Southside teachers work very hard for their students to give them the best education possible.

Southside Elementary is a large school but one with a great deal of warmth. We strive everyday to provide a quality education for all children. With at least 4 classes in each grade level, we are able to draw the experiences and ideas from many sources when we create a curricular program to meet the new common core standards. Our goal is for all children to work to the best of their ability. We do not accept any excuses and this sometimes upsets parents/guardians because we expect all students to follow the rules of the school and to complete the course load that is required. We are fortunate to have at least one CT teacher in each grade level to work with struggling learns but we don't use this to lower our expections for the children. We are very proud of the work we do, however, our proudest moments are when we witness the success and growth of the children.

Typical City School regardless of the staff trying to 'build bridges with no supplies'. Buffalo's education system needs a 100% revamp. Mandatory Summer school is not the answer.

This school is terrible. They don't provide any tutoring or afterschool programs for children in grades 1st-5th. They also don't support the parents when it comes to finding the best possible school for your child.

This school has a lot to offer in terms of modern facilities and extra-curricular activities. However it is not academically up to par.

I believe this in one of the best schools in the area and that the sports teams are excellent. most of the teachers are awsome and that the principal is doing a wonderful job!
