  • Message From the Principal

    by
    What makes South Middle School unique? It's the warm educational climate, where students come first and our teachers focus on 21st century educational skills, emphasizing technology integration and active learning as primary forms of engagement. Our staff understands the social and development needs of young adolescents and with this in mind we promote positive social interaction, school spirit, and a persistence in rigorous instruction. We thank you for sharing your child with us, and I encourage you to contact me with questions or suggestions at any time.
     
    Respectfully,
    Jennifer Bessolo, Ed.D.
