The entire article is unreferenced. Even though this information is possibly correct, it isn't credible without proper citation. Whoever wrote the sections of this article should cite the areas of the external links that they used. Edit: Never mind, I was mistaken. Nearly all of the external links are direct links to the school; the citations to verifiable information must be to links independent to the school. In other words, the referenced links must not be published or written by South Hills High School itself.

I've fixed the neutrality of this article. I'm going to assume that a majority of those who write this article are currently attending high school, so I'm going to give some pointers about writing sections in Wikipedia articles. Remember that you must keep neutrality, which means that you cannot use any words that have a positive or negative connotation to it. You also cannot use words such as many, lots of, etc; because they are not definitive and able to be proven. Statements in a Wikipedia article speak for themselves; as long as you write that "South Hills High School's reputation is a prime selling point for the real estate in and around the Covina area," the reputation speaks for itself and thus one does not need to state that SHHS has a "great" reputation.

I'm removing the list of universities that recent or past graduates have attended. This seems unnecessary at best, and at worst makes this article look like promotional material for this school.

I think the tables for classes currently offered is a bit much as well. Other school entries also list their courses, and the tables take up way too much space. I don't mind the AP chart as much as the Honors courses chart though; Honors courses aren't anything special at all. Do the classes even deserve to be written in a list in a paragraph? I may delete them in the near future.

I've also just realized that the "Currently Offered?" doesn't work at all. If you were going to say that, then you'd have to list EVERY AP or Honors course available at any California High School and mark it with an X instead of a check mark it if WASN'T offered. I'm removing the Honors courses chart, and I will type the AP courses into a paragraph when I get the chance.
