Southgate Community Schools: The best choice for students and parents


Our student body consists of 1221 students in grades nine through twelve.


Southgate originally had TWO high schools! Southgate High School and Schafer High School. Southgate Anderson High School opened its doors for the first time September 8, 1982 with approximately 1,400 students. During the 1981-82 school year staff members from Schafer and Southgate High Schools held numerous meetings and provided enormous input into curriculum, selecting books, altering rooms, organizing teaching materials, and assisting with the physical move. The students also contributed to a smooth transition to one high school.

Combining two high school athletic programs into one during the 1981-82 school year was not only successful, but laid a sound foundation to build upon. Student Councils from both high schools wrote a new constitution, elected officers, and assisted in selecting a school name, colors, and mascot. In October, 1982 Anderson students welcomed and entertained the alumni from the previous schools with a Homecoming Parade, football games, festivities, and dances. On November 6, 1982 a formal ceremony was held to officially dedicate the building, and to honor a very special person, Representative Thomas J. Anderson.

Promotion and Retention Policy

Southgate Community School District is committed to educational practices that are effective in enhancing the educational attainment of all students. Numerous studies have demonstrated that retention does not improve students’ chances for educational success. Therefore, the practice of retention will be used only when there is compelling evidence that the student is likely to benefit academically and/or socially.

Downriver Career and Technical Consortium

The Downriver Career Technical Consortium (DCTC) was founded 40 years ago as a way for three local school districts to share vocational education programs.Over the years, the DCTC has grown and adapted to meet the ever changing needs of our evolving world. The DCTC now consists of 10 local school districts that share 24 programs. School districts served by DCTC include Airport, Allen Park, Flat Rock, Gibraltar, Grosse Ile, Huron, Riverview, Southgate, Trenton, and Woodhaven-Brownstown.


The objective of a career technical class is to provide a very sophisticated training experience for the student while they are still in high school, so upon graduation they might directly enter the labor market or continue on for advanced training in the chosen career area. Toward this end, the career technical programs have adopted the curriculum developed by the State of Michigan, which provides for training that has been identified as being necessary for each specific occupational area.
