It’s A Great Day to Be a Tiger!

Southside High School is one of the most diverse schools in South Carolina and we are proud to offer our students more than 100 course offerings. Our educational program is academically challenging and built on high expectations. We offer a variety of programs: International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), Honors, CTE, and College Preparatory. All of these programs are designed to meet the unique and individual needs and interests of each student.

Student engagement is achieved by linking the curriculum to previous knowledge and experiences and then exploring new ideas and promoting authentic learning. Southside provides a high school experience that enables our students to be college and career ready while having tremendous opportunities to get involved.

Southside High School has a rich history of academics, the arts, and athletics.  Our International Baccalaureate (IB) Program is among the best in nation with over 200 students pursuing certificate and or diploma.  Our students attend Harvard, Yale, Clemson, USC Honors College, Duke, just to name a few. Our Speech and Debate and Academic Teams are nationally ranked. Our basketball team won the 3A State Basketball Championship. Our Fine and Performing Arts programs are top notch!

We welcome parent and community involvement. I invite you to attend one of our upcoming Meet and Greet Events for the 2017-2018 school year.  This will be an opportunity to meet me, meet with staff, learn about our programs and offerings and tour our school.
