This school's administration is just horrible. They do not listen, they treat your child as a number, they bully and patronize. If you can avoid this school at all, please do so. I feel horrible for the kids that are stuck at this school without parents who care. And, 15 minutes of recess for kindergartners for the ENTIRE DAY?! Ridiculous.
My Son attends South High Mount Elementary. The only problem my wife and I have had came up more than once.. My son like other children have received sad faces.. My sons teacher will tend , to explain, why the sad face was given in front of all the other children at class room door while picking up children at the end of the day. We don't feel as parents that this should be addressed in this manner. The teacher should address the parent in the class room with child after class or set up some kind of meeting. I have spoken to the principal about this and she did say she would speak to the teacher several month back. I don't understand why this keeps occurring.
Great programs offered by SHM(FWAS). Speach therapy was also help for the oldest of my 2 kids. Both have attend SHM since Pre-K. Great caring teachers.
My two son's have attended South Hi Mount for going on three years. I as parent overall have enjoyed their experience with this school. The teachers are very involved with the well being of each student and their grades. I do wish at times parents at this school would be more involved but I do understand that a lot of parents work which consumes much of their time and that they can't help. Everyone is friendly at this school which is what I like most about the parents and the teachers. I would recommend this school to my friends and family.
My daughter & I are very pleased with SHM. This is her 2nd year there and so far pre-k & kinder have been a blast. My husband & I have no worries about her getting a good education. The only concern we have is a change that was made of combining 1st grade & kindergarden together. Other than that, SHM is a great school.
Very happy with the education my daughter received at SHM. Would recommend that parents play an active roll in the school to ensure their children receive the great education they deserve.
Hello my name is jenny and i do have two girls that do attend south hi mount and will til the 5th grade i think this ia a well known school and very safe our teachers and principal are always on top of thing that our children surroundings i do know that our teacher will let us know that we as parents need to do to approve our kids i have enjoyed this school and the communities that surrounds this school i just hope that we can approve of our children to wear uniforms in the incoming school year.....
We LOVE South Hi Mount, and are bothered that it doesn't get the same publicity as some of the other area elementary schools. We gave SHM a try and have been 100% pleased with the results. Amazing staff and teachers and a gifted-and-talented curriculum that is on par (or better) than any other FWISD school. G/T doesn't officially start until 1st in FWISD, but SHM identified our son and created a curriculum for him in K without any real prompting from us - talk about proactive! Nurturing environment, great PTA and extracurriculars/enrichment, too. Can't say enough!
South Hi Mount is a wonderful school. The Principal puts everything aside for the parents concerns and is very caring toward the children. The teachers are all very friendly and outgoing that I have met and just like the Principal are very caring toward the children. I think the overall school rating is excellent. I have been in other schools where no one seemed to care about the children or what their problems were. Parents seemed to be involved in their childrens lives and want whats best for them. The academics are outstanding and they offer extracurricular activites as well. All in all it is a wonderful blessed school.
The leadership at this school is awesome. The teachers are great. The school just needs more parents invloved. That is its biggest challenge.
We had a mixed experience with the school; however, the great thing was that the principal got involved immediately and resolved the issue with professionalism and empathy. There is one thing I did not agree on, and it is the no tolerance rule when it comes to applying discipline; which is not limited to this school. I learned first hand that this rule instead of helping a child, limits his ability to learn real self-control. It hinders a child by making him/her feel unimportant. I am not advocating not disciplining a child, but consider all the circumstances before passing judgment. Some forms of discipline are actually counterproductive if all the events leading up to the incidents are not considered. If I had not been an involved parent, my child would have easily been labeled a problem. Teachers need to work with each child's personality! Academics are excellent and well rounded.
I would like to thank SHM for all they to for the kids there. My son was doing awfull at his last school; crying everyday about not wanting to go. Everything changed this year with our enrollment here. The teachers and staff really care about the students academically as well as emotionally and socially. Thank you once again.
We have had three daughters attend SHM and they are all doing well academically and socially. Thank you to the staff at SHM. Go Colts.
My daughter loves this school. She was on the honor roll last year. The staff of this school are very nice.
