    Both my children attend this school, 6th and 8th grade. Overall, we are very satisfied with the attention of teachers, how well organized the school is and most importantly the education both of my children are receiving.

    I recently went to Southampton and I thought it was a decent school. The teachers do their job well and the classrooms are clean and organized. The Unified Arts programs they offer are hands on and intruiging. They conduct monthly fire drills and the principal is kind but also uses dicipline if needed. However, there is a big bullying problem. I can tell the school is trying to put an end to this, but their efforts are in vain. Over all, Southampton Middle is a good school, and I learned a lot there.

    My son is a 7th grade student on the top band team. We are very happy with Southampton. The administration runs a tight ship and the teachers are excellent. Programs like Gettysburg preservation and the Marathon of Achievement make Southampton a special place. Congratulations!

    Outstanding school. Students are well prepared for high school. Teachers and administration are truly dedicated. The building is immaculate. My two children felt safe and happy and have fond memories of their middle school years.

    I am currently an eight grader at Southampton Middle School and I am soon going to be moving. Out of the schools I've seen, where i will be moving I was not really impressed. If I had the choice of any school to go to this would be the one. Teachers here are very caring and there are a lot of extra programs for students.

    My daughter is in her last year at Southampton and loves the school. Teachers are caring and the kids get a lot out of classes, Administration runs a tight ship and the bullying issues we have run into have been dealt with immediately. I have heard of other parents having a harder time getting hard core bullies expelled but it eventually happened. My daughter an I both wish HCPS had passed the uniform code because uniforms would take a lot of stress off of pre-teens and teens. There are some extracurricular clubs but the crushing HW load means that my daughter does not have time to do anything but HW which has been the most stressful thing about school.

    I'm a junior now and I attended Southampton. I loved it, it mixed different types of people and it was fun and challenging for me and many of my friends. I remember that it had some overcrowding issues but I didn't really have a problem with it. As for preparing us for high school I think they did a fine job. I'm now an honor student and taking ap classes. I think that had more to do with the student though, not necessarily their middle school.

    This school is ridiculously overcrowded; I had no choice but to remove my kids from the district after elem. school for fear of the routine 'falling through the cracks' of Southampton

    Southampton Middle School is excellent. There were overcrowding issues in the past but the opening of a new school has taken care of that problem. As for after school sports, there is an excellent parks and rec program to use.

    This school needs many improvements. The Teachers really don't teach, they just hand you a study guide that is almost a carbon copy of the test/quiz. As a result,students study skills are not developed for high school. Extracurricular activities? Oh, there are no extracurricular activities/sports. HCPS can't allocate any funds into their education budget for a few after school sports to keep kids active and out of trouble?
