  • Reviewed by Former Student on September 24, 2010
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Southern Lehigh Middle School is a great school with great teachers. The school no longer has 6th through eighth, the school now only caters to 7th and 8th grades. The Spanish program is, in my opinion, wonderful, and I am now fluent in Spanish. I also went through the Spanish Immersion program at Liberty Bell Elementary School. The teachers at SLMS are so helpful and I recieved almost all A's through my career at SLMS thanks to them
