South Shore is an amazing school. Love that the school is a PYP candidate school. The staff is warm and welcoming. The principal seems concerned about each child. The PYP coordinator takes time to answers questions families have about the program, and is always accessible even though she is not here each day. She is a former teacher at South Shore so she seems to get the school and the kids, and is very easy to talk to. Classroom teachers teach by questioning. We love that inquiry is a such a big part of the pyp program here. The cultural arts team is amazing. My child comes home excited each and every day. Could not be more thrilled for her elementary school experience. I only wish that each elementary school was like South Shore.

South Shore is a great school. It has smaller classes than average for Anne Arundel. The teachers and administrators are top class. There is strong parent participation and support.

As good or better than a private school. Our neighbors all have their kids in private schools. My son is at the same level or better in his level of learning. I look at the progress of my son has made in Kindergarten. He is reading full books, adding and subtracting, and able to do logic problems. I'm %100 pleased with his progress. The principal is fantastic. She takes a interest in all the students. When my son began Kindergarten they decided there were too many children for 2 classes and created a third class. Not many schools do that today. They just cram them together.

A hidden gem! We're fortunate to be part of this exceptional school community where our child thrives. Teachers here are creative, committed, and caring. Small classes and a small student body, plus active parental involvement all add up to a vibrant school central to its community. Great learning environment--we can't imagine being anywhere else!!

My grandkids attend - The teachers are very hands on, creative and enthusiastic. Principle Ferrara is also hands on and takes the time to know the students. This school also thrives to be a Green school, teaching the children to respect the Earth.

We are pretty new to South Shore and while we love the small class size and how the staff know your children by face/name and are very friendly, I am somewhat dissapointed that there is not more help for children who are having difficulty in certain areas. My son is struggling with math but there is not after school help available to him at South Shore.

We have two children at SS and ccouldn't be happier. This is like a private school with small teacher/pupil ratios, rigorous academics and teachers that care.

My husband and I have four children that attend South Shore Elementary school. I cannot say enough about the quality of teachers and their interest in teaching and guiding my children through their elementary school years. All my children play instruments musical, and are involved in many of the extracurricular activities the school offers. My oldest is graduating South Shore and moving to a local middle school. Both my husband and I are very sad to see her leave. It is truly a wonderful school and a wonderful environment.

My child has only been attending south shore elementary for a short time. However, in that time frame, my special education student is receiving quality services by a knowledgeable and compassionate special education teacher. His regular education classroom teacher works very hard to accomodate his needs. She is implimenting strategies that my third grader was never before allowed to utilize in school that make a tremendous impact on his learning. I am completely thrilled with the education staff that i have come in contact with at south shore.
