All three neighborhood schools make up the Southpark Campus. This area consists of 120 acres of wooded, hilly terrain crossed by two creeks and nature trails. These grounds are used for various athletic events as well as hands-on learning experiences. You will see neighborhood families utilizing the playgrounds, tracks and fields at these schools on a daily basis. The “campus” really provides a true community school environment.
