My son started fifth grade at Eagle Peak on Monday and he can't stop smiling - so neither can I. He said, "My teacher really likes me, mom!" He feels safe and successful and the rest of the year is seems bright. The principal and office staff have been warm and welcoming - going out of their way to make him feel special. I'm loving this school.
My daughter is thriving in the special ed program at Eagle Peak. They have Community Based Instruction, which is rare at the middle school level in this county, where she gets to go out and work on real-life skills and see jobs that might be of interest to her when she is older. Also, the "resource class" is very supportive, so if/when she has problems with other students she can always go there and talk to her teacher/aides.
This school is awsome I went their 6-8th and loved it...the sports teams are amazing and that is really where the heart of the school lies..I am not sure who is teaching now but talso warren bliss rifkin thudium hansen puterbaugh all the teachers were awsome! they are there for teh kids and sandy and ms johnson are awsome they have devoted their lives to this school and the kids!

this school had some of my favorite teachers. the problem with this school was the uncontrollable students that the teachers don't know how to handle. i do love this school and sometimes wish i was still there.
We as parents feel let down by Eagle Peak Middle School. The negative impact the teaching staff has bestowed on our child no child should have to experience.
The challenges our daughter has faced are beyond the normal middle school experience but from two of her teachers in a classroom that alternates the two teachers every two weeks as a means of saving money. This class is one of the many examples of how she has been failed in getting what she deserves, an education!!!! We are torn, we fear she is going to be behind in the seventh grade, our only hope at this point is to find a school that employs teachers that are actually there to teacher as opposed to adult stand-ins simply pulling a paycheck on the behalf of my daughter and the many other students that are in this school. In hind sight it should have been no surprise as to why this school ranks so poorly in the Language Arts.
Your child is nothing more than a number at this school. My child was a GATE student at the start of this school year (07/08), and since coming to Eagle Peak I have watched him wilt into a struggling student who s self worth and esteem has been picked away by his teachers. Middle school comes during a stage when a child is looking to find their own identity and concept of self, however this school has had no positive out come in helping my child obtain these things by setting a positive example. It has been from my experience with the teaching staff that I say they hold no regard for parent questions and/or concerns. This school s teachers run it, the principle has proven to hold no accountability for her staff.
Lacks in leadership, solutions to complaints and concerns is to stick Band-Aids on them, as we know Band-Aid will only stick for a couple of days. Absolutely no following through with solutions, offers no follow up or feedback what so ever. Your child ends up suffering the consequence of your complaints or concerns. Best advice is if your child attends this school, never communicate with the staff or your child will be a target of unnecessary picking. Most importantly if you seek to be involved in your child s education stay clear of this school despite what it conveyed on their behalf any parent involvement is frowned upon
This school has given me the confidece to do well throughout my whole life!
Eagle Peak has been a school that has responded to my daughters needs. The Principal, Ms. Johnson, has taken an interest in her, as she does in all the students (amazingly she knows almost every childs name!) and this has helped us immensely. Each of the teachers has been quite approachable and knowledgeable for the most part. We did have problems with a new PE teacher not honoring a doctors restriction on her involvement in running, but he was only there one year and is now gone. The support staff in the front office are gems; the kids are comfortable with Sandy and she is much loved! I look forward to this year and am optimistic that the challenges of 8th grade will be met and the teachers will be responsive and understanding.
