The teachers at this school go above and beyond! The teachers realize that because our school is so small, they have to chip in in other areas. For the most part, you don't hear a teacher at Southland use the phrase, "That's not my job." When our Athletic Director left for another position, our principal stepped up and took the position over. On some days, you can see our Superintendent drive the school bus. They all realize that it takes a village and everyone chips in as needed.

The administrators at the school attempt to be fair in issuing discipline. They have a zero tolerance for unacceptable behaviors which includes bullying. They also have an open door policy which allows parents to ask questions regarding their child's education. This is an extremely small school with only about 150 students K-12, so there is very little a student can get away with without someone finding out. The small class size enable students to get more one on one time with teachers. It is a close-knit community where everyone tries to help one another succeed. It is unique in that Southland has a 100% graduation rate. The administration and teachers attempt to meet the needs of each individual student. It was also rated a top school in US News and World Report.
The school expends its tiny budget as best it can by offering the best it can for it's students. The school is a fairly modern facility which is in great condition. They have up-to-date technological facilities for their students. They offer college prep courses for those interested. They encourage parental involvement and include a document each parent signs at the beginning of the year outlining parent rights, responsibilities, and requirements. The school genuinely uses what it has to offer the best education.
