Link Crew
We are upperclassmen who serve as school ambassadors in welcoming new students and families to South High.

Math Team
The South Math Team is a member of the Minnesota State High School Mathematics League. Students from every program can participate. Like every „sports‟ activity, it is good to have students begin as freshman and practice so that junior and senior years they can be scorers on the team. Students in Math League attend five meets where they compete in events that roughly follow the mathematics curriculum. Those not selected for the team can still participate and accumulate points toward individual scoring honors. Each team is in a division and the top teams and individuals are recognized at an awards ceremony. They are invited to the state tournament and on the basis of their performance over the year and on other national tests, 30 students are picked for Minnesota‟s All-Star Teams. These are sent to the national tournament. This activity is also an excellent way to meet other students who enjoy math and to sharpen both math and math testing skills.

The Maze
The Maze is a literary magazine, publishing the written works of students, first screened by our student-run editorial board. We accept submissions of poetry, essays, short stories and fiction, as well as illusrations, artwork and photography.

Mixed

National Honor Society (NHS)
South High NHS is a student run organization, led by elected student officers, under the guidance of a faculty advisor. The organization is chartered under state and national organization guidelines. South High NHS consists of junior and senior student leaders. The academic minimum, a 3.5 GPA, is a basic standard of excellence, which must be maintained throughout a student‟s membership. Applications will be taken in the spring of each year for the following year, and reviewed by a faculty council. Membership is a privilege and not a right. Selected members have the option of serving on one of four different committees, to include Academic, Environmental, Community Service, and School Events. Each member must contribute a minimum 30 hours of service each year in the three areas of tutoring, recycling, and community service. Additionally, students must help facilitate at two different NHS sponsored events during the course of the year. Major events sponsored by NHS during the course of the year include the Sadie Hawkins Dance, various leadership
retreats, the Talent Show, and TAPPP Holiday Party for student parents and their children. NHS also sponsors many community outreach projects.

Open Directional Council (ODC)
The student-led leadership organization that helps govern the open program. This group is made up of students from all grades. In the past they have organized retreats and written the open student handbook.
