Excellence Indicator System report.
Southland School is the heart of Southland,
a community located southeast of Lubbock. No recent renovations have been made
to the school building, which was constructed in 1976. However, each classroom
is equipped with an Internet-connected computer. The campus also includes a computer
lab featuring the latest technology.
A unique feature of the school is a writing
center for high school students. Special events each year include, an open house
where parents and the community visit the school and an annual Books and Breakfast
reading program for elementary school students.
The school offers college
credit courses and a distance-learning lab to high school students through programs
offered by South Plains College, West Texas A&M University and other universities
and technical schools.
The campus includes playground facilities with amenities
such as a merry-go-round and a slide.
One of the biggest advantages that Southland
School offers is that one facility houses all grades. Students from kindergarten
through the 12th grade go to school together and know each other. That provides
consistency throughout students' school years.
Students compete in track,
football, and basketball, cross-country running, tennis and golf as well as academic
contests. Each year, senior students take a trip.
Parents take a role in school
activities through the Southland Booster Club.
