South Shores Elementary School 4

As a parent I really like this school! The teachers show a genuine concern for the children's well being and education. We have a new Principal and he's shaken things up a bit in regards to parental involvement and a family atmosphere. Individual Education Programs are a blessing it means the teachers want to assure each child is learning at their needed level, much harder to teach this way. IEP's allow the teachers to break the students out of the cookie cutter stick to the book curriculum (for Gifted and educationally challenged students alike). My son loves this school!

I found the school to be uncaring and too many IEP students per room with the class load to large. The Principal needs more education when being a principle .

Teachers at this school make every effort to help children learn. Students have made AYP every year for the last six years!

South Shores has excellent academic programs with a strong emphasis on reading and mathematics and a focus on science. Over 400 parents and family members attended each of the fall events this year...Open House and Fall Festival. A 'Science Experience' night is planned for November. Art lessons are provided by a volunteer and by the Education Foundation to all students. An Art Display event is planned for the spring of 07. Weekly vocal music lessons, instrumental lessons and a 'bucket' percussion band round out the music program. Parents and families are involved in PTA, volunteer tutoring and classroom work. Sports include basketball and PE classes.
