    South MIddle is a great school. The principal has good handle of the students is very visible and approachable to the parents and students. The teachers have advanced degrees either Masters or PhD and are involved in the school life. The South is not a huge school but is big enough for the students who come from much smaller elementary schools and it makes the transition to Braintree High much easier. Kudos to teachers and the principal of South MIddle for a job well done!

    This is my fourth year with a child at South. Teachers are very involved with students and responsive to parental concerns. Lots of opportunities for creative learning and community/team building. Very happy with the education being received!

    The teachers give you alot of attention and the MCAS scores are higher than average. 8th Graders go on a trip to Quebec if they choose French as their language elective. South is a great school.

    Wow no reviews for South Middle. It's a great school with great teachers. They have wonderful activities. 6th graders just went on a Natures Classroom Camp not many schools take time to care. I went there myself about 20 years ago from a Catholic school and I am happy to send my children there
