    "Horrible. Went so far downhill in the past few years since my two older children graduated that my youngest child now attends another school. The teachers are mostly nice, however the current/newish principal needs to go and many of the kids attending now are disrespectful and unruly in class, oftentimes making it impossible for the rest of the class to learn. Now that my child is no longer attending South, his grades have improved by over 30% and is making honor roll!"

    "Long Island has changed. I used to live in Long Island as a child. I moved to the city after getting married. After my children were born I decided to move back to Long Island,so that they could get a quality education. Instead, I got high taxes and an ongoing battle with the school district over what "quality education" really is. The standards here have sunk so low that my children felt more challenged in the city. There is smut being read in the classroom to "peak children's interest", I was told by administration. Reading about weed smoking parents and risque sexual encounters fosters my children's growth how? It's a shame when I have to suggest them reading "the classics". I have to put my children in extra classes outside of school for them to have access to challenging and age appropriate materials. It's no wonder why we are so behind other countries."

    "Horrible setting with very little structure. It's a shame, because I thought that we would have a good experience at South. Administrator is not involved enough and a lot of nonsense is going on. Many people are sending their children there from Queens, and unfortunately our tax dollars are rising every year. After 1 year, I pulled my daughter out and now have to spend additional money on private schooling. I would suggest to anyone moving into the area to find a private school or a new area."

    "While I'm sure the previous reviews did apply to the school during that time, I would not say the same about South High School today. There is a good handful of experienced, very helpful teachers, but many others come and go, usually because they are too incompetent to teach or because of cutbacks that result in them having to leave, which applies especially to the regents classes. Many of the administration's rules are superfluous and only enforced when it comes to impressing the Superintendent of schools (I've seen this firsthand and it makes me sick). The guidance counselors are helpful, when they're available. While the students are well-rounded and hard-working, I've seen a great deal of bullying occur in the halls, which are overcrowded and overpopulated, making it easy for these things to go unnoticed. The academic programs are taught to cover subjects tested on regents/AP examinations. If you want your child to be taught to the test and receive the best score they can, know that it leaves little room for free expression in class, such as debates/in-depth discussions. If your child is hardworking and participates in activities, they will do well at South."
