This school impresses me on a daily basis. The principal of the school is amazing and incredible involved in the day to day. The professional staff is top notch and foster an environment where ALL kids - no matter their limitations - feel a sense of belonging. The school teaches independence and confidence in the children and reinforces the importance of kindness and community. The PTO is incredibly involved and offer lots of opportunity for involvement. The social events are fun and always create lots of buzz.

At South Elementary School, I learned that my mental and physical health should always come second to my schoolwork; administration was something to be feared, not respected; that the bullying I endured was my fault, not the bullies' (I apparently just needed to "stop reacting" to harassment. The harassers were never punished); and that my ADHD and disgraphia rendered my gifted status null and void (and were the results of my "not trying hard enough"). I would like to thank South Elementary School for their reluctance to accept my limitations, refusal to see me as human, victim-blaming, insensitivity, and general incompetence. I am so grateful to have spent almost a decade in therapy unlearning the lessons this elementary school gave me.

Fantastic facitlity, curiculuum and environment for children. Tending toward overcrowding but still a fabulous school. Children work hard and the assignments are challenging. Teachers have been excellent. I have 2 children (boy & girl) in 3 & 5th grades. Both have done very well and have been nurtured at this school.
