The most ignorant leadership!!!!!!!!!!! They ask you to submit request as parents than totally ignore without any answers.

From every experience at South Park I feel the children ARE NOT challenged at all. The teachers are nice and my kids loved going to school, but I had to hire private tutors to teach them math and reading so that they could be at a level that I felt was sufficient for their age. The school wasn't teaching them anything that I felt was useful. The biggest negative is the fact that the school DOES NOT HAVE AIR CONDITIONING!! What kind of a system is that, considering the crazy amount of taxes we are paying. We have 90 degree temps in October and summer sometimes starts as early as March. NO AC? That's not healthy. Especially when they cancel classes because of the high temps.

I am not impressed by South Park elementary school at all. It seems to me that teachers spend majority of their time on students evaluations instead of teaching. The 1st grade program is completely unstructured, majority of teachers are clueless in the class room .how to handle kids and how to teach them. Their major point of concentration is completion of the paper work . Leaves no time for teaching.

South Park is academically excellent. However, we left and went to private school because of the social isolation our children felt.

My daughter is in Kindergarden and loves attending school. South Park has a very welcoming environment and has a great community as well.

South Park Elementary School is a wonderful school. It provides an excellent education for our children. It builds a strong foundation and teaches kids what they need to succeed. Deerfield has been proven to be one of the best school districts in the state! I highly recommend South Park and Deerfield for your child's education.

Please don't be fooled by the name, this school is a very positive enviroment for children. They learn and have fun at the same time. The teachers are wonderful. But, I would have to say that this district needs to improve greatly on its math education. As I graduated here in 1997, my high school geometry class did not even know how to do long division, nor do we have much skill in thinking math, instead of just doing it. Thats pretty scary!
