Southview Middle School Reviews

I came to Southview Middle School from a homeschool perspective. I loved the variety of extracurricular activities it had to offer because as a homeschooler, I never had the opportunity to enroll in sports or elective classes and I emersed myself in the social aspect. The teachers at Southview were wonderful, encouraging, and strived to help students advance all ways possible. I was able to get a head start on my college by taking online classes through the school. Throughout my two years at Southview, I might make an adjustment to the 'turning in late policy'. At Southview, when an assignment doesn't get turned in, the student gets an extended amount of time to make up the missing work. I think that this could be detrimental to students because in college a deadline is a hard deadline with no exceptions. Overall, I had a great experience at Southview.

I love Southview! One thing I really love about Southview is how compassionate the teachers are. Another thing is the learning environment. The learning environment is fun but not distracting and everyone is there to learn.
The building is an upgrade from Parkview, and so is the food. The teachers are pretty good, and I feel safe at school.
