    "Like any school, experience varies according to the quality of teaching. Southside attracts top-notch teachers. My 4th grader has had excellent teachers all the way through with the exception of one bad apple, who wasn't terrible, but just fairly lazy and unwilling to differentiate her teaching. The school admin promptly offered us the opportunity to switch to an excellent teacher and we've had nothing but excellent teachers since. Southside offers an idyllic and charming environment.. I imagine our son will have very fond memories of the charming old building, lovely open and vegetated courtyard, open playground and fabulous school garden which they pass multiple times/day to/from classes. Southside is in a high-income area of town. With the wealth, comes a good bit of attention to status, both material and academic. By academic, I refer to the ability and willingness of many Southside families to essentially purchase a "gifted" academic track for their children. There is a pervasive misconception at Southside that "gifted-certified" equates with "better teacher." The downside to this is that for those students who truly need more academic challenge, they are placed with less advanced students in gifted classes and the teachers must accommodate their needs, thereby preventing any truly advanced or accelerated curriculum from being offered. Fortunately, Common Core is requiring more advanced grade-level curriculum, increasing the challenge level for everyone. Southside has a lot of well-to-do stay-at-home mom's ever present at school, in the PTO, raising funds and organizing fabulous events and programs, such as dance, drama and a truly wonderful school garden. While there is very little ethnic or economic diversity at Southside (a big downside), the school offers an almost nostalgic setting and energy, just a warm and nurturing primary school experience with highly motivated teachers to hopefully send them off to middle school as inspired learners."

    "The only reason I'm stopping at "It's great" is that there are far too many teachers for me to be able to rate them all. I can say that my son's teachers have been excellent. They consistently motivate and inspire him and he consistently loves his teachers."
