Southern Middle School Ratings & Reviews
My experience with this school has been a frustrating one.Trying to get help for my son has been a series of hoops to jump through. If you call the school with a question everyone is always in a meeting and cannot answer your question. As a parent I was treated poorly by certain staff members. The school is more concerned with checking off their boxes on forms than caring about a concerned mother or the well being of her son. I was treated me poorly and I felt totally disrespected by certain staff members.
My daughter just finished 6th grade at Southern and had a good year. The first few months were bumpy because she didn't know many kids, but she got involved and that helped tremendously. She found the teachers to be caring and and as parents we feel they were not only competent but helpful. The principal does a good job communicating through monthly newsletters and he seems very involved with keeping things running smoothly. As with any middle school, there are ups & downs as kids at this age are going through a lot of transitions, but SMS has been a good experience so far. The volunteer base doesn't seem as strong as elementary school years, but no doubt that is due to most famlies having 2 working parents.
Great school! My daughter has excelled tremedously here. The teachers and staff do care. The principle is wonderful. GO EAGLES
Absolutely disgusted with this school. If the teachers are not good, they are horrendous. I have been more than unhappy with this school for years. Administration has absolutely no idea what they are doing. Poor communication between teachers and students, and a poor learning environment. Kids who don't care distract others who do care. Cliques are everywhere - you are always being judged just walking through the hallway. I truly feel bad for whoever has to go to this school in the future. Teachers and admins make false accusations on a daily basis. Staff also makes decisions that make you wonder if they have any common sense, and students too. There are fights on a regular basis, whether it's verbal or physical. Needless to say, no child of mine will ever consider going to this school. They'd be better off tearing the whole thing down and splitting the kids up between CMS and MCMS. Mostly all students are embarrassed to be going here (including myself), and have no school spirit whatsoever. I shall finish saying I have not gotten the middle school level education that I wished, and that I most certainly will not miss this school at any point in my life. Never send your kids here!!
Positive reinforcement from teachers and great communication from principal regarding happenings at school. Very supportive environment for students.
