On Resources & Facilities: The school is very old and dirty. The computer labs don't get used very often and computers are few and far between.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: The administration is alright. They handle most issues quickly and effectively but sometimes they don't do the best of jobs.

On Health & Safety: For the most part South Meck is a safe school. It is a bit dirty though, but that's because it is very old and hard to maintain.

High School Senior

On Academics: There are several great teachers. Although some are below par most all of the teachers excellent at what they do. The classes are rigorous, but at the same time they are rewarding.

High School Senior

On Sports & Fitness: There is an excellent opportunity to get involved in sports at South Mecklenburg. There is plenty of resources as well as coaches to help you get involved. You will have an incredible amount of sports from your fellow students. I highly encourage you to get involved in sports if you are considering it.
