Report Card Surveys - The Educational Accountability Act of 1998 specifies that “school report cards should include information in such areas as evaluations of the school by parents, teachers, and students.” Student, parent, and teacher opinion surveys have been designed to measure the perceptions of three (3) factors: Home and school relations, the school’s learning environment; the school’s social and physical environment. The South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) survey window is now open for the administration of the 2021 Parent, Student, and Teacher Opinion Surveys. The results of the student, parent, and teacher survey for the annual state report card are included in the Student Safety section of the state report card.
All Southside High School parents, faculty, and students are expected to have the Opinion Surveys completed no later than Friday, April 30th. Please use the school's BEDS CODE: 2301018. Survey Links and Online Resources are listed below and on our Accountability & Quality Assurance department website.
This year, Southside High School will be offering a traditional face-to-face Summer Program for all students. The seats will be limited, and there will be a focus on students who have failed one or more core classes during the 2020-2021 school year. Our summer curriculum is designed to build proficiency and skills that will enable students to be better prepared for their next grade level. Registration will begin Friday, March 26th, 2021, and will remain open until Saturday, May 15th, 2021.
Students and parents are asked to reach out to their school counselor for further details.

Southside High School is pleased to announce Wilbur Roy Ravenell Jr.'s appointment as the new head football coach. Ravenell has an extensive background in coaching, including ten seasons as an assistant coach and defensive coordinator. His coaching experience also includes stints at Wade Hampton High School as an assistant coach and Greer High School as Assistant Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator. He played football at Stratford High school for legendary coach Ray Stackley. Southside Principal Dr. Andre M. Dukes said, "Coach Ravenell brings a wealth of football knowledge and experience to our football program. Coach Ravenell's passion for the game of football is contagious. Our student-athletes are fortunate to have him as their head coach.
He will bring a rare combination of openness, determination, and organizational prowess, and it is clear that he deeply understands this issue." Ravenell is known as an up-tempo personality with intelligence, as someone who can connect with his players but at the same time is going to be disciplined and demanding. Ravenell is a graduate of Furman University and holds a master's in mathematics education. Ravenell replaces SHS Head Coach Jeremy West, who accepted the position as athletic director/assistant principal at Westside High School in Anderson, SC.

What AVID is...
A program for "upper-to-middle" academic students. These students have the potential for honors/AP/IB/Dual Credit work, but need academic support paired with rigor.
AVID combines rigor with support that includes each student's individual determination & the support of teachers & other AVID students.
What AVID is not...
an "at risk" program. It is designed to support students who would not otherwise attend and graduate from a 4-year university to do just that.
for students who fail to complete any of their homework.
for students who consistently earn "D"s & "F"s in their coursework.
for unmotivated students. AVID students must have individual determination.
If you are interested in AVID, please contact our School Counseling and Advisement Office.
