    I went to Belle Morris as a child and as such had high expectations. Unfortunately they weren't met. My first child's kindergarten year was perfunctory at best. He was reading writing and comprehending at a 3rd grade level but all I heard about his progress was the negative. My second child's kindergarten year was awful. The teacher seemed disinterested in teaching. She seemed to dislike children. The principal is nice but seems overwhelmed. There is a strict uniform policy and I found that inhibiting. Polo style shirts are more expensive than t-shirts and I don't understand the point behind it. Especially when the other schools in the area don't employee a uniform policy. The only positive I found was my first son's first grade teacher. I'll say Mr. Himmel was incredible! He personally interacted with each child on their level and taught each of them on an individual basis according to their specific needs. I thought he was wonderful. However I'm moving before the start of the next school year to a better school district. I hope to give my children a chance at a better education than I feel they would receive at this school.

    We're moving to Raeford NC this week so my son will no longer be at South Clinton. We will miss it so much because of the excellent teachers and the wonderful principal. I've looked at the school's websites in our new location and none of them look half as wonderful as South Clinton. I doubt we'll find another school that makes us as happy as they do. We'll certainly miss it!

    This is our first year at South Clinton Elementary we moved from Knox County and we have been very pleased with the Teachers and the Principal. My son loves everyone at the school. It makes you feel good when you see your child ready and happy to being to school. I thank all the staff for the hard work they do. I am glad to be apart of a school that really cares about the students.

    South Clinton is a wonderful school with a brilliant staff. I couldn't think of a better school for my children. Due to re-zoning issues we are willing to pay tuition fees next year to keep our kids at this school.

    My husband and I couldn't ask for a better school to send our children to. We have one that will be going to the middle school starting in August and we just hope he has teachers and a principal that care about him and his friends as much as you all do. I am so glad we live in a community with a school like this.
