Love this school - the last 2 years have been better than the previous years. Have 2 children - 1st child went through South -was not impressed 2nd child now in 5th grade and we are very happy with the new principle and the way communication is flowing. Good job!
I am surprised at the old postings. There is a new principle at the school but i thought the old one was very good. The school is filled with pictures on the walls of kids art and projects, there are constantly events going on. There could be more programs for gifted kids but overall i am plased.
I feel as though I'm very rarely kept informed. Notices and up to date information is very few and far between which has me calling the school quite often for updates or verification. I have however, had positive experiences with my child's teachers.
'Not impressed' would be putting it lightly. The principal is consistently dishelveled, and has no tact in speaking to mixed groups of parents and children. The curriculum is handed down through the teachers with an equally disheveled approach that leads to many unfinished attempts, very little student activities and never quite enough information being sent to the parents. Sadly dissapointed in South school's lack of efforts in improving the behaviors in their facility.
