  • South Lakes Fan

    While always a bit leery of these kinds of rankings, good to see SLHS among the best, in particular its “A” in Academics and for its faculty. Wonder a little about the “B-” in Health and Safety though. What’s up with that?

    Great job South Lakes High School! Keep up the good work! (And beat Westfields tonight!)

  • Deer Must Die
