During the 2010-2011 school year, South High consisted of about 480 freshmen and sophomores. With the addition of a freshman class next year, South High will become a grade 9–12 school in the fall of 2012 with an expected enrollment of approximately 1,200 students total.
The school has an auditorium that seats 743 people and the entire school has wireless Internet. Kitchens are built off foreign language rooms so students can cook ethnic foods. Industrial-style stoves are provided in the culinary class kitchens. South High also has classrooms and equipment for welding, construction, drafting, auto mechanics and health occupations.
