I hope each of you had a great summer and are ready to return to school to meet the challenges of your new classes, participate in athletics and clubs, and re-connect with friends.

We believe that we have in place at Southeast all you will need to make good choices. We have an outstanding faculty and staff whose job is to create learning experiences that will engage you; we have facilities that are conducive to learning and exploring as you move toward graduation, and we have a supportive community that sees Southeast High School as a launching pad for the hopes and dreams of young people.

 Southeast offers Dual enrollment classes through Dalton State on campus, Advance Placement, honors, and college preparatory courses. We are proud to offer many educational opportunities for our students. The Whitfield County Career Academy, a 9th – 12th grade school is available to Southeast students full or part-time. Students may also access online learning through Georgia Virtual High School.   In addition to the instructional programs, various extracurricular offerings at Southeast provide many avenues for success.

 Our goal at Southeast is to provide engaging work so that all students work at maximum levels of performance. We want to build within each student the strength of character that will become the foundation of our community and our nation’s future.

 Best wishes to each of you as you begin a new year at Southeast. Work Hard, Play Fair, Dream Big, Make a Difference, Be Proud of who you are, Make Wise Decisions and Have a Good Day. You will do well and we will be cheering you all the way!
