About South

In order to make that vision a reality, we aspire to ensure that all adults are treasure hunters and every youth is a time traveler. Treasure hunters search for the skills, talents and intelligences in all children/youth. Time travel is the ability to envision one’s future in home & family, education & career, community & service, and hobbies & recreation and create a plan for developing the skills needed to experience success in life’s destination points. For more information contact South Mountain High School (602-764-5000) or visit www.kidsathope.org
