Southern Middle School Reviews

Since the class of 2023 and below came, the school has gone downhill. It gets worse every year a new class comes in. The kids are very bad and disrespectful. Vaping and drugs is a huge problem. Many of the students have the audacity to vape IN THE CLASSROOM. Almost everyday I see people coming into school high on drugs. Many times it’s hard to concentrate because the class is always being disrupted.

I do have to say that the music program isn’t bad though.

I am a 8th grade student here. The teachers are very nice and supportive but, the food here is terrible. I feel safe here.
Some teachers go above and beyond and some teachers are okay with students being mediocre.
