    I attended a football game at Socastee High School with my son and one of his friends (both 10 years old). I was so disappointed in how the students represented their school. Many young ladies were clothed so immodestly and both the young men and women were cursing and using vulgarity like it's a normal everyday occurrence (which it should not be especially at 14-15 years of age). I also witnessed a fight between some of the students being broken up only for one of the young men to be escorted away by a police officer. I'm hoping this wasn't an accurate representation of the entire school but it's sad that these students think so little of their school and classmates to dress and act this way. My son and his friend were so uncomfortable that we left at half-time. I was considering sending my son to this high school when the time comes but I'm seriously rethinking that.

    I moved to Myrtle Beach when my son was just under 2 years old from New York City researched the schools all along the Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach and found Socastee had the highest national academic rating of all the schools in the area. Top 5% of public high schools as rated by Newsweek for 3 consecutive years. Academically challenging SHS has both an International Bacceluarate Program and an Honors/AP tract. They do not allow your kids to eat junk food during lunch or even buy soda - YES! My choice to build my home in this area was based upon my son's education and it has been the right choice. He participated in the honors program at Socastee High School Lacrosse enjoyed extra carricular activites and is now an honors student in college. This school is far ahead of most. The Principal is as involved with the students as if they were his own children. He can be seen at any SHS eventm and is avalable to meet with parents. The rest of the staff & teachers are MOST EXCELLENT. I cannot say enough about the wonderful and dedicated educators. I appreciate everything they have done to educate my son and give him the tools he needs for college as well as life. ILSHS!

    The principal makes an effort to know every student in the school. Top 5% of public high schools as rated by Newsweek for 3 consecutive years. Great students + community involvement + teachers that care = bright futures.

    SHS was a wonderful school. Academically challenging SHS has both an International Bacceluarate Program and an Honors/AP tract. The choir is truly a gem at this school with a nationally ranked chamber choir as well as annual Madrigal Dinners. Two people to seek out at the school are Mr. Morrisson and Mrs. Shuford. These two individual care about both academic spiritual and intellectual growth.
