My daughter is in her second semester of 6th grade. I had to leave a review because these comments left here could not be farther than the truth! We are loving the teachers and staff here! Technology use is great, lunches are good, students are happy, friendly and helpful! They go above and beyond to make sure all kids find their niche and encourage them to be successful academically and ethically with monthly award breakfasts highlighting achievements in both. They are trying to teach the kids responsibility and to take personal responsibility and because of such will not allow excuses, so kids will have consequences as they go through this process. However, that's part of getting them ready for high school! :)
South Valley Middle School is more concerned with processes than the kids themselves. The staff targets students, dishes out excessive punishment and has no regard for the emotional well being of their students. There are some very rude teachers and it seems like the leadership at the school all have attitudes.
This school is awful. The principals and most staff members do not seem to care for the students and the students do not respect the teachers whatsoever. From what I have heard the lunches are terrible, but that should not come as a surprise because it is a school lunch. I am glad my child will be leaving next year to go to Liberty North High School
I attending SVMS right now and I do not like it very much. They do not inforce the rules very well the kids can get away with anything. The kids are very disrespectful to authority figures and they cuss all the time. The lunches are okay but are not the best and are very expensive for school lunches. There is no time to socailize exept at lunch. The homework load is okay, but you have to take a lot of classes. The school day starts at 7:25 so you have to get up at 5 or 6pm which is ridiculus. The teachers are pretty nice except for a couple here and there. The quality of the school is very nice. The buses are way too crowded and they leave too early. You have to run from to get a seat especially if you have to get an instrument.
