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.
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!
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.
