School becuase we are all a family. The staff definitely cares about their students and helps them in life. I loved every single program from band to tennis to the clubs. I also appreciate how we are served breakfast, lunch, a snack, then dinner. There has been so much change and I am glad that i got to live through it. During my time at south, we had 3 different band rooms, remodeled tennis courts, had a parade around the streets for winning state for soccer, solar panels installed, and a remodelled weight room. South High School is a great environment, with wonderful staff and people. Our highschool is always promoting "Rebels Do It Right"."

    "It was a very large school and certainly a good experience. One thing I would like to see change is the counselor's connection and relationship with their students. Not only myself, but I've also heard from others, that a number of counselors are not as interested in their students as I think they could be. A close relationship with them could lead to even more success from the students!"
