Welcome to South Elementary!

  • Welcome to South Elementary, the home of the Mustangs! South is a community school where students learn and grow together. We value the individuality of each child, which leads us to meet each student right where they are, in order to help them reach their fullest potential. The instruction your child will receive at South is data driven and technology based. We utilize district and site-based assessments to monitor the ongoing progress of our students.


    We are thankful for strong parent and community support, especially as demonstrated by our PTO. We host a variety of events throughout the year for our students, parents, and community. Fall Festival, Veterans' Day, and Family Literacy Night are some of our favorite. Additionally, we are a "Gold Rewards School" recognized nationally by the Alliance for Healthier Generations, and we strive to incorporate physical fitness and healthy choices into each classroom.
