This school bullies the bullied. My son was harassed by the students and staff. When it was reported that a student was bringing drugs on campus nothing was done to him. We also had proof that he brought it on school campus. Then my child's friend was accused of something by the children that were harassing/bulling him. With no proof at all my son was question and searched for knowing the student. I myself watched as the Vice Principal bullied my son so my child would give him(Vice Principal) the response he wanted. I would not recommend this school to anyone. My son was pulled out on independent study and my sons work was turned in by his dad. The work was never given to the teachers. It was lost. The teachers did not notify me at anytime that my son was getting a bad grade in their class. I had emailed them several times with my phone number to contact me with any problems and they never have. This school is very unorganized and very unprofessional. My students right were violated and he was harassed by the teachers that were supposed to be protecting him.

The office called to complain about my son making a mess even sent him to detention that entire day. Low and behold they punished the wrong student! No apology or compassion. Getting a straight answer is almost impossible. My kid was bullied to the point of tears with no relief. They never saw the constant teasing as a problem.

This school is not safe for any student to attend unless the student wraps the office staff around their finger. My son who attended this school for two years was bullied by a student on more than one occasion and the school did nothing. On a day when the other student threatened to jump my son, the school finally took a little notice and suspended the kid, but rather than sending him home they told him of my son's allegations against him and then sent him back out onto campus "because he said he was going to behave, and they had no reason not to believe him because he was an office aide". The kid sought my son out and beat him up. The administrator was never reprimanded for allowing my son to be beat up. The administrators fail to call parents when incidents occcur with their children and they have to visit the office, and they have no concern about the students with the exception of keeping them coming back so they get there ADA.

Kiki - Apr 25, 2012 Ranchero is riddled with gangs . My son keeps getting beat up as the school seems unable to maintain safety on the campus. More and more this schools moral is disappearing. My neighbor had to home school their child because the school could not stop the violence from escalating to such a degree that the child feared for her life. What is going on with this "school". I am going to complain to the school board about this horrible school.

The best thing this school has going for it and has had going for it in the past is good leadership. The demographics of the school create many challenges that aren't the fault of the teachers. Kids lacking discipline or strong values in the home are the minority but create the majority of the problems and take up the time of the staff and counsellors. There should be far less tolerance of bad behavior and they should be quicker to send them to another school where they can get more directed attention. It would give the teachers far more support to know they can actually control their classes with real consequences for the few who are truly disruptive and often rude, vulgar or even dangerous. It also sends a message to the parents to keep thier kids in line too.

RMS is a great school with caring teachers and staff. Due to budget constraints, there are always problems with offering all that our students need and deserve to help them succeed, but most of the staff will go out of their way to find a way, even dipping into their own salaries. Even with this, parents must be partners with their children's teachers. We can't do it alone. There are too many needs now with the demographics we deal with. The students with the most success have involved parents. At Ranchero, we have many great kids and involved parents. This is the key to being the best for the students.

Not helping the children, that need the most help. Teachers should teach, not expect the parents to do all the teaching after school. The homework is by far to extensive. We have to have family time with our children, for more than just school work.

I love Ranchero Middle School, All though it is pretty complicated, To survive at Ranchero Middle School you have to go to school and stay out of troubles way.Do what you got to do and go home. Ranchero is a talented school. But hey take a look at ranchero you would see that mexicans blacks and whites walk the halls with no problems...when you get started its very easy they show you around and everybodies very helpful.... I lover Ranchero its the best middle school I ever been to

Although this is a clean and friendly school, there are exceptions. I felt my child was not challenged enough, not in the sense that they are not given enough work or projects, but that she was not provoked or stimulated mentally or intellectually. However, her teachers were for the most part intelligent and kind. Sports and clubs are available, although i feel as though they could be brought up to higher standards. Ranchero is a nice campus, with excellent safety and good school spirit.

Overall, Ranchero is an awesome school. 7th grade Honors S.S. Ms. Pifer is the greatest of the greatest. As for 8th grade, Mr. Thompson is vigorous but great. Many of the staff is great, with exceptions, as in any school. Ranchero is the best jr. high/middle school in the area. Oh, and the new principal could be a little more genuine and enthusiastic. Overall, Ranchero's great.

Ranchero middle school is a good school. Most teachers are friendly, but some are not helpful enough to the students and they dont communicate to the parents enough. Ranchero has great princible leadership and a healthy environment. Good lunches that are not too fatty so the students stay healthy. There are many after school programs, but they do not encourage the students to get into them. There parental involvment in the school is poor. They send letters home about two times every month and i think that it should be more then that. Other then this ranchero middle school is a fairly well school.

Ranchero Middle school is a great school. My son went there for both 7th and 8th grade and has done exceptional. He realy loved most of the teachers and said the principal was the nicest he's ever had. The have alot of school activities such as band class, computer class, sport. Every friday they have activities in the quad area and do special things for doing well in school. I would recomend this school to all parents moving to Hesperia, CA.
