When people move to your neighborhood because of the school - you know something good is happening. Southmoor Elementary is THAT school. The leadership is innovative, the teachers are amazing, the parent community is supportive and the education is second to none. The staff pours their heart and soul into our kids and it shows in the joy you witness in the classrooms, the confidence of those kids and the success of the alums. No school is perfect, but Southmoor is close!!!
