South Forsyth High School is a 10-acre campus in southern Forsyth county, about 40 minutes north of Atlanta focused on providing a world-class education for the 21st century learner. It is one of six (6) schools in the Georgia High School Association's Region 6-AAAAAAA classification.
Opened as an official high school in 1989, South Forsyth High originally operated as South Forsyth Junior High. The building later received a middle school addition, which allowed the high school to operate separately. A new South Forsyth Middle was built on other property in 1998, which allowed South Forsyth High to have its own campus. Additionally, students were moved to South Forsyth High from Forsyth County High, which was over student capacity. Mr. Mike Weaver was the school’s first principal. Since its opening, the school has received numerous renovations and additions, including a major addition which connected the two separate buildings on campus and added a new main office, counseling office, classrooms, and a dining hall; a state-of-the-art digital display scoreboard, new turf, and a new concession building for the football stadium; a new ticket booth and clubhouse for the baseball field; and lighting and sound upgrades to the Performing Arts Center.
With over 2400 students, over 200 faculty, staff and administrators, and over 130 classrooms, it is a thriving, bustling community of teachers, learners, athletes, performers, and achievers!
Past and present principals include Mike Weaver, Scott Smith, Art Wheaton, Brenda Colby, Richard Gill, Gary Davison, Jason Branch, Jeff Cheney, and Laura Wilson.
