School Layout

Salina South is a brown building distinctly recognized by its three "pods" (circular hallways named the 200, 300, and 400 Pods). Salina South also features doorless classrooms with faux walls. The building has few windows. The school also houses a library, two gymnasiums, an indoor pool with a separate diving section, and auditorium complete with stage and props for plays. Although the school is for the most part single-storied, there is an upstairs office above the library, a basement floor beneath the main office, and a basement floor beneath one of the gymnasiums.

Extracurricular activities




In 2000, the football team won the 5A state championship with a victory over Pittsburg High School. The football team repeated as state champions in 2004 with a victory over Olathe North High School.
