This school shoves about 36 students in classrooms that are not very big to begin with. Many of the students are more concerned with who they want to fight than what they want to learn. Many Students scream and holler, throw sharp objects, bully, and have no respect for authority. With classes of 36, having 5 or so "bad apples" ruins the learning opportunities for the others. Most teachers experience the same issues with the same classes. Teachers try to call the parents of disruptive kids and many of their phone numbers are disconnected or they don't answer the phone therefore the teachers can't receive much help. The most disruptive students don't even listen to the administration in most cases because the punishments aren't harsh enough. I would not recommend this school to a parent who has a well-behaved child who wants to learn. They will be miserable and will not achieve what they could elsewhere.
The problem with this school is OVERCROWDING. For no one to want to let their kids attend this school, there sure is an over abundance of children! This is NOT a case of bad teachers. You need to look higher up. You don't blame the server for what the cook screws up. Also, parents need to take responsibility for the behavior their child showcases in school!
Iam a parent of a student at Scarbrough Middle School. I think that the problem at Scarbrough goes way beyound the school grounds. I sometimes feel as though we as a community are not doing are part to help educate our children.The children grades are slipping not because of many of the students are not trying hard enough is because we have to look at the bigger problem all the teachers dont feel as if they owe the children the same education that they have or feel as though i got mine its up to them to get theirs. I feel like no one cares about our children as a whole and its not their fault .But we as parents need to also stand behind and educate our children also because the bigget part of educating our children starts at home with love and support for our children.
