Welcome to the 2015-2016 South Middle School Year!

At South Middle School, we are committed to the whole child. Our mission is to create a safe learning environment that is relationship centered and responsive to our scholars’ academic and social needs. Our scholars dig into real world problems to learn for mastery and to allow them access to the lives they want to lead. We share our passion and motivation to collectively inspire and motivate our scholars. We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community members actively involved in learning.

En la escuela Secundaria South, estamos comprometidos a todos los niños. Nuestra misión es crear un ambiente de aprendizaje seguro que está centrada en relación y que responda a las necesidades académicas y sociales de nuestros estudiantes. Nuestros estudiantes excavan en problemas del mundo real para aprender a dominar y permitirles el acceso a la vida que quieren llevar.

Compartimos nuestra pasión y la motivación para inspirar colectivamente y motivar a nuestros estudiantes. Nos esforzamos por tener a nuestros padres, maestros y miembros de la comunidad que participan activamente en el aprendizaje.

No Place for Hate

South Middle School has been designated a “No Place for Hate” school since the 2013-2014 school year by the Anti-Defamation League. No Place for Hate helps to create and sustain an inclusive school environment where all students feel valued and have the opportunity to succeed by promoting respect for individual difference while challenging bigotry and prejudice.

Students at South have signed their Resolution of Respect pledge two years in a row! 

Resolution of Respect

I pledge from this day forward to do my best to combat prejudice and to stop those who, because of hate or ignorance, would hurt anyone or violate their civil rights. I will try at all times to be aware of my own biases and seek to gain understanding of those who I perceive as being different from myself. I will speak out against all forms of prejudice and discrimination. I will reach out to support those who are targets of hate. I will think about specific ways my community members can promote respect for people and create a prejudice-free zone. I firmly believe that one person can make a difference and that no person can be an innocent bystander when it comes to opposing hate. I recognize that respecting individual dignity, achieving equality and promoting inter-group harmony are the responsibilities of all people.

By signing this pledge, I commit myself to creating a community that is NO PLACE FOR HATE® .
