    "There is so much potential here but the problems are bringing it down. Bullying has been a large problem that is not being addressed by the Principal. In the last two weeks, my son has been spit on, choked, punched in the head, pelted with sports balls and dragged to the ground during recesses. When I brought it up to his teacher, she said it's a big problem and actually gave me names of kids my child should avoid. The Principal came in to a parents meeting last month, showed next year's budget, not saying how she came to the figures but two teachers would have to be released. The next day, we receive a memo from her indicating that the parent committee recommended that two teachers be let go, essentially blaming others. On the other side, I have found my son's teachers to be extremely helpful and caring about his needs and the HGT program is strong, although the Principal has indicated that program may change. There is a leadership void at this school that needs to be addressed. Also, there is almost a class structure there whereas if you are not at an income level that matches the neighborhood surrounding the school, you are a lesser citizen. Currently researching other schools."

    "Very disappointed in southmoor. The principal is hardly visible, teachers don't feel valued or supported by the principal, and bullying is a huge problem. The overall atmosphere here is disconnected with a huge lack of communication on all ends. The overall atmosphere was so unhealthy that I pulled my child from the school. They need a complete change in every direction starting from the principal on down!"

    "Southmoor Elementary is a jewel in the DPS. This school is rich in teachers, has an excellent parent group and is located in a supportive community environment. My children have thrived and they continues to grow. The school communicates with parents, hosts all kinds of events to bring the community together and meets the needs of the kids. Southmoor is a great school."

    "This is our 5th year at Southmoor. We have had an amazing experience-excellent teachers, strong parent involvement, wonderful cultural diversity, and a warm and caring staff and community. Our kids love school and are thriving academically. All schools face challenges and Southmoor is addressing those. Steps have been taken to alleviate class sizes. Test scores are climbing. The sense of positive energy and momentum is palpable. We are excited for another great year!"

    "We are so excited for a brand new school year at Southmoor! This school brings together the best of the best - teachers, kids and community. My child has loved the experience of being a Southmoor student, and as an involved parent, I have witnessed first hand how the collaboration of strong teachers, willing parent volunteers and good leadership can help a school be the best it can be. No school is perfect, and sadly, the districts are not either, but at Southmoor, everyone is committed to working together to overcome challenges and raise the school's level of academic performance, without losing focus on helping our kids grow as individuals. And it is working! Southmoor is growing and succeeding. We are so happy Southmoor is our neighborhood school...we walk to school each day with smiles on our faces!"
