Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
We employ PBiS for conflict resolution. Trends show fewer bullying reports than years past.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
Lots of kids on the entire learning spectrum, from those who need intervention, to highly gifted and twice exceptional. We have a school psychologist 4 days to help meet social/emotional needs too.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
We have more organizations and other schools coming to tour our building and learn from us than I can count! There are amazing things happening within our walls.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Mighty Moose are responsible, respectful, collaborative and kind.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
My son has already advanced to middle school and tested into advanced math and language arts...it's all because of his foundation at Southmoor


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Just this year, Southmoor has implemented a homework policy so parents know what to expect year-to-year.



- a
Eight students leaving the Hgt Program, which was designed to meet their very special needs, is indicative of a very troubled school. Poor leadership, lack of action by DPS Administration have made Southmoor a joke for many parents, community members, and education professionals.



- a
Twenty-five formal complaints to DPS regarding the principal's behavior towards many parents and more than twenty-five former staff is hardly indicative of a well-functioning school. Community Member




- a
My family has had children at this school for almost 10 years and we have seen such tremendous change and growth. The school looks at every child and their individual level, and has in place opportunities for them to succeed. Whether getting extra intervention if they are behind or being challenged if they are ready for it. They look at the children's individual learning styles as well. Project based learning, maker-space, enrichment programs, great use of technology. Negative comments come from a VERY small minority. Teachers are happy and feel empowered to shape their classroom and teaching. Principal is engaging and helpful. No school is perfect and change can be difficult, but Southmoor is a great place!

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
My child has personally experienced the kind of support he needed when he was struggling with a core skill and I've known many others who have had similar experiences. The teachers are all focused on differentiated learning and finding ways to support kids however they need it.
