    Although this school is much older compared to all the other schools in the district South Lake High is an excellent school with great teachers and staff as well as spirit. For all four years of my high school career I do not regret going to this school it's like home and I'm so sad to be graduating soon. The school offers a variety of courses as well as extra curricular activities. The staff shows pride in their students and they always praise us. The teachers not only educate students on course material they also expand the subject and they help inform students about how the course material affects our world.

    It's a fantastic school very welcome atmosphere. It has some age but it's a very safe and roomy. The staff has been very helpful the years I've been here I have never had a regret about coming here. It's a great school!

    Being here for four years I've had the opportunity of exploring all that South Lake has to offer. Its abundance of extracurricular activities and sports as well as its rigorous AP and vocational courses are readily available and full of students who share a drive to succeed and become better individuals and community members. Although we may not have the same access to free personalized technology as other schools in the area may have we've demonstrated our flexibility in excelling academically with or without the use of technology. The teachers and staff here are always willing to go the extra mile in ensuring that students feel safe are understanding the course materials and are ready to enter the real world upon graduation. I am proud to be a South Lake eagle and so were my parents when they attended this school. South Lake is full of booming potential and continues to grow each and every year.

    South Lake High School is a wonderful school attend. Every teacher I have had in my high school career here have helped me become a better student as well as a better person. The band program especially has had an impact on my life. I have learned so much about being a leader in my years in the program. Each and every member of the band I consider close friends; I would even venture to say they are a second family. The teachers here have also been experimenting with personalized learning which is amazing. It better prepares us students for college. I know that for a fact that I will be ready for college when I graduate thanks to personalized learning.

    I rate this school 5 star school because its great to be an eagle. Here at South Lake the faculty and staff is great. Everybody here are very nice kind and helpful. First the admistrators do their job and handle situatuions correctly. They make their students feel comfortable when a problem is going on. Our secrartaries are great. They are filled of joy and ready to work with you they always try to make everyone feel welcomed. Our teachers are great they work with you 1-on-1 if you are ever stuck in a problem or don't understand something. Also teachers treat their students like they are their own kids. When a student is having an issue at home or anything whoever you feel comfortable the most talking to is ready for you. South Lake is just a great school and everyone is set up to achieve in life. The teachers administrators counselours and couches are always pushing us to make us a better person and successful in life.

    Its very low key and tame. It could have better classes materials and builidings but it is good enough.

    I've gone to this school for 3 years now. I wouldn't even think about attending another High school. I love South Lake High School.

    An quite amazing school for where it is located. And I feel that this school will grow significantly in the next few years. The reason why is because the intelligence of the teachers here are astounding for the none important town we live. The current band teacher mr. ryan f wright is no where near the level you think he would be for a public high school. He teaches and motivates use so well that I think I will become a music major when I go to collage. Also the ROTC program here is a warm serious friendly incisor meant in which we train learn grow together. Over all great school and would recommend anyone who is looking for a school that raises the standard of excellence.

    South lake is an excellent school that is unlike any other! We have classes such as a navy jrotc culinary health science and various ap classes. We also have great extra curricular activities such as FFA FBLA and first year wrestling program. This is an overall top choice school.

    This is a great school. I don't know why people hate us so much. We have great programs here that go to their specific "finals" every year. Our FFA FBLA Culinary Band Chorus ROTC etc have all established themselves as some of the best in the county country and even the nation. Our band and band teacher Mr. Wright are so much better than they are perceived to be. So maybe everyone who dislikes this school should experience it more or at least do more research because they are WRONG!

    I have had no issues with this school. My son has been there for 2 years and loves it. His teachers have been compassionate and helpful making sure he is staying top of things. The honors classes are great and sports are great as well. The campus is always clean & tidy. I highly recommend SLHS for education & sports.

    South Lake High is a great school with plenty of opportunities. I graduated with a 3.8 GPA and had an opportunity to dual enroll receiving my Associates of Arts Degree within 1 year after graduation.

    We are loving the SLH experience! Our son is a freshman and he is challenged in each of his subjects. The AP Human Geography class is taught like a college-level course and is really preparing him for his future academics. The elective choices were interesting and varied. Can't say enough about the culinary program-wonderful! My son feels safe and happy at SLH. The school has a small town feel but with it's eyes open to worldwide possibilities in education. Go Eagles!

    This is the original "Groveland/Clermont" High School. All of our family and friends have gone through this school. They have great Art Music ROTC Sports & Academic programs. The teachesr really care for their students and if your child takes there education seriously they will soar at SLHS. My children are honors/ap students and wouldn't want to go to any other newer high school in Clermont. We love this school!
