23 Parent Reviews for Surfside Middle School

My daughter chose to go to Surfside for her 8th grade year. It is by far the worst school my ever daughter has ever attended. The teachers and staff do not put the students first. There are some teachers that will even go as far as blaming the students for their lack of teaching/planning skills.

Fantastic school! I've been familiar with Surfside for several years. My two children attend, and I am on the faculty. Surfside offers excellent academics, as well as a plethora of sports, electives, and extra curricular activities. There is definitely a team atmosphere, both inside and outside ...  Read more
