South View Middle School offers an enthusiastic and challenging learning experience for students, with a focus on:
- Exploratory learning experiences

Mission Statement for South View Middle School
The mission of South View Middle School, working in partnership with the family and community, is to develop in each student the knowledge, self-worth, and life skills necessary to be lifelong learners and responsible citizens by providing relevant curricula; dedicated, qualified staff; and a safe, caring, innovative, and student-centered learning environment.
South View teachers enjoy teaching in a middle school and are well-prepared to teach students at this age level. Over 65% hold advanced degrees. South View staff members regularly present at national conferences on topics such as block scheduling, technology innovations, and effective instructional practices.
Goals and Objectives
- All students will demonstrate improved academic achievement.
- All students will demonstrate positive self-worth and a perception that they are maturing in a safe, caring environment.
- All students will demonstrate ethical behavior and responsible citizenship.
- All students will demonstrate application of their knowledge and the use of resources.
Each student at South View is expected to give back to the community through service work in a variety of forms.
The retreats are a way for students to learn outside the classrooms. Each grade level goes on a retreat to promote teamwork and cooperation. It is a great place to get acquainted with your new team members each year, to learn, and have fun.
Parent representatives also serve on the South View Site Council, a decision-making body comprised of administrators, faculty/staff, students, and parents. The Site Council helps define all-school goals and direct efforts to achieve these goals.
The South View PTO works to support and enhance the educational programs at South View and to strengthen the relationship between home and school. Parent volunteers help with student enrichment and extracurricular activities, communications, special events, support services, and grade-level activities.
