    South Charleston High School has an excellent academic environment. The administrators staff and athletic personnel are genuinely interested in the well-being of the students. I am a parent of a senior and I will always know that she has had the best academic surroundings possible.

    SCHS is even better than it was 21 years ago when I left the state. My daughter is a freshman this year. The quality of education has increased greatly. Mr. Walton is an exceptional principal who has set standards and ensures they are enforced. There is obvious pride from the majority of students attending SCHS. The only disturbing news I have heard lately is the fact that Mr. (Coach) Toler will be retiring after this school year. He is a great man mentor and role model and will be sorely missed. -JD Huffman

    hello my name is Jorge Morellon and I was a foreign exchange student of the SCHS in 1999 (sophomore) and I still remember the time I was studying there as one of the best of my life. The teachers have good experience teaching and also the principal (mr. Walton) is working really hard to keep the school as good as it was when I was there and even better!
