I hate this school. My son got bullied for almost a year and the principal did absolutely nothing. Everyone ignored it. No one cares.

I agree with the comment posted in May 2011. South Brook became a 'school choice' school in the 2010-2011 school year because it performed so well on the PSSA. As a result, the school is now over crowded and bullies reign. I pulled my child out because the violence was so bad and the leadership was ignoring it. It's a shame, because it used to be a really good school. Until the district does something about the delinquents that are running the schools, the district will continue to decline.

The school may have been good at one time but now fights are common even in class room and bullying is tolerated by teachers. There is no accountablity and the troubled kids that start the fights are rewarded more than punished for there behaviour. Send your kids to private school if want an education and values.

I attend South Brook middle school and I think that it is a wonderful school for any child going into 6 - 8 grade to go to. I look forward to going back this year and learning along with my fellow classmates. I believe the teachers are as strict as needed and yet can still let the kids have a little fun every now and then so they don't get bored or tired and so they keep paying attention and don't loose interest. They keep things new and exciting so the kids want to learn!

I go to South Brook, & I think that it is a fine place for a child to have a good education. They are a little strict, but I bet most schools are. I love the teachers, but some students act up to much. Other than that, this is a great school for kids to go to for a good education!

I think this school has went down hill in the past couple of years. Mrs. Rickert needs to take back her school. You are so quick to put kids through the system rather than work with them. You also don't have teachers that know how to deal with kids that have special needs. Take the school back off of Mr. May.
