Southside HS is part of Atlanta Public Schools. The student body is 95% minority, and over 85% of students participated in the free/reduced lunch program (known as Title 1).
Southside has transformed from a school with less than 5% of students advancing to college to a school that now sends over 53% of students to college - in just 3 short years.
This was due to a significant grant that funded SAT tutoring classes, two dedicated college/career counselors who work with students from 9th through 12th grade, and daily seminars on the importance of attendance, study and preparation for college.
Becuase the grant expires at the end of the 2006-2007 school year, the school is faced with a funding gap.
