I have experienced Southfield School as a student, parent, and board member. This means I have personally experienced the school from every angle except TEACHER. However, my wife was a teacher for many years, so I can confidently say that - as a family - Southfield School has been thoroughly vetted...The result? Pure EXCELLENCE. There is, hands down, no better school in the city, Parish, region - likely even in the country and I'd like to say in the world. It begins with that first day. I still remember it vividly. I may have been more nervous than my son as my wife and I brought him into his first day of preschool. Of course every child reacts differently, but he was immediately enthralled with the dinosaur/fossil exhibit he found straight away and never looked back. Fast forward nearly 10 years and many grades and teachers, and he has thrived - as has my daughter. Two very different personalities, both of which were met right where they are, by every teacher they have encountered all the way through. Seeing an otherwise shy, introvert willingly take the stage MULTIPLE times to perform in front of his peers and a crowd of parents is reason enough all by itself (let's face it, there may not be a single career path the doesn't require you to be comfortable talking in front of a group of people at some point). Then contrast this with my daughter, who is comfortable in front of ANYONE, and all that Mrs. Davis (music teacher - who taught ME, by the way) and Mrs. Courtney (drama teacher) have done to encourage her and "refine" her rather enthusiastic spirit, and you have, well - as close to a perfect setting for children to succeed in school that I've ever encountered.To put it the way I've heard many kids who are Southfield alums put it (in reference to how much fun they have): "It's like you're learning and you don't even know it."We truly are "developing a lifelong love of learning" for every different type of child, every day. And it still gives me goosebumps to see it happening.There is not a SINGLE SHRED OF DOUBT in my mind that my children will go on to be successful in high school, college and ultimately whatever career field they choose, because of the foundation built in them by the amazing teachers, staff, peers - just EVERYONE - at Southfield School!!! We are so very blessed to be part of the Southfield family, and I encourage ANYONE to just come visit to see it for yourself. It is truly magical. No seriously. you need to schedule a tour.Right now.

A truly wonderful school! Both of my children attend Southfield Middle School, and we LOVE it here! The teachers are attentive to the students' academic and emotional needs. The kids are greeted with smiles and hugs when they enter the halls and classrooms. My girls have had countless opportunities to try out and succeed in several academic and extra-curricular activities (cheerleading, science fair, musicals, talent show, Artbreak, Geography Bee, and many more). My oldest speaks French for FUN after only nine weeks of lessons! We are blessed to be a part of this school and encourage everyone to experience Southfield School and discover how it can inspire your child/children, too.

Absolute best program ever! Very good theatre and arts program that helped my daughter come out of her shell. The class sizes are small to help your child learn more. My daughter went from being behind in math and science to excelling in school and making straight A's. They teach advanced material but they can individualize it more to help their students learn the material. Best decision we ever made!

Absolutely the BEST school in Shreveport/Bossier City. I encourage you to find another warm and caring environment for your child in grades PS2 - 8th grade that not only challenges your child but provides them with the encouragement to succeed and be confident in themselves. All of my children are attending Southfield and I would recommend this amazing school to anyone! Take a tour...you will not be disappointed!

This hub page lists over three dozen articles dealing with issues in high school such as academics and discipline.
TLTR? There are a couple of private school documents which you need to read.
