this school does not care about the students well being. if your child is being bullied they do not discipline the child who does the bullying. they do alot of talking but nothing ever gets done. thier cafeteria food is not good and sometimes contains mold. the students have noticed mice and bugs roaming around. the administration of this school should be ashamed and embarrassed for not taking care of the students safety and well being as much as they should. this school needs people who actually do something to show they care instead of saying they do but in the end not doing anything at all. so much bullying goes on in this school and it's extremely sad!! if no action is being taken then nothing will ever change.
South is a great school ,but when i mean great I mean for social actives like talking making new friends. As for teachers they really jump on your back to only push you forward, but for some students not in the right way. Now the discipline is moderate there are a lot of student who get in trouble some may learn never to do it again or don't learn there lesson ,only because they want to show off to there friends, but all in all I love of my teachers and they really help me.
After watching the 7th grade year pass by and the discipline problems plus some issues with teachers who should no longer be teaching I am looking to move my daughter to another school even if it means moving out of state, too much chaos and disorganization on the administration and the teachers. It is not a good environment for learning. Morgantown needs another middle school this one is too over crowded to be effective break it in half and get good quality teachers like Suncrest, all middle schools should be created equal. in Monongalia county. How are they to compete against those from Suncrest when they reach MHS? At this rate it doesn't look good if they continue at this pace.
I went to south for 3 years and it is the best middle school around. The teachers actually care for the students. There is more then just 1 type of social class. You dont get ridiculed for being in a social class. It is hands down the best school around.
There are some great kids and teachers at south but unfortunatley they are lost in the chaos at South Middle where 80% Of the day is devoted to Discipline. Morgantown kids deserve better!
