Good, many cultural backgrounds, much social activity, well commended sports teams (cheerleading, baskeball, soccer, etc.)
From my childrens experience Sutter has one of the best academincs programs in town. My youngest went to a different Junior High however and his workload was aquivalent. Sutter seems to handpick the sutdents who attend where other schools seem to serve neighorhood kids. Hence why the scores are better. Parking and traffic are dismissal, and I also object to playing hip hop music at lunch period! I like the other parent dont allow my kids to listen to this type of music ever!
Great academics and sports programs. I think the kids love school at Sutter because the teachers are great and really relate well to the kids. I also think the principal shows a lot of creativity by encouraging so many extra cirricular activities and rewarding the kids with school dances and music at lunch. Despite being such a large and diverse student population, there does not appear to be discipline problems. I think they really pay attention to the kids and try to make the campus a fun place to be for learning.
As an educator and a parent, I would not hesistate to suggest that a child attend Sutter Middle school. The faculty is excellent, caring and patient. Their dedication is evident in not only student work, but in the students. The school offers numerous programs for students including sports, music, art, and leadership. Parents are friendly and work collaboratively to support the school, and students. Mr. Purcell and the teachers of Sutter are among the best that Sac. City Unified School District has to offer. This is why Sutter is academically heads and shoulders above the rest.
I have found the principal, Mr. Purcell to be extremely approachable and available. His day begins long before the students show up and he is there long after they go home. I wish he could be cloned. This is a principal who cares about his school and his students! If your child is struggling, as mine has on occassion, call the teacher. I have found all the teachers to be responsive and more than willing to meet and discuss ways to improve my childs grades. And, I might add that Mr. Purcell has attended these meetings. I wish that Sutter went through 12th grade. I have met several former Sutter students and ALL have said that they were more than prepared for High School. My child travels 30 miles round trip to attend this wonderful school!
