My child has issues all last year at this school. The addressing of these concerns were swept under the rug over and over. I did not quit though. I will advocate for my child, that is my job. The bullying at this school is ridiculous. Teachers do not follow protocol when it somes to addressing these issues, and neither do the administrators. Upon bringing one indicent to the attention of an administrator, the bully was actually defended to me. I could not understand the audacity of what was being told to me. I wish there was a way I could revamp this school system as I feel no one, not even the superintendent can handle this properly. All of the schools in Sahuarita are a mess. Steer clear!

We recently moved and my son transferred to this school. He likes the teachers and the students thus far seem nice. He isn't picked on or anything like that. Of course he's a very tall 8th grader which probably helps a little. I am not, however, impressed with the administrative staff WHATSOEVER! 1. We were told to show up at 8:00 and a counselor would escort my son to each class so he would not get lost. a. We showed up at 8:00, but the counselor did not come out until 8:40. He did not introduce himself by name to anyone (parent or student) and simply told the kids to follow him. He did not escort my son to each class and my son failed to find the cafeteria so he did not eat lunch at all that day. 2. Setting up his student ID. He was told later in the week by the cafeteria that he does not show up in the system as a student. After 3 days of dealing with this issue and asking for the staff to contact me, I have had to go down twice to the office to get answers as to why he doesn't show up and where my check is that I wrote to the cafeteria. (I want to ensure it is posted to HIS acct). So, to sum up...kids seem okay, food awesome, staff, meh!

Teachers at SMS are BULLIES! My child is openly picked on for the amusement of other children. If I address it, of course it's " No ma'am, that NEVER happens." my daughter sure does an awful lot of crying because she was, yet again, humiliated! How I would LOVE to sit in these classrooms, and if there was any decent leadership at the top, somebody would be. We are moving in one month, thankfully! I can't wait to get away from this school!

Warning! Warning! Warning! Before seriously considering this school district you might wanna find out what the school's philosophy is! The district believes that a struggling child can take a test multiple times until he/she passes without recording the actual failing grades! If this is something that you can live with then this is the place for your kids, if not then stay away! Do they seriously care about the education of your child or is it manipulation only to convince you, the concerned parent, that the staff isn't sold on the "easy way out!" Ask questions about "re-testing" and what happens to the first grade. Their computer grading website "worldbyme" will not show failing grades! Good luck and choose wisely!

Do whatever you have to to get your kids in another school. My son was told by another kid, during an altercation, that since he knew the principal that my son would be the only one to get in trouble. This kid was absolutely correct, even though he only took reasonable measures to defend himself against a physical attack. The teachers were lackluster at best, and we were much happier when we moved into a neighboring school district. I am happy to have my kids out of the environment at Sahuarita Intermediate School.

After being here in Sahuarita for 2 Years this school does not offer to much security for our kids. I would not recomend this School to anyone.

I am very happy to be leaving the school this year. The classrooms are over crowded and they teach the AIM test instead of teaching us for high school. It is a great social event to go to school but other wise a usless experience.

The school is getting there. New leadership is showing with improved parental involvement. It is no longer discouraged. Curriculum ok. Could be better. Teacher turn over high but leveling out. Town boomed and the school suffered. Maybe things are on the right track now. We can hope.

Over crowding should end with the new schools opening, library growing, new principal, academic competitions. PTO starting this year. I only wish all these things happened sooner since my child will be leaving at the end of this year.

With the new principal in place it seems the school is finally on track. Regardless of the problems the school under new leadership holds great promise and is finally moving in the right direction.

The school requires the children to wear uniforms which makes shopping for school [clothes] easier. They've recently added single sex classes where some of the classes are all boys or all girls, up to parents if you want your child to participate.
