I attended this school as a child and my two sons have now also walked the halls. This is not the newest school in the Neosho R5 system, but there is definitely a sense of family there. If you are looking for a wholesome staff with a great principal, this is the place.

My grandson attends South Elementary in Neosho. They recently had a Grandparent's Day that I was able to attend. I found the teachers all very courteous and helpful. I appreciated the opportunity to be at the school for him. Thank you

My grandson has been in neosho public school and has not learned nothing. Had to put him in private school and is doing great. It seems the teachers are there just to get a paycheck. Children have to learn the three R's. All they wanted to do is have him put on medication.

We love this school. Our only child, a daughter, was starting Kindergarten. I agonized all summer about whether to send her to private or public school. I researched all the schools in this area, considering moving if necessary. I found South to have high test scores then upon a visit to the school I met the principal & teacher and they were very friendly and helpful. My daughter loves school, South has a very good PTO and parental involvement in all aspects of childs school experience is encouraged and welcomed.

The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
