    "Objectively speaking there are many stellar qualities about this school, however, there are some huge drawbacks to this school that are not spoken about. First, you cannot get a better arts program without paying tuition at a private institute. They offer dance, drama, yoga, and have a world class garden the kids learn in. BUT the major drawback to this school is the social-class environment. For many "working class" families this school can feel unwelcoming. This school places a lot of focus on donations and contributions and it is felt by many that if you cannot participate in those contributions your child does not receive the "perks" or "highly requested teachers" that those families do. We have found in all our years here (and having lived other places) the social environment is very "cliquey" and our children do pay the price socially for us not being able to pay financially into their silent auctions & pricey masquerades. Overall, the school facilities are world class and teacher quality is superb but I think the social environment can feel discriminatory to many students and families below a 6-figure income."

    "My children just finished thier first year of school after moving from the northest. I continue to extremely impressed with not only the quality of the teachers, but the personal interest from the teachers and administrators. Teachers picked up on my childrens concerns when one parent was in the hospital, and another teacher spent many hours after school on a regular basis helping students. We came away with the feeling that the educational experience at Southside is truely about the students. Sadly this was not always the case in my childrens previous experience."

    "I've being teaching at Southside since 1987 and I love every part of it. The staff is superb from the administration to the custodians. Every adult involved with this school makes it what it is today. What I like most is that most teachers and staff knows the parents and families of most of the students because we work with all students whether they are assigned to our class or not. We collaborate together to come up with academic plans to meet the needs of each student. The parents are superb. They are active and supportive. We have one of the best Parent Groups and Community groups anywhere. Southside is a Community School and we all work together investing in our future:: the students."

    "This is a small, historic and charming public school near downtown Sarasota. The school just underwent a complete renovation which included a huge addition. The grounds are cloistered and safe. The principal is hands-on and the teachers dedicated. Parents are very involved and welcome. I can't imagine why anyone would pay for a private school if they live in the Southside Elementary School District!"
