South School cares about the students. The staff works hard to make sure each child succeeds. I feel welcome and my children love going to school.

This is my daughter's first year at South School and she really enjoys it. Her teacher pays attention to each student as an individual and helps them in their own special ways. The school has a great system of doing things.

The teachers at north school are so involved with the students as well as the parents. The principal is great, she answers any questions parents have with ease and explanations.

There is a lot of parent involvement. The teachers are very helpful. The principal is very much involved in all of the activities that go on in the school. The principle takes time to greet each child by their name.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
