Southfield is a excellent school! It offers so many wonderful programs that the kids are truly excited about learning. The kids seem to support and help each other. They also teach great values. It's a nice small environment. All of the faculty and staff are very supportive. The class size is smaller here too. It's an investment but one I don't regret and am thankful I did. I have had others comment to me about how much my kids have learned since they have been going to Southfield School. A biggie is no violence or worry about your child's safety. It's a very friendly, family oriented school. I could go on forever! It's a wonderful place to be! Check it out.

I attended Southfield and have enrolled my children there as well. Excellent school; well worth the tuition.

My 2 kids went to Southfield for the last 11 years - preschool-3 through the 8th grade. It is the highest quality school, private or public, in this area. It was worth every penny and the best investment we could have made in our kids' futures.

The Southfield School has been an extraordinary school! The teachers, students and staff are head and shoulders above the rest. There is tremendous pride throughout the school. Everyone has been so very helpful and caring throughout the year. I am very impressed with what my child has learned both in and out of the classroom. My child has blossomed at Southfield School.

I am now on child number three at this school, I can say without reservation that it is a wonderful, nuturing institution. The children are taught in an excellent environment by caring teachers and staff. It is worth the money invested in our childrens education. having your 1st grader come home and explain diphthong and schwa to you is an elevating experience.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
