    This school has gone downhill since my first child started here in 2005. The PTA is not very active. There were few schoolwide activities this year. The teachers are caring and top notch. I would like to see more activities for the children.

    Southwood is a unique school built on a constructivist approach to education allowing students the opportunity to 'own' their education by being actively involved rather than listening to lectures. It integrates all aspects of education with child development to reach every learner!

    Great School - good caring teachers and students. Doesn't have any extra activities if your child is not into music. We like it here but would like to see the test scores improve compared to our neighbor schools.
