Just bc the skool has shooting or an imposter doesn't make it a bad skool... I go to sghs n I personaly like it.. N I feel safe... Admin might not seem like they care but they do they just have busy schedules...wat skool doesn't have problems...plus the shooting was not the skools fault it was the two kids who had problems wit eachother n didn't kno how to solve them... Neither sghs or sehs is ghetto... The only ghetto ppl were those two boy who thought the only way to fix things was to shoot it out... Don't hate on the skool...

The sad thing is that education is their ticket out of being poor and illeterate but they don't value it. They value the things that they have and not who they are. They smile now but they will be crying later for a long long time. Its better to cry now and smile later.

Who is your English teacher? I'm sure he/she wouldn't be very proud of you after reading your post. I understand there is a difference between proper grammar and internet lingo, but based on the topic you probably should have put a little more effort in trying to prove your point on South Gate not being ghetto.

Maybe you should just home school your children once you learn correct English. "Mines" is not a word.

I completely agree with the teachers comment. This school is not safe at all!!! I had an isuue with my daughter seeing a non student of south gate high school. I went in to talk to the counselor ( Mrs. Rodriguez) and she said I was over reacting that it was impossible for them to keep track of all the people that went in and out. she also stated that they had other MORE important things to worry about. I was so upset that day and sick to my stomach. I am a parent that is interested in my children education and this school has no interest in helping me. All the gates around the school are open. I drop off my children and its so easy for them to just walk out. My daughter might not be her priority BUT IT IS MINES!! My two chldren will not be attending South Gate next year.

South Gate High School is a joke ! lazy as administrators the school is a disappointment all they care is the incentives for kids showing up they get from the federal government for attendance.

Go to a real school like Verbum Dei High School. Not a lazy school like SGHG it's full of getto people. Girls end up being moms. Students end up not gong to college & dropping out. Best advices don't go there.

no school is safe i was a student in south gate high and i had no help from teachers or counselors. even the adult school sucks over there the only way u can get your diploma is to be a kiss ass to the teachers. point is i remember that shooting and how that scene took place. Also in 2011 i believe it was that 3 hour lock down after school crap i was there with a group of my friends. but i also see news of elementary schools and even south east high article no one is safe theres always a problem in the schools. i say not only work on discipline in school but raise protection laws in the school. But young teenagers will rebel against this idea because they'll think their freedom has been taken away and probably more reasons but what gives me a headache about this school is that even through all that drama they still have not improved anything what so ever.
