We're military and have been to 10 different schools with all three of my children, so upon moving to this area, we were reluctant with how the schools would be with my kids being new to a non-military area. Currently, I have two kids at SL Middle School and another attending next year. In all honesty, I LOVE the staff and the academics there. They welcomed us, gave us all a tour, introduced us to people too and walked us through the curriculum and activities. I struggled to get my son on a IEP at previous schools and SLMS worked and tested him and found that he indeed needed an IEP. They were thorough and helpful and the teachers work with him as if he were one of their own children! The Principal and the Vice Principal know the kids by name and they are always standing outside waiting for the kids to arrive or leave, they love talking with the parents, and the staff in the front office of the middle school are all so HAPPY! The activities and academics are brilliant! They really encourage the kids and the parents. Southern Lehigh Intermediate School is horrible, but don't let that school be a reflection of judgement on SLSD itself because the Middle School is AMAZING!

My three children attended Southern Lehigh Schools. I had two children with an IEP. In middle school I didn't feel there was the support and encouragement they needed. As is fairly common children, especially at this age, don't want to be labeled as "different" and may act as though they don't want or need help.Teachers should see through that attitude. And some teachers don't want to go the extra mile. High school was a train wreck. Maybe I should have pushed the school more, but that was only half of it.

Some teachers are great and others are terrible but there's more good than bad. Almost the entire school makes honor roll. But a few kids fail. But only a very small number.

This school is a very good institution for learning. The environment created by most teachers is positive, but there are a few that challenge the students beyond their potential as it would be as a college graduate. The activities provided by the school are enriching, and the students are mostly kind and helpful. Athletics are wonderful, with this year's football team going 9-1 and the field hockey team presiding over their field. The concert band boasts award-winning trombone and trumpet sections. As for academics, the students are provided with a wholesome learning experience by their eighth grade year, learning about the Greeks, modern economy, the environment, and Colonial America. This school is a wonderful place to be a part of, and I hope it continues to thrive.

I think that this school is an 'ok' school. Some of the teachers are really great and they make the subject they are teaching a challenging and fun experience. On the other hand, there are teachers who don't even care of we become smart or not and barely teach us anything. Additionally, the school's dressing code is a little too lenient. Athletics/music is all right, not perfect, but not bad.
