School Reviews

  • Recommended September 15, 2008 - Southview Middle school, is a great school. It is a multiple intelligence school. The teachers are very supportive as far as extra-curricular activities such as, band, orchestra, track, soccer, pep squad, etc. The school's principal Mrs.Dusty Tatum, is an excellent principal! As a student at Southview Middle school, I would highly recommend Southview as a school you would want to have your student to attend. - Posted by Student/Alumni
