So far this school has been better than I expected. My child received special ed support for speech and RSP and the difference in terms of how it was at the very beginning compared to the second and third trimester was remarkable. Also my child's regular teacher is amazing, super caring and always open to help and find solutions as needed. Hope to have the same good luck next year.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE SOUTHGATE my child has been attending for almost 7-years and I have a another child soon to start this year. I only experienced my child having one terrible teacher and that's CHILDRESS smh but you cant win them all. I do agree with some of the parents below children is allowed to correct homework and on several occasions I noticed answers was correct, BUT MARKED INCORRECT and I pointed it out to the teacher and she did not change the homework to reflect correct or change the grade. I have never met a teacher who gives most of the kids in the class D's within the first two weeks of school smh SHAME ON YOU 5TH GRADE TEACHER. On a better note the office staff is always friendly and upbeat. I have never experience a moment when I have walked in and not been acknowledge right away in thats out of 6-years. My children and I look forward to another wonderful year at southgate...TEACHERS AND STAFF KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!

My three children attended Southgate. This school is full of incompetent teachers. I have even dealt with an abusive Kindergarten teacher who would yell at her students. The teachers do not pay attention to what is going on in their own classroom such as kids demonstrating inappropriate behavior. This school is not safe as the staff make it so that the children are afraid to report anything that happens for fear that all people involved will get in trouble even when they were the one being picked on. Teachers don't even grade their own homework and return papers asking for the child to correct the assignment when it is correct but mistakenly marked as incorrect by a student. I am so happy for my children to be out of this horrible school.

My children have attend and one will graduate in the coming year... I have appreicated the values and the teamwork that this school has installed in my students... the teachers have been able to challenge my student to make sure he works to the best of his ability. Thanks

I have been with Southgate for almost 7 years now and I love the staff and administrators. Southgate has a great academic program and the teachers go above and beyond to help all of the children that attend Southgate. I only wish that the parents of the students got more involved with the school and there childrens education. Southgates demise is not the teachers of the administration it's the lack of parental involvement. If we could turn that aspect around, Southgate would be a 5 star school.

Southgate is a great school. They have plenty of school activities to keep the students busy. My kids love the Wednesdays homework club and the Gate program is excellent too. My spouse and I always volunteer for the Jog-a-thon, field trips, and the Field Day. They are a lot of fun. You get to meet a lot of students my kids socialize with. I just wish more parents would volunteer for these activities as well.

I think that this is the best public elementary school in Hayward. The class sizes are not to big, the parents are involved in the school and the principal is great.

My daughter is in the 1st grade; she was transferred from a charter school. I have noticed that what she has learned so far at Southgate is very little 70% of what she knows she learned at her old school. I wish the instructors had a little more experience in teaching.
