Between all my children going to three different middle schools, South Pointe is by far the best. Great, supportive, hard-working administration who are available to students, parents, and teachers alike, who set the tone in terms of kids being held accountable and reaching new heights in academics and citizenship. Out of all the teachers and classes, I can find no complaints. Outstanding band program wow, wow, wow! Great campus and overall great kids. Though there is no perfect school, it is hard to find faults in this one. My kids have attended two other middle schools, one ranking a 10 and one ranking a 9 on great schools.com, and this easily outshines the others.
Seems legit. Ok, nice/helpful staff, their own news, district is pretty neat and organized. Everyone is always excited there
I am a 6th grader at SPMS. This school is awesome!! All the teachers are nice and helpful. You can also attend band, choir, and more.
My child attended all 3 years a Southpointe. We had several unpleasant interactions with at least 5 of the teachers at this school. My feeling is that some of the teachers felt they had the right to speak to the students any way they chose even if inappropriate and degrading. However, there was one staff member and one teacher who were outstanding as champions for my child and gave my child full support. Because of them I averaged my rating at 3stars. All I can say is that I will be looking for another middle School for my younger child. My younger child is an A student but she is far too sensitive for a school like Southpointe. I fear for the damage burnt out teachers could cause to her confidence. Perfect test scores does not make the perfect school! There is a certain type of child that will do well at this school. But,If your child is one who communicates with you, and you are the type that will support your child when they are poorly treated, then Southpointe may not be the school for you.
I am an 8th grader at SPMS it is the kinda school that gives you hope the teacher there help you with the skills you really need to focus on
I'm a 7th grader at SPMS. It's an AWESOME school. All of the teachers are nice and teach like pros! My favorite teacher last year (in 6th grade) Mr. Peschman! All the teachers I have had and HAVE right now are great! I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!
great, behave students. they wear uniform everyday and they are proud about it. teachers, students and the community all work together for the common good. they have an excellent band that is renowned for professionalism and excellent performance in and out of the country. great kids and school staff.
i just promoted from south pointe. It has been such a great enviroment to learn in. The teachers are also very amazing, they all care for there students and will take their time when a student needs some extra help. I personally think the band program is wonderful. The top group, wind ensamble, has been all the way to Europe to play, and they have been to carnegie hall in new york several times. Many middle school's can't offer things like that, and when you expierience it for yourself, it is a great learning expierience.
South Pointe Middle School is the greatest school of all. My daughter has changed dramatically, in a good way from when she entered the school. Their band groups are absolutely incredible. I would definitely give this school a seven out of five stars!
Im a current 8th grader at south pointe M.S Overall, the teachers are good, but i just wish that they could spend a little more 'one - one' for a student to understand the subject.
I'm a 7th grader at south pointe and I think its a great school. It's extremely challenging and theres a lot of things that you can do.I'm one of the trumpets in band and there's a lot of great pieces of music.South pointe changed my view on life, and especially music! thanks to mrs.Acciani, the band director
I wanted my son to come live with me in Los Angeles, but SPMS is such a great school I just can't bring myself to pull him out of this school. It's far better than most schools in L.A. that I have heard about. The parent involvement is superb and superior and the music curriculum is second to none. I feel we're lucky to have ended up at SPMS.
I feel that kids who are below average in there test scores are the ones who end up falling between the cracks of the school system. yes this schools has great test scores but what about the kids who need help and dont get it, there has been nothing done for them to help them bring up there grades. or there scores, the walnut valley school district cares alot about there sat9 scores that is why they allow other kids out of the district in to the district to bring up those scores the schools have about 90% asian students who are very smart kids compare to everyone else.
I'm a 8th grade student at SPMS. This is my last year at south pointe, and I have been very pleased with my time there. The school campus is the best I have ever seen for a middle school, we have great technology and a awsiome gymnasium. The teaching staff is very reliable and friendly! The SSRA's know every student by name, which is very nice(somtimes bad though). I think south pointe has changed the way i look at school.
I have a 7th grader at this school. Teachers have been very good and most of them have been challenging. Having come from a private school setting, I did not expect it to be as good academically, but to my surprise, it has. She has enjoyed the extracurricular activities that her private school did not have either.
