At Southfield School, we understand that finding the right school and providing the best education for your child strikes at the heart of every parent. We are the only area private school to offer Variable Tuition, a plan based on factors such as household income and number of children. We also offer a Military Grant for active duty families. The true cost of educating a child is not covered by tuition alone. As a non-profit organization, we depend on donors and friends to help support our efforts to cultivate character, kindness, and a lifelong love of learning in our students. Students build confidence through performance opportunities from Preschool through 8th Grade. Southfield Alumni are accepted to many of the finest colleges and universities in the nation.


"Six years and three kids in…I am so happy that Southfield is our home. The teachers are responsive and caring, the students/families are wonderful, and the administration is more accommodating to special needs than could be expected. This place truly has a different perspective, and it's one that I couldn't live without at this point. Thanks to everyone who makes Southfield so special." - Andrew Banker

"I went to Southfield for 1st through 8th grade and graduated in 2004. I loved it. Educationally, I think 1 main thing I got from Southfield was a love of reading. I used to read books under my desk during class, and the teachers would look the other way, haha. Or I'd keep borrowing books from the class library without officially checking them out, and then bring back a big crate of books at the end of the year. Another big thing was a sense of wonder. I loved Civilization Fair, where each grade we'd deep dive into a different civilization and learn all about it. Or Electric City in 2nd grade, where the circuits blew my mind. We did so many things that were both educational and fun, and reinforced a sense of coolness about learning, of curiosity about the world. The other big thing I loved about Southfield was that it was warm, like a big family. All my teachers still remember me and my family. I had coffee with Mr. Walker a few months ago. That school was like my home: I have so many memories there. I went to Magnet for high school and Princeton for college. I felt well-prepared for both. I really recommend this school." - John Burford

"In search of which school would be able to provide the best balance of education, fun and enrichment, I shopped around at several preschools in Shreveport/Bossier 9 years ago. Both my husband and I have careers and we wanted an environment in which we felt 100% comfortable leaving our 4 young children on a daily basis. Impressed by the reputation of Southfield, the fine arts enrichment and the 6:1 student-teacher ratio for preschoolers alone, I enrolled all 4 of our children within a day of our tour. Quite impressed that 50% of lower school teachers hold Master's degree or higher, and watching our children grow with confidence, loving to read, loving to wake up to go to school, we knew we were in the right place. We are now transitioning into Middle School and couldn't be happier. I highly recommend you tour Southfield and learn about all this school has to offer. Not only are the statistics spectacular, it's the over- all ambiance and the encouraging environment that I could only find at Southfield School." - Jordan Thaxton

"If you are looking for an incredible school with endless opportunities, then Southfield is the answer. All students feel loved, supported and nurtured. It's a HAPPY place that encourages life long love of learning. I can't say enough about the top notch faculty that are the best in the subjects they teach and they LOVE Southfield and it's students. It makes all the difference in the world." - Ashley Atkins

"Love our creative school that is teaching my son stop-motion animation and my daughter is about to walk on stilts in the middle school play. Teach kids to love to learn and they will go far and think outside the box. The possibilities for our children's futures are endless but we have to give them those opportunities. Thank you Southfield School!" - Ginger Sanders Auer

"It's so much fun they even forget they're learning! Southfield School enhances the classroom experience beyond textbooks through enrichment classes like French, art, music, science lab, cooking, drama, technology and so much more." - Kelly Guilbert
