Welcome to South Mountain School! Home to the Superstars! We are unique from other elementary schools in the district in that we have two locations, but are considered just one school. We have 2 separate school buildings, the "Big School" and the Annex. Currently the Big School has classrooms for part of our kindergarten classes and grades 2-5. The Annex has houses part of our kindergarten classes and all of our 1st grade classrooms. Once the current construction is complete the Big School will be grades 2-5 and the Annex will be grades K-1. Although we may be in two separate locations, we all operate together as one big superstar community!
