    (1/2) Does Fargo South really serve the students? Do they serve the parents? Do they serve the common good at all? Fargo South is not only childish but highly exploitive and manipulative. In particular the administration finds ways around the laws simply because they believe they have the right to make decisions that can permanently affect people s lives. One of these ways being preventing a student from graduating. Students usually have one common goal when they make it to High School graduating and either moving on to post secondary education or moving on directly from school. (Having their high school diploma or GED in hand so they can move on with their lives). In reality Fargo South a socially-falsified-euphoria. Compulsory (attendance hatred from conspirers) being the monarchy in which everything is twisted conspired against and eventually forced into failure. While the administration pushes students off to community

    this school is in a sorry state bad administrators and teachers that conform to administrators whims and school counselors that do not know how to advocate for the child....

    South is a very good school. It has a lot of extracurricular activities and a big variety of classes to take including many AP classes.

    I think the overall school success is based on the child that is leaving and what is learned by them to take to the future. From what my child tells me about south high there are more problems that need to be addressed and are not in order to make this school worthy of its ratings. Academically speaking the school does offer great classes and sports curriculum. The guidance office is most helpful of all since the office personnel are at times helpless themselves and don't care. Overall I would say that it is a good academic school but more emphasis should be to put education back into the minds of the young adults we are instructing. Good luck... My child will not be attending next year.

    An incredible school holding the potential to mentor a student to achieve academic success Fargo South is one of the best public schools a parent will find. With a history of academic success located within a safe and growing community Fargo South's wide range of academically challenging courses and highly motivated faculty helped me to develop into a successful student. I wouldn't be where I am today without such an amazing academic high school experience which challenged me to succeed.
