On Student Culture & Diversity: The good thing about South Aiken the students/teachers try to get one another involved in things. At the beginning of the year when enrolling in high school teachers and students have tables set up to persuade or get your interest in joining clubs/organizations which in the long run looks good on your resume.

Recent Alumnus

On Health & Safety: We did not have a school nurse basically if you felt sick you were allowed to call your parent or guardian to come sign you out.

On Food: The only thing that i mostly complain about when attending high school was the lunch. You didn't have too many choices and the choices you did have you prefer to bring lunch most of the time.

On Administration & Policies: South Aiken can be both strict/lenient on school rules. The biggest part that they do believe in is discipline but also second chances.
