Story from parent Patricia Robbins

My son came to Southern School of Engineering after attending a small private school since age 3. We had concerns about the quality of education that he would receive in a public school setting, as well as how he would deal with a much larger class size. I am pleased and proud to say that at SSOE he has experienced continued academic success and personal growth. His teachers were always encouraging and supportive. The principal and counselor consistently “set the bar” high to keep him focused on his goals. My son received the individual attention that he needed to be a successful student.

I am not saying that he didn’t experience any difficulties and frustrations. He is a teenage boy, after all. But when he was faced with these challenging situations he received the correction, guidance and support necessary for him to move forward. This, in addition to his school related extra-curricular activities, made for a wonderful public school experience for my son…and his parents!!
