This school had it's good points, but as a student, it was bad. to start off with, the curriculum is MIA. in upper elementary, the teachers were to busy making us clean up after them, and screaming at us for leaving food in the trash cans instead of putting it in the recycle bins. I found that i had to teach myself. Also, it is socially un preparing. This school is all about gossip and cliques. Plus, my parents had to pay 300+ dollars for p.e., and extracurricular, when there was none. The teachers told all the students that public schools were torturous, and even scared children into not going to other schools. Also, now that i am in a public school, and very happy about it, i realize that the staff and faculties behavior was really bad. Even though the staff "encouraged' us to have our own opnions, if they did not fit those of the teachers, we were put down, and looked at as if we were corrupting the ways they taught. Overall, i am happy that i now go to a great school, which is public. Old Vail Middle School is where i'm at, and i am glad to get away from the poison of that school.
