Great staff,Great teachers, The BEST Teaching comes from this school!
My 3 kids are going to Lower South now and enjoy attending. The staff is very accomodating and they email me back right away with concerns! The principle and teachers seem very open to listening to us. The only major change I would suggest is to improve the cafeteria food.
Regardless of how the teachers treat your children, or parents, they are always supported by the Principal. The teachers can 'do no wrong' even when they are less than fair or open to possibly making a mistake. We have had teachers who play favorites, resist parental views, and view any parental concerns regarding their teaching methods for their child as a personal attack on their teaching skills. How can you work with a teacher who only wants to work with parents who tell them how great they are? Any concerns or questions to their teaching methods are met with excuses or negative comments about your child, and then a conference where you are told what a problem your child is instead finding a way to give on BOTH sides. It is always about what the parents or child does wrong - never the teachers involvement or lack there of.
School only care to have 'cool' kids and not normal students. Beware,good kids become stupid there and mean!!!! School allows backtalk and teasing
This school is just like a Camden , NJ Public school unsafe. This school is like animal house at lunch. Your dog wouldn't be safe here. Wouldn't send mine. This school is your worst nightmare. It lacks academically as well, and has kids with serious behavioral problems, that shouldn't be there present and they rule.
My daughter goes to Lower South. She is in first grade and both her first grade teacher and her kindergarten teachers were excellant. I do think the school could be safer. The doors are locked and you have to be buzzed in but they have never asked me who I was or what I was there for they just let me right in.
The teachers are Great! The school is not safe, absence of order and discipline , Chaos is prevalent.
We love Lower South. My children have received the best education from the wonderful, caring staff. It's a great place!
I hace just found out that Lower Southampton Elementry School is ranked at 39 of 92 elementry schools in Bucks County. What I don't understand is why the PTA worries about bake sale and not test scores?
This is one of the worst run schools I have encountered. The instruction is lacking. The only bright spot is the art teacher,some of the bus drivers, and the speech teacher.
