Sutter has so many students, I feared my daughter might get lost in the shuffle. But she really wanted to go here, because her friends were going. We've been very pleased with her academic success. There are lots of options of things to try (she was thrilled with what she learned in woodshop!). The principal and vice principal are easy to contact and concerned about the quality of the school. Teachers are concerned and easy to talk to, as well as highly competent. Parent involvement is high. In fact, every parent of a former student that I talked to was very positive in their reviews. We're looking forward to another great year.
As we are approaching the end of 7th grade at Sutter Middle School, I have been humbled by the dedication of the teachers and administration. I expected that a school of this size would treat its students like a number and I have been so delighted to find the opposite is true. Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his first year at Sutter and stated today that although there's been a fair bit of homework, he feels the school is preparing him well for high school and his future.
I loved this school always nice and a special kind of way that would feel like a home in sutter middle I'm a proud miner and always recommend Sutter. The teachers were always helpful, and kind to help you with the homework what you don't understand or help with some of the notes you missed in class, help with your problems that your having with your friend,anything their always their for you. " Once A Miner, Always A Miner" and a proud one.

Sutter Middle School located in Sacramento is a great school for kids with big brains. Socially the school is good and my son enjoyed it completely. My daughter is currently attending and she loves it too. I just wish they could have kept the Spanish teacher... from what I hear he was good.
I am a seventh grader too and I do think many of the students aren't too nice. But the teachers there are so helpful and dedicated to their job. I truly believe they want their students to succeed. I am in the SAS honor classes which has great teachers and some awesome students. There are bullies in every school, and Sutter is no exception to that. But I've found some genuine people there who want me to do my best all year long at Sutter.
This school isn't any better or worse than Mitchell Middle School. We put our daughter in this school after a rough sixth grade at Mitchell, she did worse than at Mitchell for 7th grade. We then switched back to Mitchell. I believe that the school isn't the problem, it's the student. If the student wants to succeed, it will happen anywhere. There isn't anything special about Sutter that doesn't happen at Mitchell.
I am a seventh grader and I just started here at Sutter. I love that it so BIG. That doesn't necessarily mean everyone on is nice, but if someone is mean you report it and find some new friends. I came from a small elementary school where there was BULLYING. All of the kids from there went to Sutter but I have no classes with them and found so many other great friends. Everyday i recognize someone that I hadn't seen for a really long time. (from soccer, volleyball, baseball, swimming, ect.) Now for academics. I love all of my teachers. I am in G.A.T.E. and I am challenged a majority of the time. I have woodshop for my elective and it is so much FUN! I am also excited to TA (teacher assistant) next year. My class teachers asked for supply donations that ranged from $3-$20 but understood if you couldn't afford it. Also Mr. Rodriguez and Mrs. Tahara-Martin are a little intimidating, but I have become great friends with both of them. My mom, dad, and I are in PTSO (parent teacher student association.) My brother, who is an eight grader goes here, too and he loves it. Sutter has lot of SPIRIT and SMARTS. Also at lunch there is music and it's a nice break after four periods. GO MINERS!
I am a parent of a current 7th grader and my older daughter was at Sutter last year for 8th grade. They both are having and had wonderful experiences at Sutter. I can't say enough about the fantastic teachers at this school. The teachers take extra time to offer tutoring during their lunch time or after school. They are caring and keep the parents updated on Zangle. The find the teachers at Sutter to be really exceptional. I know that now since my older daughter has moved on to high school, & I don't get the same kind of current feedback like I did from the Sutter teachers, especially with posting their grades on Zangle or on their class website.
My son is in 7th grade at this school. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it is! There is a lot of school spirit, and PTSO is outstanding. Mr. Rodriguez and the office staff are fantastic. I'm not certain why any parent cannot contact the teachers, the emails are on Zangle, the school website, and maybe classjump.I really love using Zangle to keep up with my son's progress. I saw a B go down to a D one day and IMMEDIATELY emailed the teacher. I received a response right away, and always have!! The teachers are always wonderful about helping if my son or I ask. I hope all parents are using Zangle!
I've never encountered racism and the school is absolutely wonderful. You would be doing your child a favor by sending then to Sutter.
this school is terrible. racism still exsists , and u find that there is so many snobby kids. It is a big popularity contest and youll be better off sending them some where else
Great school. Best teacher in the state (Jody Cooperman). I came form a catholic school and found compassion, love, learning and direction. I will always remember the welcoming Sutter community as a safe place in a hostile world. From the office people to the classroom it is a total atmosphere of unconditional love. It is a shame I had to leave my church to find it.
Excellent teachers! Great Gate Program!Challenging. Teachers really want the children to suceed!
This is an excellent school!! My daughter will enter her second year at Sutter. As for the remark below..it is not the school's job to raise your child-you need to do that at home. I am glad that they are strict with discipline at this school. Excellent learning environment.
easy to suspend for punishment-appears they want kids out of the way instead of figuring problem - "OUT OF SIGHT - OUT OF MIND" theory!
My son went to this school two years ago and want my daughter to go here next year....great great school for our kids
best school ever!!!! i will hate to leave next year... :-[ but i am really enjoying it you make a ton of new freinds and get a great education... :-]
i am currently attending this school. it has a great academic program but the students should focus more on academics than social status and popularity. overall, the school is great and im so sad that next year i have to go to high school. ;(
This school...I graduated from this school last year and I can't say enough about it. It's a great school with great teachers and great students. This school has a wonderful principal and vice principal [though I heard they got a new v.p.]. The staff is very warm and welcoming. I know anyone who attends this school will leave with graditude in their hearts - I promise that.
