Welcome to south High


For information on all South High activities please go to the following web site:


Beginning on Monday, April 10th and continuing during regular class hours until May 3rd, the ACT Aspire test will be given to ALL 10th and 9th grade students.

These tests measure academic strengths and weaknesses, determine college acceptance, Hathaway scholarship levels and readiness for future careers or education. It is vital that students attend these test sessions and are prompt.

Late students cannot be allowed into testing rooms once the test scripts have begun and students who miss their regular test session time will have to miss other class time to make up the exam.  We would appreciate appointments and other circumstances that would require students to miss school be scheduled outside this window.  

 Attention JUNIORS:

On Wednesday, April 19th, ALL juniors are required by state statute to take the ACT test.  The ACT is used by colleges, universities and other trade and training programs to determine placements and scholarships, in addition to measuring academic competence.

The tests begin PROMPTLY at 7:45 am on the 19th. ALL STUDENTS are required to show a valid picture I.D. to enter the testing rooms.  Your school ID, or driver’s license will work.  You are responsible for being familiar with ACT’s guidelines for acceptable ID. Go to or see the counselors or Mrs. Emerson in the main office for ID.

If you arrive late, you will be assigned to an ISS room for the nearly 4.5 hours of testing and will be required to re-test on a different day.  BE ON TIME, BISON! 

PARENTS: Please be aware that no announcements, messages or passes are allowed to be delivered during testing, nor are students allowed to leave unless they violate security procedures or do any of the prohibited behaviors during the test. Students will be testing from 7:45am until approximately 12:30pm that day.

IMPORTANT REMINDER – the ACT doesn’t allow ANY electronics, books, purses, backpacks, food or drink in the testing rooms. Please leave these items home that day or in your locker until the tests are over. Students who bring those items to the testing center will be removed from testing, their tests will be voided and they may be suspended for the duration of testing.

Seniors are not required to attend school that day. Freshmen and Sophomores will have a half-day and are released at 11:15.  They will be involved in other activities since regular classes cannot be held during the ACT.

FINALLY - Make sure to wear comfortable clothes, eat a good breakfast and get plenty of rest the night before testing. If you or your parents have any questions about the tests, please contact Mr. Backman or Mrs. Simpson.

What makes south special?

The South High school community is strong because we are committed to challenging and supporting each student in their educational journey.  We offer a comprehensive course of study including a broad array of Advanced Placement (AP) and Concurrent Enrollment classes, diverse elective programs including technology and the arts, and a state-of-the art school facility.

ELO (Extended Learning Opportunity)

Built into our class schedule, ELO is a time when students can meet with their teachers to get extra help on classwork or homework.

Concurrent Enrollment courses

In cooperation with Laramie County Community College (LCCC) and Sheridan College, south High School offers courses that allow for concurrent enrollment college credit.  Students who successfully complete concurrent enrollment courses earn high school credit and college credit while attending South High School. Students can also take approved dual credit courses at no charge at LCCC that will be recorded on both their high school transcript and college transcript.

Advanced placement (ap)

At South High School we understand the importance of AP classes to prepare students for college and career readiness.  We offer a rigorous course of study including many different AP classes: Studio Art 3-D, 2-D and Drawing, Spanish, English Literature & Composition, English Language, Statistics, Calculus AB & BC, Biology, Physics, Environmental Science, US History, Government & Politics, World Geography, Human Geography, Macroeconomics, World History, Psychology, and Music Theory.   Why do AP? Extensive Recognition AP is recognized by approx. 3,400 American colleges and universities, which grant credit, advanced placement, or both for AP courses and exam grades.  Colleges and universities understand the value of AP for preparing students to succeed in rigorous university courses. Access and Equity AP promotes open access to students who may excel in only one or two academic disciplines. The AP Program is designed to give all students an opportunity to challenge themselves with a rigorous academic experience.
