My daughter switched to South Memorial a couple years ago from a Catholic school in Peabody, because we had bought a new home fairly close to South...I was hesitant at first and was not sure we were going to love the school but I have to say it's turned out great and ml our daughter is thriving and has made some wonderful friendships. The teachers are great, the kids have homework every night but it's not overwhelming and overall it's a very welcoming school!
My daughter transfered to the South School from another school in Peabody. She finds the children to be much more friendly and welcoming. We have noticed her coming home happier and more energetic since the change. We are Very happy!
