My oldest is an accelerated learner, he had the opportunity to join the KOG program but as a family and along with his teachers we decided to keep him at Southgate. His teachers have always done an AMAZING job to see that he is challenged. My middle child struggles with her schooling and her teachers have always made sure she gets the extra help she needs
Couldn't be happier with my kids attending Southgate! My oldest went there from kindergarten to 5th and is now in middle school, my middle child currently is in the 3rd grade and has been there since kindergarten as well, my youngest is not school age yet but she will surely be a Dragon!!
Southgate Elementary takes education very seriously. Each classroom is engaged and every child thrives in the environment at this school!! Great P.T.G. (Parent Teacher Group) and I cannot say enough about this place! The compassion and understanding of every child's individuality and the positive attitudes of the staff is above standards. The Principal and the Teachers always have smiles on their faces. They are doing what they love, and it shows in my child!
My daughter and son attended this school 3 years ago and it was amazing. They got a new principle and it's not quite as good. One teacher my daughter had in 2nd and 3rd grade is still there and my now 2nd grader has her as well. I wasn't impressed with her then and am really not impressed now. I'm thinking of removing my child from this school any ideas?
My son is in kindergarten at Southgate Elementary and I have been very happy with the support and caring given by the staff and Parents. Though the kindergarten curriculum leaves a little to be desired considering we came from a Montessori school. The Teacher seems overwhelmed and appears to need more support to run the different centers in the classroom. Ultimately it is a wonderful school as far as public schools go.
My daughter has attended this school for 2 years now & we are very happy with the teachers she has had & the activities that the school offers. I do wish that they had a full time art teacher though. The music department is wonderful.
We have had 2 children in southgate from K to 5th, and we could not be happier. They have a personal way of knowing each child and have made such a difference in their lives. We moved here from Orange County CA, for the improvement in the school system, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The children here are far beyond other children in their skills. The PTA has many great activities, their teachers are all excellent and work together well. Thanks for a great elementry school! Mr Fulfs is wonderful and knows each child by name.
