Southern Elementary opened in August 1969 and was renovated in 2001. We celebrate the success of all children. Our mascot is Splash the Dolphin, and we proudly "Splash for success." We offer a full academic program that includes special area classes such as art, physical education, music, library, Spanish, and new for the 2013-2014 school year, a STEM lab.

What makes our school special

Beyond the core academic subjects, Southern is committed to providing a rich arts education program. We are proud to offer our students the opportunity to use the MIE keyboard lab. We also have a fifth-grade performing troupe called Stix that wows audiences with drumming expertise. And our third, fourth- and fifth-graders can perform with the "Sounds" group, which combines movement and music.

Southern provides a variety of after school program that provide enrichment in a number of areas. Our students can participate in the Student Technology Leadership Program, Girls on the Run, Southern Sisters, Academic Team, Art Club and much more.
