    my little sisters go to this school and I have to say that it's alright but I was there earlier bringing my sister that was in Kindergarten her homework and my other sister (who is in pre kindergarten) wanted to go home because 'Teacher's being mean' my older little sister likes it. I did however have a problem with one of the teacher's screaming at a boy who was probably around my sisters' age. They've only been going for a few days though and we can't afford prive school. So this school will get a three out of five.

    I love Southside Elem. The staff are just the sweetest and they care abou the education of the kids. I have a son that still attends there and he loves it. He constantly brags on the lunchroom staff and compliments the food. I believe a child's education is not based on them the teachers or the staff but the biggest part is what they get from there parents.
