We came into this school mid year and a littel nurves, my boys attended Mt.View here in beaumont but 2 years and im beyound happy to have them out of there .San Gorgonio has welcomed us and helped us in any way possable i explaind i could not afford to buy a hole new set of P.E clothes at this time i also explained that this changing schools was not my choice but the choice of the carless princpule of Mt.View , Not only did they understand they looked at me and said dont worry they will be taking care of and the school gave them P.E clothes .I am not one for change and this change was very hard but after the meating on the first day we started at San.G we welcomed this change with open arms i think we will be very happy and this was a great way to start off .2012

To the parent who is unhappy about their special needs student...I believe we have one of the best special education programs around. We have an extremely inclusive approach to meeting the needs of all students, and encourage every student to succeed. Before blasting the school as a whole in a public forum, I would suggest being more specific about a need that wasn't met, and then truly decide if it is the school's responsibility or your own, or a combination of both. As far as PI status, yes, we joined the other 94% of middle schools in California identified as not meeting federal guidelines under a law that mandates unattainable and unmeasurable goals for public schools. I am very proud of our school and the programs we offer. The staff at San G is by far the best I've seen in almost 20 years of teaching.

awful, terrible, horrendous environment for special needs students! Not to mention it received a "Program Improvement" review under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001: that means it is failing as a school! What a disgrace!

My youngest daughter is attending San G., we applied for a inter district so she would not have to attend Mt View. We are very pleased with the school. She has attended 6, 7 and is now in the 8th grade. In the three years she has attended she has only had one poor teacher. The school offers more than Mt. View because it use to be the High School. This school does have more economically disadvantage students and transfer students from Banning. Overall I believe my daughter is getting prepared for highschool. I do have a basis for judgement as my older daughter attended Mt. View Middle School. I am pleased with our choice.

This place is a poor excuse for a school. The teachers a lacking in enthusiasm to teach the kids and the atmosphere isn't all that great. Parents should take an in depth look before puting their kids in to this school. Parents will be suprised at what the find here.

As a parent, I was at first skeptical about San G. My daughter is very bright and I wanted to make sure she would be challenged. I must say, I am very impressed with San G. I have never seen a school that offers the students so many outlets from the textbook instruction. The school is always giving the students electives, sports, music, the arts, and event programs to participate in. Academically, my daughter is definitely being challenged! The teachers take great pride in extending that extra effort to help all students succeed. Even though my daughter took advantage of many of the out of classroom outlets, she made the honor roll all year. She loves San G. and was happy in my decision to keep her there for her middle shool career. I have no doubt that San G. is on its' way to becoming a California Distinguish School.

As a teacher at San Gorgonio Middle School, I can honestly say that I have never experienced a more comfortable work environment. The administration actively involves teachers in school-wide decision making. The staff is probably the most caring and devoted group of adults I have ever encountered. Student achievement is in the forefront of everyone's mind . . . and the kids are great too!

Re the posting: 'Some teachers at this school have a sink or swim mentality that is a death knell...' I am surprised to read such statements. The % of passing students is not public information guesswork at best. Second, proficiency with math is a function of how much one practices. With enough practice, all students can swim and none would sink . The staff at SGMS believes every student can be successful, but some need more time. Hence, struggling math students were offered an extra tutoring class of math --double the time commitment of most schools. Algebra students were offered free Algebra tutoring after school from 3:10 - 4:30 five days per week. The extra time invested with the math helps students out of the so called 'death knell . Finally, I encourage all parents to come visit or make an appt. to meet the teachers. They will be impressed!

I am the parent of a student with a learning disability. I find that the staff really pay attention to his needs, and the special ed program is designed so that he does not stand out as being 'different.' The diversity of the students and all around 'feel' of the school make me confident to send my child there. I believe the teachers have really high standards and expectations for all students.

Some teachers at this school have a sink or swim mentality that is a death knell for many students. When 50% of the students in a teacher's math and science classes are failing, it makes you wonder whether students are, indeed, being failed...failed to be taught effectively!

My kids are new to the school. The teachers have been on top of there academics and have offered help. My kids feel more confident. My child did have an incident at school, but the school was on top of disciplining the other student for there wrong doing. So far, I feel very confident about sending them to SGMS. I hope they offer more extracurricular activities in the future.
