It absolutely blows my mind that this school only received a rating of 3! My daughter attends school here, and I have nothing but positive things to say about it. The building gives an overall warm, cozy, and nostalgic vibe. It's clean, and adorably decorated. It feels safe inside, and the school's values are to be " Safe, Respectful, and Responsible". The secretary, principal, teachers, and all additional staff are dedicated, amazing, and caring. The PTA is fabulous, and they hold many events throughout the year. I feel as though my daughter is receiving a top-notch elementary education. I cannot say enough good things about Southwood Elementary School!

I know that one of the counselors there is wonderful with the children. Several of our children at our church attend this school And this school opens itself to the community to some adult exercise classes offered by the Raytown School Adult Program.

I feel like my childrens' best interests are at hand. The teachers really do their part to inform me of any changes in my childs learning/behavior, for the negative or the positive! The staff are very very nice! I currently have 3 children enrolled at Southwood Elementary.
