Not a good school at all. Awesome teachers, but not much they can do to improve bad misbehaved students. The principal and vice principal could use more experience.

I am an involved parent at South Pointe Elementary School. The teachers and administration are very professional and work very hard with all kinds of children. They do not turn their backs on kids and they do not pass the buck. My child is a 5th grader and has had an incredible year of learning.

As parents we are not happy with this school. I believe the staff is doing the best they can but many of the students are misbehaved which causes disruption in the classroom. Many students are not up to grade level which causes the few that are above to not get the attention and material they need to continue to excel. My son is in the 5th grade and has attended since 3rd grade. He has not done one report and seldom if at all has homework. The teacher he had for 3rd grade & the one he had for 4th grade no longer teaches there. His 5th grade teacher is new to the school. We tried to transfer our son after his 3rd grade year but the principle assured us that many of the troublesome students would not be allowed to return, better teachers were being hired and for us to please stay. But from our experience nothing changed. The only reason he stayed another year (poor choice) was because we believed the new teacher would have greater control of the class. The real issue is the "environment."

This school is amazing. It has free: tuiton, uniforms, transportation, tutoring, summer school program, meals, and more The after-school program they offer is great as well! They have hip hop, art, Lego robotics (STEM), remedial math, and serve dinner afterward. There are excellent ELL classes offered at this school. The teachers care about the students and the students care about the teachers. There is always hugging and it is an incredible safe environment. Great student to teacher ratio as well!

South Pointe Elementary is the Best School In Phoenix. The entire staff welcomes each child with open arms and a commitment for Excellence. The school really helps parents be parents and supports families that are in need. Everything is FREE and that is incredible. My children get free tutoring, free summer school, free uniforms and free love. Try beating that neighborhood schools with your $40 dollar uniform shirts and $65 dollar transportation fees for dropping children off 3 miles from home. South Pointe puts safety & education first!!!

I am also a parent from that same class of 30. i beg to differ with the May 2010 posting, my son recievedone-on-one time and flourished.This campus is a family environment . If you knew the rule "stop at the office first" and are there to regularly pick up your child there would not be a need for a teacher to ask your name. I have never recieved a call home about behavior and my child made the principals list. This school tries to help ALL children....they do not selct the children they deal with everyday and they manage the academic side as well ad help with some serious behavior prblems-I visit my child's class everyday and love the things I see. He is learning-that is the purpose of school not to babysit

my overall rating is zero because this was my first year having a child in school and south pointe elementary was a nightmare 30 kids in the kindergarten class my son never got one on one time unless he was in trouble they call you for any reason to pick up your kid they try to tell you your child has some kind of disorder just to try to get rid of you after your child made the 100th day they really lose interest in your kid i was able to walk on campus on several occasions and only once was i asked to sign in but never did the teachers ask who i was in art or p.e class someone called with the same last name as our and said to take there kid off the bus and they took my son off instead and didnt even appolgize some place

I truly love this school... This school has been closed and reopened.. It is new and improved and better than ever. The principal is a joy and truly cares for the students. Encouraging growth and developing great social skills. The curriculum is challenging which is what our kids need to get and stay motivated about school. The experience has just been delightful and i love the staff there.. Simply a joy, friendly and warm.. Looking fwd to the new school year.

I am a former student of S.E.E.S. and I don't think you will find a better school out there. The teachers care about each and every single one of their students, even those who are not in there class. They try so hard to make sure that all of their students have the opertunity to leave their school with a degree and not a GED. The faculty is realy top notch, doing every thing in their power and budget to help as many studens as possible. Unlike some other schools in Arizona that don't care how many pass on to college, they just want good test scores. But S.E.E.S is truely unquie among all other schools I have ever been a part of.
