South School Ratings & Reviews

The school keeps parents up to date as to what is happening in the school and where our child is academically.

I agree with a lot of the comments. High rankings are because so much of the 2nd half of the year is devoted to prep for std testing & they know how to work it. To compare to private schools is ridiculous. There is definite backlash if you complain, including segregating the child who is bullied rather than admit to it, and cover up/cover up/cover up. Also common knowledge that a teacher who has been there a while even bullied the victim whose parents complained. Also PTC is very cliquey. Fund raising is advertised with givers duly noted. And many teachers do openly expect high-priced gifts.

My son and daughter now attend South school. I am very pleased and have no complaints. My son, who is now in 2nd grade, has had difficulty in school since kindergarten. All his teachers and staff have gone the extra mile to help him succeed. I know if he had gone to school else where he would be having an even harder time than he did. They do have a lot of fund raisers, but no one is ever singled out for not giving. I am never able to participate in all the fund raisers, and not once did I get put on a guilt trip. If your child goes to school here you are expected to work with them at home, the school cannot teach them everything. Overall it is a great school and I am thankful my kids are able to attend.

The worst experience my child has ever had and it took years for her to have confidence in herself and trust teachers once again. They treat the children as if they all should be at the same level. They do not practice positive enforcement even if they act like they do. The education received is not that great, math is not that great of a focus. They just want to get high scores on the public exams so their school is ranked high to make the town happy not the students. This school just wants to keep up with the jones and they do not REALLY care about your child. If you say anything to the teacher or principle they will point fingers at you the parent and the child not their staff, they will segregate your child from the rest of the group too. ALSO IF YOU ARE LATE BRINGING YOUR KID TO SCHOOL THEY WILL THREATEN YOU WITH CALLING CHILD SERVICES. This is all true. Go to EAST school if you can, or move to Weston they truly have wonderful schools.

All of my children attended South School. My youngest is now in fourth grade. South School prepared them for middle school, high school and college! They enjoyed many activities. The principal, teachers and staff are excellent. Like any school community, you get out of it what you put in.
