Fargo South High School, more commonly known as Fargo South or South High, is a public high school located in Fargo, North Dakota. The campus serves about 1,100 students in grades 9-12. The school is a part of the Fargo Public Schools system. The official school colors are brown and gold and the athletic teams are known as the Bruins.


Fargo South High School was built when the previous school, Fargo Central High School, burned down in 1966. Students from Central High finished the ‘66 school year at Fargo North High School and spent the 1966-67 school year at North High during the construction of a new school.

The new facility in South Fargo became South High and the “Bruins” christened their new high school with the beginning of the ‘67-68 school year.[1]
