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 three years in a row! 

Resolution of Respect

I will treat others the way I want to be treated. I will respect others even if they are not like me. I will speak out against all forms of prejudice and discrimination. I will reach out to support those who are targets of hate. Everyone should be able to feel safe at school. I want our school to be No Place for Hate®.

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