Council Rock High School South is a high school located in Holland, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It is operated by the Council Rock School District.

The school was built in 2002 in order to address the overpopulation at what was then the district's only high school, now known as Council Rock High School North. South currently serves grades 9-12 and houses over 2000 students.

The school colors are blue, white, and gold, and the sports teams are known as The Golden Hawks.

Bomb threats[edit]

On November 8, 2006, two bomb threats were directed at both Council Rock High School South and Council Rock High School North. Seven teams of bomb dogs went into both high schools the next day. There were three more bomb threats directed at Council Rock South the morning the school opened after the initial threat to both schools.[2] The school received another bomb threat on January 23, 2007. The threat was written on a bathroom wall.[3] No bombs were found in the school during any of the incidents. Another threat was received in early 2010, but the threat was determined not credible, and the student responsible has since been expelled.
