    I have got to say that I have enjoyed my kids being at South Elementary. There are some of the the best teachers there that are more than willing to challenge and work with you and your child through anything. It is such a relief as a parent to know that when I leave my child in the morning I know that most of the teachers are there because they love helping the children learn and not just for the pay check. I have really enjoyed the children at South but I have got to say that I am very worried about sending my children to the middle school and high school in Caswell as I have heard nothing positive about it. So this something to consider if moving to Caswell County.
