I rate this school five stars. It is a proven academic school that graduates students that are ready to take on the chalenge to succeed. My son is a graduate of Southloop and when he graduated from Camino Real Middle school he did not go to a high school, he whent to Valle Verde College so at fourteen he is taking college courses. I atribute this to the foundation that southloop rovided from there he built a tower.
