    Greetings and welcome to the South View Middle School Community!

    It is an honor and a privilege to be the principal of South View Middle School. We are proud of our hard-working, positive, and engaged community of learners, staff, and families.

    Nearly 1000 students in grades 6-8 and over 100 staff members make up the South View family. We feature a highly-qualified, dedicated staff and work diligently to meet the unique academic, social, and emotional needs of the middle level child. We work in partnership with our parents and families, who are highly engaged in their student’s academic endeavors and in South View’s programs and activities as a whole. There are many opportunities for you to be involved in our school community.

    South View is also known as a school that truly cares about its students.   For years we have sought to embody the“South View Spirit.” Posters, pictures, and decals around the building remind us every day of our values and our commitment to students and to each other. Part of the South View Spirit is being a school that welcomes all students.  In addition to our caring staff, we also provide a number of groups and programs to be sure that all students have a chance to connect, be involved and feel a sense of belonging.

    South View serves as an example of Edina's tradition of excellence and we are committed to the district’s All for All mission and embrace the effort to further personalize the experience our young people have while in middle school. We are a learning community, dedicated to helping each student maximize their potential as powerful learners.

    We look forward to continuing our tradition of excellence in partnership with you.

    Dr. Tim Anderson, Ed. D.
