The teachers are great and my grandson doesn't want to leave when its time to be picked up.
Everybody who works there is friendly, outgoing, and helpful! The teachers actually care about the kids, not just numbers!
I have found Southside to be the perfect learning enviornment for my children. Compared to other schools it's small caring environment supersedes all others. I look forward to sending all my children there. The staff seem to really care about what parents think. They also look beyond sterotypes and expect the best from each student. Sure there have been problems but when they arise they are addressed immediately and a solution found. I think it is a GREAT school.
The leadership seems to enjoy a power struggle. They have turned the AR program into a punishment instead of the rewards program that is was designed to be. Not enough emphasis is placed on the basics. They seem to be teaching only for the Cats testing. They have even taking away the children's recess except for Fridays. The children now must attend study halls instead of having recess on the other four days.
