Southside was a great school, I loved it. I wish I could stay. It was a wonderful school with lots of great teachers. I think that school has really made me grow as a person.

I am a new seventh grade student at southside miidle school. I don't think that it is a safe school for kids. There are fights there nearly every day and a lot of students get arrested. Also some kids have been caught smoking crack and have started small fires. I don't think this school is a good school.
