Well I don't know about the years in the past, but 2012-2013, I had an amazing time at Dale. The teachers were AMAZING! Funny, nice, and responsible. The few teachers that people disliked were the really strict teachers, but I didn't find anything wrong with them they're just doing their job. I suggest this school to anyone. The ONLY thing I didn't like was the assistant principle. She was really mean, but she came from Orangview school I think. The best experience was my history class, my teacher, Mr U, was probably the best teacher in the school. He explained things really well, was very nice, and made everything interesting.I loved this school, and I'm gonna miss it!
#1 The staff member refuses to release records-which is against the California Law.She tells me to have our current school call her. #2 Current school calls and request records (they have a copy of records release-signed by parent and and ready to fax it.They still refuse to release records and yell at the other school's admission staff. #3 They yell at me calling me a negligent parent for not having records (I never received them.) #4 I decided I had enough- so while I call district,staff admits that she can't find the records. What is going on at this school? So for your negligence in the office, you try to cover it up by berating and place the blame on me? You have a problem doing our job? You really should be ashamed of yourself! I'm sorry, but there are to many unemployed people that love to have your job and would take them seriously.
Just to let you know that I would not recommend this school, if this is your child's home school, go to the district and get a transfer quick. The teachers are good, but must stay on top of them, my child turned in the work but had to do the assignment again because some of the teachers willl lose the work. The office staff (attendance office) is great, but the principal and the assistant principal really need some training themselves. Need to get rid of the ICE program, yes they call it that there, it is a place where your child goes when he/she gets in trouble can be for something small and they are sent there. The child would do the work there, but most of the time the teacher would not get the work and makes the child fall behind. Also the child writes a letter and it is mailed to the home. Need to change the name of the ICE program because the school is mostly hispanic and to call the program ICE??!! This is the worst school that we had ever experienced. Really need to revamp this school.
I went to this school last year. I asked for a few honors classes and I got them after they saw how great my grades were. The teachers were amazing. My Math teacher, Mrs. Tarver. Had tutoring during lunch, before school, and after school. I had all A's and everyone was nice. Of course there were a few mean kids. But, everyone was nice. My new school, San Tan Jr. High School in chandler Az. everyone is mean and stuckup. But this school, the people are much nicer. The only problem with this school is that it is in a bad area and not much money going into the school. But, I had a good time and was happier in this school than in my new school which is in a better area.
My two children both attened Dale JHS. My son had 3 honors classes in 8th and 4 in 7th. My daugther had all honors in both 7th and 8th. In 8th grade both of my children were involed in AVID a great program which is teacher by, Dr.Schwartz one of the best teachers. I think the school needs more activites and needs to have more school spirit. Although the principal does go on the announcements but they should have a bit of more spirit. A good thing ab out this school id the Honor Roll breakfast that is great both my children promoted with a 3.9 gpa.
This school was fair. I had 4 honor classes. It didn't have too much school spirit and some of the teachers were awesome. There wasn't a lot of clubs though. People there are pretty cool.
This school was awesome I had 4 honors classes and Dale offers lots of clubs this school rocks this year I am going to high school but dale has been a good part of my life
My son has had a wonderful experience at this school. He has 4 honors classes with great teachers, band, foreign language, and an exceptional award winning AVID program. The discipline and safety are exceptional and are what make this school better than average.
Dale Jr. High is a fairly good school in my opinion. Although it lacks some extracurricular activities and clubs it does have a few. The teachers are great and try their best to connect with the students and help them the best they can. It is, however, true that the school rules are slightly enforced a bit much mainly tucking in the shirts. -Anonymous Student
Dale offers both standard classes and honors classes in a variety of subjects (English, Science, History, and Math). Students can get involved in ASB and parents are encouraged to get involved in Site Counsel and PTA to determine where school funds are spent. My student has had some wonderful teachers.Sports programs are available.
Some are beginning to care more about rules and conformity than they do about our children. They treat them as if they were in reform school and not public school.
