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.
