    "South School is a public school that continues to score below average on state exams. The school continues to blame its failures on the economy and no child will benefit from attending this school. If you can afford it, stay away from this school. The State Test Scores are available to anyone. Look for other public schools if you can't afford private school. South School can improve its test scores if they would give a rigorous curriculum instead of trying to make school "fun." I have noticed some teachers buying school supplies with their own money, which shows some interest in student education. The only reason I have kept my child at South School for over a year is to interact with other children his age. I constantly teach my child at home so he can stay ahead of most people. He goes to South School to play and interact with other children. Don't believe the fake high ratings on here. If you dare take your child to South School, expect rude service from the office, low performing teachers, and low state test scores. I went to an economically depressed school system and we had students graduate from Harvard, Yale, MIT, etc. I don't accept their excuses and neither should you."

    "Honestly, my children come to me everyday complaining about their school that they were being teased and bullied. Well maybe the security guard they put newly they changed them and now they work at Yeager not South taking over our kids anymore no one could know what will happen my daughter was in this class it had these 2 kids fighting in the bathroom and the other one was bleeding. Truly I don't recommend this school to anyone. My son and daughter have gone to that school my son didn't suffer as much because he went to Clearview when he was in K - 1st grade . Then he went to Hart school in 2nd grade. We didn't live that far away but then we decided to move to a house the house was close to this school the neighborhood is poorly also the kids in the school are not goodly disciplined I don't know I ask her everyday house she went through the whole school year. She went when she was in K - 5th Grade. We're moving to Tennessee already because over there the schools are more economical . Yes, they might have won the basketball game and everything but still this school is not the best. Take it for me, you want a school ? Go to AJK or Greenbay you won't find a school better as that ."

    "This School was one that i had to send my daughter to because we are military and it was the closest location. I figured what harm could it do its only kindergarten boy was i WRONG! Stay away from this school at all costs this school was bad for my daughter, they were not organized, teaching a preschool curriculum in kindergarten, the principal was rude and so was the secretary. My daughters things were constantly getting stolen and they were complaining that my child was violent and out of control but it was the lack of supervision and other kids bullying her. If you have a kindergartener in this area i reccomend howard a yeager!"

    "I love this school! I read these comments before I enrolled my son into a private school in Libertyville. I pulled my son out after the teacher kept suggesting that I take my son in some kind of therapy. I then enrolled him into this school, and all he talks about is his teachers, what he's learned, and etc. I am very happy with this school despite of the negative feedbacks it has gotten. True enough, this district is struggling, but the school is doing what it can. Since my child has come to this school, he has learned all his numbers, letters, and he even reads now! That is within 2 months. My son used to have a phobia with numbers!"
