Parent's Review of South View Middle School in Edina,

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

South View Middle School

In what town or city is this school located?

Edina

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

American

What grade levels are represented at this school?

6-9

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Many children take the bus in the morning and many are also dropped off, mostly the kids in the outer area's of Edina.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

The schools facilities are excellent and if the city passes a referendum on Nov. 4th the school and High School will each recieve a brand new "Event Wing". There are too many extra-curricular activites so I will name a few, there is Varsity Soccer, Football (American), Basball/ Softball, Swimming, and there are some open school clubs too like Mock Trial, Math Olympiad and Knowldge Masters.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

There are excellent ESL (English is a second Lanuage) courses available and the school offers French, German, Latin and Spainish, plus every student is required to take Language Arts every year.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

The parents are very involved, the schools grades are passed out either over the internet to parents e-mails or through mail directly to the paretns. The School Council is made entirely of parents and there are volunteer parent-teacher conferences every quarter.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

I would say this is the school to go to for anyone coming to the Minneapolis-St. Paul region, South View has been ranked in the top 10 Middle Schools of the country fo 5 years running, and Edina Public Schools is nationally recognized as one of the best school districts in the country. They offer many activities and the students are very welcoming, I love to tell the story that I heard from the principal about how last year there were 21 new 9th graders coming into SVMS (South View Middle School) and wi9thin 3 weeks all were asked if they had meet anyone they liked to be around and all answered "I love hanging around with everyone, they are all so inviting."
