Excellent experiences for both children. Both look forward to attending school each day. Including a project based curriculum helps children develop in so many different ways.

SSCPS has greatly enhanced my children's love for learning. The school fosters creativity, independence, diversity, caring for others and the environment, and ethical values. There is a lot of support for students at every capability, with small class sizes, wonderful teachers and teaching the importance of helping peers. The high school requires more that just good grades to graduate. The requirements are designed so that our children are ready for the next step in their young adult lives; be it college or a trade school. SSCPS won't just give them a diploma and wish them luck, they give them skills for future success. In high school my oldest went to our local school for sports, 3 months in he came to me saying he wasn't being challenged enough academically. He was in the highest level classes our local school offered! Needless to say my oldest, and his siblings, will be graduates of SSCPS.

My son just finished his kindergarten year at SSCPS, and he had a FABULOUS start to his eductation! The teachers are incredibly innovative and dedicated, the administration is very hands-on, and the atmosphere is so welcoming and accepting. I love how diverse the school population is also, and that is the perspective my son is growing up with. There are so many things that can't be measured with test scores. SSCPS is wonderful!

SSCPS has taught my child to love reading ... something the former school taught my child to strongly dislike.

I have two children at this school one who started in kindergarten and one who started in forth grade. My forth grader has been to Catholic school, public school and now South Shore Charter School and he is learning the most at South Shore Charter Public School. My kindergarten was even reading books by the end of the year. It is an incredible school with small classes. They give every child a chance to thrive while they are there.

The classes are small and there's usually a teacher and a teacher's aide, so when you need help with something you can get it quickly. And the town meetings and student government are great--they really make the students' voices matter.

The only fault I can see is the driveway drop off/pickup situation before/after school. This is due to demographics and has nothing to do with the education, teachers or general atmosphere. I give this school and it's teachers an A+.

I went to this school from kindergarten to 7th grade. I loved it. Every class gives a hands-on experience that most school do not give. The ability to interact so closley with the whole student body and faculty and staff gives a very good feel of real life. This school is such a great school.

Both our kids are new to the school and claim to love it. They felt welcomed and comfortable with teachers, staff and students from the first moment of orientation. We noticed a positive change in confidence, self-esteem and a desire to succeed in both the kids. They feel comfortable being themselves and not afraid to engage in class discussions. There is a great foundation of student honesty and personal integrity at this school. We find the general atmosphere to be very positive, supportive and encouraging.

I went to this school for 5 years from first to 5th grade when I lived there, I know moved to California, but I believe it was an awsome school! There are so many activities and I personaly learned a lot while I was there about a lot of things not counting academics. I learned education but also life skills and such. We had a lot of freedom but rules also applied.

Unfortunately, this school places more emphasis on a student's 'freedom of expression' than it does on academics. While I believe this is an important element, I do not believe education should take a back seat to it. Parent involvement is extraodinary, sometimes to a fault. There are sometimes so many parents with so many (differing) opinions that the bickering and in-fighting can get outrageous. Mornings and afternoons can be chaos with so many parents coming and going at will that I feared that anyone could get into the school. For the right child, this school could be a wonderful place, but it is not for everyone.
