South Programs

South High School has a tradition of excellence in academic, artistic and athletic achievement. We take pride in the many accomplishments of our students. We prize the opportunity to add your unique talent to our learning community.

South has three academic programs: All Nations, Liberal Arts and Open. All programs provide core programming and preparation for college and opportunities beyond high school.

All Nations American Indian (citywide)

Designed for American Indian students, yet open to all students, All Nations incorporates resources from the American Indian community to help students graduate in four years and prepare them for a post-secondary education. The program assists students to gain a clear vision of themselves as they develop goals beyond high school. Courses include: Ojibwe Language, Native Arts, American History from a Native Perspective, Native American Humanities and Economics/Government from a Native Perspective.

Liberal Arts

If you are looking for a stimulating, challenging and relevant education in a broad array of subjects, the Liberal Arts program could be the perfect match for you. Picture yourself immersed in the liberal arts: literature, history, mathematics, science, world languages, and independent study. The mission of the program is to help students think creatively, critically, and analytically, to communicate effectively, and to actively participate in the larger community.

Open (citywide)

The Open program focuses on interdisciplinary learning, social issues, and students’ exploration of their place in the world. Students develop their critical thinking skills through exploration, student initiative, and personal responsibility while valuing teamwork, intellectual curiosity, diversity, and community.
