Rancho Medanos is a fantastice Junior High School. Each year the staff and students are challenged to grow and develop. There is a high level of collaboration amongst staff and we have high expectations for student academics and behavior. Our parent club is fairly small but run by dedicated and involved parents. I believe our school would continue to excel if more parents became active participants in the education of their children.
Well, I attend Rancho and I honestly agree that Hillview is better. There is something about it that just bores me. It's a new school, but has furniture from Central. I hate the way it is, most of the teachers, and mostly I hate the way it's ran.
Who is writing these reviews? I work at Rancho Medanos and it is a brand new school. We began last year Fall of 2009 and I see reviews dating back to 2006. What school are you talking about because it is not Rancho. The Rancho Medanos that I work at is a good school with dedicated teachers. We are always working on ways to improve!
I love my school and love my teachers they are great people ecspecially Cras
i go to rancho and i hate it. i am advanced in most areas and i am in advanced classes but yet i am bored so i am trying to get online schooling. p.s.(worst behavior my peers sicken me)
This year, this school has done a horrible job. There is no school spirit. The level of parent involvement is horrible! I would never send my child to this school.
Although the school was in bad shape for the past couple of years, I have seen a big improvement in the leve of professionalism and commitment of the staff in the past two years-keep up the good work!
One of the worst schools I've ever been to, quite honestly. the teachers don't all exactly teach, and there are no interesting, fun activities for kids to get involved in for them to avoid getting into trouble. Horrible school.
This is an over all good school. They have greatly improved. We really work hard! We could use some more extracuricular activities. But we have a lot of spirit!
This school is great for all children grades 6-8! I highly reccomend this school to anyone looking for a good junior high!
I graduated from CJHS in 2002. The school presented me many opportunities in both sports and academics. However, little parent involvement, no teacher supervision, and gang violence were all present as well. Going to school was very difficult for my brothers and me because I was constantly picked on. Pittsburg in general is not the best place to raise a family, especially one who is as diverse and open-minded as my own.
