Southside Estates Elementary School
Develops respect: Strongly disagree

The school has a very authoritarian rule with the children, to the point that children are indoctrinated in the classroom and fear having their own opinions even when asked, like when it's an assignment.

The school can't developed in the students what they do not display in their own behavior for children to witness or emulate.

Much of the staff, teachers, and especially the principal is dishonest and the children realize this and don't trust them only fear them. The adults at this school aren't creating respect and a good example for these students.

Ms. Solomon, Ms. Kelso, and Ms. Traeye are all amazing and wonderful teachers who truly care about their students and how they are doing

One teacher can give too much, others are ok. Most teachers really push online learning instead of actually working with the kids themselves

Students are laughed at and bullied by staff. Mrs. Robinson in particular laughed at my kid when a very serious problem occurred and had no remorse whatsoever for it.Other bad experiences with staff have also occured

Absolutely HORRIBLE school. Please...RUN NOW. Very few good teachers here. If you are a parent dealing with this school, I am so sorry. WORST SCHOOL EVER. Its worth every minute driving your children elsewhere!!! There is great reason it has a very LOW rating with scores...and after multiple bad experiences with this place...I am so glad I pulled both my kids from this dump!

Very poor communication between staff and parents. The teachers and staff don't communicate, they expect the children to do any communication for them. They get communication amongst themselves wrong. Blame children for miscommunication. The school fails to inform parents on important events and give children written details on assignments. The principal is a rare sight. If you do get the rare opportunity to see the principal who's not hiding in her tower, she makes ridiculous excuses about the failures of the school.

Southside Estates Elementary School is an excellent school. I have identical twin granddaughters attending this school and they love this school. Their father(a single parent), and I love this school too. This school has an excellent principal, vice principal, teachers, coach, office personnel, cafeteria, custodians, etc. Everyone seems to be interested in the well=being of the students and family. A situation occurred which involved one of my granddaughters, and the principal, Dr. Washington and the vice principal, Mrs. DeLay, and the staff went to work immediately to resolve the problem and they did resolve it. My granddaughters came to Southside Estates from a private school and the progress they have made at Southside Estates makes the private school look like "no school." Thank you Southside!!! Pat,RN
