The student to teacher ratio is NOT 13 to 1. The average they use is so low because there are special education students who need VERY small class sizes and multiple teachers and aides. If your child is in a regular classroom, the number of students will be in the high twenties or low thirties.

I have had two children go through South, and both had a good experience. Teachers were mostly above-average, but, as with any public school, some were not so great.

South is a great school with great teachers...some teachers are young who connect with our me and my friends. I have been on the honor roll since 6th grade. I am now in 8th. South has a lot of sports just brought back. They also have a lot of clubs. Keep up the good work South Brandywine!!!

I feel South Brandywine Middle School was a great learning experience. While my two oldest sons went to North Brandywine, my two younger children went to South. South has more discipline and is steering the kids in the right direction. Keep it up South.

South Brandywine provides a solid educational foundation for high school. The teachers are dedicated and accessible, and the school promotes good learning habits.

My daughter is a seventh grader at SBMS. She was taught things in her science class that I was taught as an undergraduate. I think the teaching staff is excellent. She has already grasped a lot of geometry fundamentals and will begin algebra in 8th grade next year as her full math curriculum. I truly ...  Read more

The only thing I can say about this school is this: I have one daughter in 6th grade at South Brandywine, and another daughter in 5th grade at a charter school. My 5th grader is being taught things that my 6th grader has NOT been taught yet.
