  • Dear Parents,

    If you want your child or children to get a good education and have lots of fun, then south middle school in aurora,co is your school. This school is not only a middle school, it is a school of excellence and determination.
    You may ask what makes this school so different from the other middle schools on earth, and I may answer that it is not different. Regular adults run the school, regular children attend the school and regular parents send their children to this school. Many students and staff members have or have had the same issues that many of the world has or is facing. The only change is that no one judges another when at South. Instead of backstabbing and being deceitful, the students and staff at south middle school 'always' try their best to help everyone feel welcome. Honestly it is like a home away from home. So if you want your child to be successful and comfortable when they endure the terrifying hardships of adulthood, then South Middle School is the place of the west that does nothing but encourage success...
