This is a very nice school to attend. It has some of the nicest teachers here and the quality of learning is magnificent. They express their concerns at PTA meetings & emails sent out to the parents.its a school that takes pride in its learning skills , as well as a safe environment to protect our kids when we are not around. No questions are left unanswered here at Southview Middle School . They even have nice electives to choose from too. Their staff is very nice too & very well organized. Thanks Southview Middle for being your best at what you do !!!!!!
