    Academic programs are very goood. Last year they had an after school program for kids in kindergarter who needed learn to read more my daugther was one of them and she learned a lot. the teacher was great with the children. It woulb be better if they had a sport program for the kindergarten class.

    I had my four children in Southern Heights from 1968 until 1985. I have had a daycare at this address for the past 34 years and most my daycare children have gone to this school and now the first of my five grandchilden is in the third grade. Except for a few years in the early 70's I have had nothing but the highest regard for the school. The principals have been great and the teaching staff excellent. I consider it one of the best schools in the Highline district and consider it a privilege to be close to it and to have spent numerous years involved in the school when my children were small. I think smaller schools are the best for a more family involved community. Keep up the good work Southern Heights.
