Guam - Just in the nick of time to prepare for the upcoming school year, Southern High School has made the grade. After today's re-inspection by the Department of Public Health, the Santa Rita campus is proud to boast an "A" rating, an improvement from the "C" rating given in May. Only two demerits were issued for air ducts that are under repair in Building 5000, which is not currently being used.
Principal James Petite said, "When these young people come back to school we want them to come back to a school that's clean; a school that's conducive to learning. You know what? When kids see people taking care of their school, I think they would want to take care of it."
Petite thanks his staff, school maintenance, and the port authority for their efforts in helping the campus to correct previous citations.
