Our mission at South Elementary School is to provide learning experiences that develop those habits and traits necessary to become independent learners.

We view each child as a unique individual and learner.

We want children to feel good about themselves, to love learning and to behave in socially acceptable ways. In this nurturing atmosphere of caring and trust, each child can develop to his or her potential.

Our youngsters are truly the resources for the future. For this reason, we encourage leadership, acceptance of others, civic mindedness (both locally and globally), good citizenship, and embracing 21st century skills.

We recognize the role parents play in their child’s education. We support and encourage a strong partnership between home and school.
