Welcome to South High School—Home of the Spartans!

We are glad you’ve dropped by online to see us as we are always excited to share the amazing things that are happening at South. We love to meet our families and show off our beautiful campus and the many wonderful programs and opportunities our students are engaged in. Our dedicated staff prides itself on supporting our students and engaging in ongoing self-reflection in the pursuit of excellence.

I have been a proud resident and high school educator in the Torrance Unified School District for over 30 years. In June of 2020 when I had the opportunity to transfer to South, I jumped at it. I’d long been aware of South’s reputation for excellence and was not disappointed.  Despite the pandemic, or perhaps in spite of it, the dedication of teachers and staff and the amazing, resilient students were a bright spot in hard times. 

Our students are our joy. In addition to their achievement in a wide range of academic coursework, our students shine through involvement in a wide variety of clubs, athletic teams, robust fine arts programs, and multiple career pathway courses. Campus life is vibrant and full of rich opportunities for students—it’s a wonderful place to be.

Looking ahead, we remain dedicated to continuing our support for students. Our vision is for all students to find success and achievement in their programs of study as well as to feel a sense of connection and belonging as essential members of the South High family. We believe every student has a unique voice and are committed to helping them take ownership of their part in creating a better school, community, and planet.

Thank you for visiting us online. If you are soon joining or are already a part of the South family, we look forward to interacting with you in person. If you’d like to learn more about South or have any questions, please contact us anytime.
