This school has gone downhill since my first child started here in 2005. The PTA is not very active. There were few schoolwide activities this year. The teachers are caring and top notch. I would like to see more activities for the children.
The school is a real family atmosphere! The staff go out of their way to make everyone feel at home!
It is an excellent school with wonderful, caring, creative and dedicated teachers. Great support from the administration. There are constant meetings to help the staff learn new ideas on how to help children. It is a true family!
I love Southwood because of its diversity and their aproach to education.
Southwood is a unique school built on a constructivist approach to education, allowing students the opportunity to 'own' their education by being actively involved rather than listening to lectures. It integrates all aspects of education with child development to reach every learner!
Southwood is a very unique elementary school that gives their students the opportunity to grow not only academically but also into great citizens of their community. I am proud to say that I work at this awesome school with wonderful support from my co-workers and administration. Southwood is an A school and is #1! :)
Our school has a very dedicatd staff that strives to meet each child where they are and move them to higher levels in learning. We provide a safe and caring environment where each student can try new ideas and ways of solving problems and develop higher thinking skills.
Our school is and has been an A+ school for many years because of the dedicated staff, teachers, parents and community supporters. Yes we are #1.
Southwood is a wonderful school to help children grow and learn as human beings.

My daughter had teachers that impacted her education in creative ways that only Teachers who Care could make a Difference!
A rated all the way. and the teachers are incredible always. the principle Mrs. storch only hires the best for our children. and the school is very innovative in its thinking keeping it fresh and up to date.
Outstanding program! The teachers are very talented, the administration truly cres about the welfare of the students, and there is a clear sense of teamwork among the staff! A great school!
Great School - good, caring teachers and students. Doesn't have any extra activities if your child is not into music. We like it here but would like to see the test scores improve compared to our neighbor schools.
Fantastic school! The administration has been wonderfully supportive!
