Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
absolutely not, in the case of one of my kids exactly the opposite. They showed him its ok just to give in, give up and achieve less.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
they do not inspire learning, if your child is not already motivated at home, they will not get attention from staff.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
although they may seem to be giving homework the kids get most done in class because a lot of staff has 10 minutes of instruction and 30 minutes of independent work time as they call it, a lot of open book/ note tests, take home tests, and a very small grade percentage for completes homework most less then 10% of the overall grade.

I have two children in this school that transferred from a in district elementary school. The school uses a team teaching. Only works for staff to side step responsibilities to the individual student. in the case of one of my children, they completely missed his educational issues to begin with and then gave up on him. All they wanted to do from that point is deny him opportunities, the team devalued homework, didn't provide any assistance to help him get back on track, only wanted to remove him from Spanish class. If your child is average its not allowed only gifted and certified special needs kids are the only kids that matter to this school. all staff should be treated as dis honest and dis genuine in their convictions to there vocation. All the problems that come with grossly over paid people.

Handles bullying effectively: Disagree


- a
Do to the limited ability of staff and administration, to review and analyze a situation, they are mainly ineffectual. Bullying is part of the environment in this District.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
They are late on all services, even after testing, so the child never really benefits from the minimal support they actually provide. Mainly at the middle school level. Kids are not properly prepared for High School.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The staff and Administration are very laid back, and show the kids daily how doing less Is better. Classroom staff is obsessed with social media and internet use which has drastically cut instructional time. My children tell me their teachers spend more time in class with their faces in their phones then they do on the days lesson.

I'm really happy to be going to this school in the fall it is so big and beautiful the people who work there are super nice I couldn't ask for more

South is a tremendous middle school. The outstanding dedicated teachers, wonderful principal and administrative leaders, friendly office staff, and positive environment are an asset to the AH community. The academics at South are superb. This school truly embraces innovation and its role in today's classroom and curriculum. We love that South is always looking to improve upon what we think is already a fabulous place for kids to learn and grow. Bravo Cardinals!

My school is South Middle School. The school may be doing a good job academically, but it's staff has been doing a poor job of demonstrating how to be a good neighbor and a good citizen. A few examples. When the school s parking lot is plowed, rather than using its two block square open field, the snow is pilled high on adjacent the public sidewalk, making it impassible. Aggregate scraped from the asphalt during plowing is deposited on the walkway and not cleared after the snow melts. Bike riding students don t observe basic traffic laws on streets or when using the walkways. Each day I see them ignoring stop signs, and/or approaching pedestrians from behind without sounding an alert Supervisors of outdoor track activities start races with starter pistols, disturbing the peaceful enjoyment of the surrounding properties with sounds of gunshots. The school is posted banning dogs, but doesn't enforce district policy unless it interferes with a class. Off-leash dogs are frequently exercised on this property, due to lack of enforcement. Those who attend South Middle Schools are learning to lack consideration for the community.
