    "Southside is an excellent school. We moved here after being in another Sarasota school previously. My daughter has done 4th and 5th grade here. The arts program is second to none and the wealth of opportunities for student and family involvement are plentiful. The school is well run and it is evident that students are at the center of all decisions."

    "Southside is a great school. My three kids are in the lower grades. The more involved the parent then the more engaged the student and responsive the teacher. The parents are supportive, friendly and as involved as they can be with busy lives. I am an involved parent, the teachers care and my kids thrive. What else do you want for first grade?"

    "Southside rests on its historical reputation. There has been a change in leadership 4 years ago and after having issues with the teacher, nothing has been done to correct it. The school has a very negative vibe, and the women are being allowed to live out their aggressions on moms. Instead of addressing bad grades and finding remedies, they send out emails about less important rules to be followed during teaching time. Shows their goal at heart is NOT advancing kids but just living out their personal issues."

    "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."
