This school was absolutely terrible for me. I have ran into a bunch of bullying issues, and the counselor and teachers have done nothing about it. Even though the teachers were very kind and helpful I hated everyday I went there. I have been to six different schools throughout my entire education and that one school was the worst by far.

As a parent I am very discouraged with Standley. The teachers do not return emails. The communications between the VP and counselor leave a lot to be desired. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. I wish I would have pulled my child in December and sent them to another school. The school is a joke and a total waste of time. The only thing they care about is the paycheck... Think long and hard before sending your child here!

This school has very competent teachers and a high parent involvement. The focus is not only how students do well but assisting and guiding them to help them reach those goals.

I have to chuckle at the reviews. Most if not all of the teachers are quite accessible. Parents have good accessibility to both school staff and the district office. Principal Lyon has worked hard to reduce campus student population to a reasonable "by design" size over the last several years. Both of our children have attended Standley. Both children have developed great friends as well as solid academic relationships with instructors.

Stanley uses the the GATE b cluster approach which means it is the luck of the draw if your student will get a GATE class. 25% of all classes are GATE students. (9 out of 36) The administration states that they are all GATE classes but designates only some classes GATE Cluster. Seminar is still tracked together so that is still a good program and where all the high reviews come from. The overall test scores are 4 out of 10 for like student population. They administration is CLOSED to students changing classes to give them a better teacher for their learning.

I AM A STUDENT OF THIS SCHOOL. And I would like to say that this school has its ups and downs. It is culturally diverse and has almost no bullying issues but, the principal is horribly incompetent, some teachers have no control over classes and there is very little teacher-parent communication. The only way my parents can quickly access my grades is through a website only introduced this year. And the staff is mostly burnt out. I often feel depressed when I leave school because the teachers have no control over classes and I can't recieve the full lesson nor can I fully understand it. I would not recommend this school to parents who want their children to truly strive in school.

WE feel a desperate need to get out of this school! Its such a scary feeling to know our son goes here. His English teacher didn't assign a book to read until December. Then she assigned a Christian-based book. I read a few paragraphs and realized, besides the [small] non-secular problem, that this is not well-written literature. If he emulates this, he will be writing long 1 sentence paragraphs...! Since the 8th grade testing is not being done this year, I think the English teacher is slacking, a lot.

Standley middle school is a horrible school. The education is ok but not very good. The teachers are fine but only a few are good or extraordinary. It's a very boring school and they have made some unnecesary changes in the past year. They need to make a better administration. The principal is not very good and quite annoying. The vice principal, Mr. Pearson, is to concerned And makes false accusations. However the new vice principal, Mr. Lee, is awesome. He is verry friendly and makes sure you are on a good path. If I ever had any problems I would go to him. These are the reasons I'm rating it one star. The only good part of the school is Mr. Lee.

I agree with some of the other reviews about poor administration. My child is in eighth grade and throughout all three years they have not managed to determine the number of kids they will have enrolled come fall. This results in a constant change of schedules, teachers coming and going, and a "back to school night" that doesn't occur until the end of October. I spent many hours volunteering at my child's elementary school and enjoyed it immensely. Due to poor administration the principal has managed to disenchant the parents to the point where we don't want to volunteer. They seem more concerned with dress code violations and squashing any individuality at the school that education quality. Stanley Middle School is the weak link in an otherwise wonderful UC school experience. A new principal is desperately needed here.

My daughter just started the 7th grade here. In comparisons to her previous school, this place is hands down a breath of fresh air! It feels so good to see my daughter happy to go to school. Bullying was a major problem in her old school and here there is none, at least not for my daughter. The school is culturally diverse which I think is a good thing. What I don't like is that they have changed her schedule numerous times, the teachers do not grade my daughters work...they only check that she did the assignment but she gets zero feedback. I think this can hurt her in the long run especially during tests. The tardy policy is very strict but I suppose that is a good thing. Overall the school is good but I see room for improvement.

41 kids in a classroom? Really?? This same thing happened last year. Kids had to run to class to get a seat. Not a good seat. A seat. Standley's so called leadership solved the problem by issuing all new schedules to every student several MONTHS into the school year. You know, with all the planning days, half days, conference days, vacation days, and a three month summer, I think the administration just learns to duck it's responsibilities. In the end, the only truth is the god given right to be lazy and ineffective.

Poor management and administration. This school could not get all the students in their classes on the first day of the school. Many students could not get their schedules on time. Both Parents and students had to wait hours just to get their schedules. Parents and students were deeply disappointed by the school due to poor management by the school.

My cousins say this used to be an awesome school. I go there, this is not what it is now. We call the principal Tyrant Lyon, cuz that is her. This principal has taken away the fun, being with your b.f.f.'s, Valentines Day, Halloween, Boomers & Dances. She doesn't understand us or like us. She took everyone's valentines stuff away and put it in her office. She HATES us!

From conversations with other students that go to Standley it seems as if the only good part about this school is the GATE/seminar program. I am in it and so far it's been great for me. The teachers have helped me very much throughout the years. If your son or daughter doesn't make the GATE/Seminar program, although, I advise you not to send your son/daughter here because it seems like the non-GATE students have a bad time dealing with the teachers and feel like they're surrounded in an uncomfortable environment.

An exceptionally dysfunctional school. The principal is not competent and not trustworthy. I had a private conversation with the principal criticizing a staff member and the staff member then repeated the conversation to me verbatim. Teacher quality is highly variable. Teachers have 4 classes/day out of 6 and a significant population of teachers are burnt out. Many are not specialists in their subject (e.g. teachers with an English degree teaching science). Struggling kids are neglected and fail. When I met with teachers, they knew my child was having problems completing or understanding the classwork, but never relayed the information. Even during scheduled parent-teacher conference weeks when these are supposed to rectify this, rarely do teachers contact parents. They often do not show up for their tutoring time or alert students when they have meetings during their tutoring time, especially mornings. Some teachers have very poor websites and the principal or VPs blame the teachers union rules for being unable to make the teachers fix or learn how to do so. Kids must wear their IDs around their necks all the time, a misguided time wasting rule instead of focusing on teaching.

My school is Standley, and i am a student. I think there are alot of things wrong with this school and i wish the teachers would actually listen to the students suggestions. Yes, there is a comment box, but not one of those serious comments actually become something that could change any single part in Standley. The staff doesn't listen. I, as a member of the expansive student body, am only asking to be heard. i also would like SOMEONE to realize that the people that are being sent to the office and given referalls aren't being changed by it. All our school does is give up and expel them while they should be thinking of ways(other than Sea-hawk Sessions, which DOES NOT WORK, people are making the good decisions of their own accord) to help the students make the right decisions and not choose to do things that don't help, just hurt. That is what i would like to say about my school which allegedly was given a 9 out of 10 on the GreatSchools rating. -submitted by a student

So it seems most parents hate or love Stanley......at any school one will have issues. I will not tell you about the positive but what I will tell you is why people see the native & this may explain all the one star ratings. One parent writes of a known bully who the principal allowed to read the graduation speech. This parent is only venting and failed to include that their daughter was suspended supported by school cameras. Further the principal does not chose the speech writer & reader but a panel of 7 teacher (none of which are the principal). The speech reader this yr is loved by the majority of her piers and weighs in at 120lb 5 feet and labeling an outstanding person a bully is sad. Parents blame everyone for their failures when they have no clue and seems that they are manipulated by these little ones. Math is difficult but in any good HS it is harder. We had to use tutoring to get our star reader to pass math.

I used to go to this school when it was still Jr. High and it was a great school back then, so, i figured if I put my daughter here, she would have somewhat of the same experience...well, boy was I mistaken. My daughter struggles with school and right away the teachers just said she was lazy and was seen as a target. I asked for an IEP test and was told I needed to talk to my doctor??..Teachers here don't know how to talk to the kids, or parents, yet they expect respect and they do not lead by example. The staff there doesn't know how to deal with certain issues. Just because this school is in La Jolla, doesn't mean it's a good school. They were also under review not too long ago...and it was for a reason. I am proud and relieved to say that my daughter will NOT be attending this school next year. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT bring your children here.

I understand that middle school can be a difficult time for kids and a challenge for educators. But the administration at this school is the epitomy of apathy. The Principal refuses to address important issue like bullying and other bad behavior to the point that it takes threats of legal action for her to do her job. We were appauled to learn recently that a known bully was given the honor of making a speech at the 8th grade promotion ceremony next week, because she won a speech writing contest. Ms. Lyons promotes bad behavior and than grandstands when she finally takes action to advise parents about the bullying that is taking place on her campus that she has been told about for months. I would say this is a pathetic display of leadership. This has been the worst 3 years of my daughters life and we are so grateful that its almost over. I would advise you don't walk away from sending your child to Standley Middle School, run as fast and as far as you can.

A negative and disorganized school that performs well below expectations. Staff are not racist but can be rude, condescending and obstructive with any parent. Parents volunteers who were active in elementary school often stop helping out when they start to feel their children are treated unfairly. The feeder elementary and high schools are high performing yet Standley was classed as 'failing' for three years and barely escaped this year - last test scores are still far short and NOT 'out of this world'. Professional behavior, basic skills and teaching effort in almost 1/3 of the staff is lacking. I have seen staff responsible for student injuries, bring replica weapons into school, blatant failures to grade or demonstrate any records of student work, failures to show up for parent meetings.. If this were your child's behavior it would soon be a suspension or worse but the Principal simply refuses to acknowledge problems. A letter yesterday detailed how graduating 8th graders with low academic or citizenship scores will be prohibited from attending the graduation ceremony. All these kids should be celebrated but the final memory of Standley will be negativity and discrimination.

The way math is taught in this school (district?) is the most convoluted mess I have ever seen. I can not even put into words how both my child and myself have come to HATE this subject now. I realize that once summer starts I will be entirely reteaching this whole subject to my child in an orderly and logical progression using workbooks as it seems this subject at the school is all over the place and hardly uses the book on most occasions. To many handouts without answers and not enough intervention to determine exactly how well a student is doing at understanding the material, whatever that my be at times. Makes me question if I should send another child to this school or just relocate instead.

This school has a Three Strike & You re Out rule.(A punishment program regarding unfinished homework assignments) and the staff are forcing students (who did not complete and/or turn in a homework assignment or packet) to make a phone call home (while school is in session) and read (from a script written by the school staff) a VERY HUMILIATING speech to their parents; (in short) telling them how sorry they are for letting them down & not living up to their standards and expectations, & so on. By the third (strike) time not completing a homework assignment, the student not only has to make the (humiliating speech) call home, they also must have a meeting with the school s VP 5 days of lunch detention or one day of Wednesday school. This happens even if the student has been out sick and has quite a bit of homework to catch up on. I m sorry but, What s Up !! Is this practice of student humiliation REALLY necessary; I think NOT ??!! But then again . . . Who am I to question this school s disciplinary actions; I m just another parent; right ?!

Standley Middle School is by far the worst school I have ever been to. The school is very poor and unorganized. They say that it is not their fault they are poor but because the funding is bad. However, they spend their money very poorly spending money on textbooks and other things that are almost never used throughout the year. The schedules are also very unorganized, and are always wrong and have to be changed 2 or 3 times. The staff and teachers also fail at controlling the kids and most of them are very racist and constantly say inappropriate things. The school is very unsanitary, as there is gum all over the floor, under the desks, and even under the chairs. The principal does not even accept parents' requests for changing their kids' classes. The cafeteria lunch menu is also poorly designed because they are limited to each item to often vegetarians starve. I went to Standley for an unfortunate 3 years. Take my advice and do NOT go to Standley.

Academics at this school score badly relative to the UCcluster elementary and high schools and are also poor relative to comparable student populations in the SD District. Science is only given as an option for 1/3year in 6th grade, so less important than PE, Social Studies.. Lunch and external activities are minimal. Many teachers seem incapable of managing their web materials or email. The main school focus appears to be tracking petty disciplinary issues. Management and planning is poor - now even worse then the previous Principal - this year 2/6 grading periods were almost done (Thanksgiving!) before the back-to-school night explaining class expectations was even held. Office staff typically ignore you and one counselor is notoriously unresponsive. There are good reasons many UC cluster parents skip the kids out from Standley for the middle school years and come back for UC High later.

If I understand the official mail I just received, this school is in year 2 of an Improvement Program after having failed to achieve proper scores in basic standardized testing for the No Child Left Behind act. Whether this reflects poorly on the school itself or suggests GreatSchools.org is a scam for ranking it a 9, something is misaligned with all these stats and ratings. The very scary thing about this San Diego Unified School District letter, by the way, is encouragement to apply to other schools with no cost bussing for my son.

Standley Middle School is a very good school that does it's best to serve all students. The GATE classes are offered in English and Social Studies for each of the three grades (6th, 7th and 8th). For math, all students are tested and placed based on the test results. All other classes are taught by capable and better than capable teachers and consist of a mix of all students. Students have excellent elective choices in addition to the outstanding band/orchestra options. Anyone who thinks the teachers and staff are only interested in GATE students has not spent any time at the school or talked to any of the dedicated teachers and staff. These are people who have tirelessly been doing more with less for years and will likely continue to do given the current budget outlook. How many of us would be willing to do the job they do under current conditions? In the two and a half years that she has been at the school, Principal Lyon has changed the culture dramatically. According to my child, bullying is at an all-time low. Her consistent zero-tolerance position has had a pervasive effect. I am looking forward to having my next child start there in the Fall.

This school only offers good resources (math classes, etc.) to GATE children. If your not in GATE than sorry but your going to basically learn the same stuff from 6th to 8th grade. So of course some comments (made by GATE kids) are thrilled with the school. They're actually LEARNING! There are also 43 ratings made by teacher/staff members ,which they all gave 5 stars, no surprise they all want to keep their jobs. Why don't they get a degree and start teaching! Why do kids come to school if their no getting anything out of it! It is a waste of everybody's time and when they get to high school it's gonna be a heck of a lot harder. GOOOOD LUCK!

I just finished my first year at Standley, and I am very pleased with how the year went. The teachers are outstanding: challenging but offer lots of help when you need it. I was in the GATE program and learned a lot throughout the year. Highlights were English, in which I learned many things and also did nice projects. I also enjoyed having PE every day. The coaches were supportive and challenged you to always push harder, but never forced you to do anything completely against your abilities. I made a lot of new friends, although the behavior of some kids could be better. I am overall very happy with my first year at Standley and can't wait to start again!

I've been to this school for all three years and I have definitely learned a lot. The Seminar, Cluster, and GATE programs are the best opportunities. The advanced classes were tough, but they really shaped the students for high school. The teachers open up time in their schedules for before and after school tutoring. The teachers are very helpful in all of the subjects. Standley has an outstanding Band and Orchestra program. We play very good music and get to play in competitions and special parks, like Disney Land and Six Flags Magic Mountain.

This is my daughters last year at Standley and we couldn't be happier with the seminar program she has been fortunate enough to benefit from. The teachers are exceptional, varied and all bring something to the table at about the right time. The homework load is hefty but seldom busy work. The kids that are attracted to this program are amazing. No school is perfect nor are teachers but I think Standley has the best of the best as far as seminar teachers go, not to mention their music program which compares to none. The P.E. teachers are great as well. Science is weak with the exception of Mr Pearson, he is in a league of his own. Overall, great seminar experience!!!

My dtr is starting her 3rd year at Standley. I struggled all last year to communicate with her teachers and one of the two counselors at the school, with little effect. I think the teachers are, by and large, excellent and quite committed but the school culture is so very traditional. A small group of very vocal parents seem to be the only input that the administration seeks, resulting in highly performing kids receiving the bulk of the attention and resources at the school. If your child doesn't test well into the GATE program, forget any individual or specialized instruction and prepare for 'teaching to the test. Prepare to provide your own enrichment program at home.

Could not be happier with the overall program at Standley. Have one child fully prepared to move on to high school after three years at Standley. Second child has completed one year and is very happy and doing well. Principal Higa is highly visible, always out and about on campus speaking with parents and students. He has intitiated activities during the lunch break to keep students from getting into mischief. Only dislike would be the overly competative parents and parents who do not hold their children to the school rules (uniforms).

If you don't have a child who is in the GATE program, you are denied access to the GATE classes, which is not true at many other schools. It is a very frustrating experience for parents who have high achieving or highly motivately children. Or for any parent who would like to see their child getting the best education possible. They are denied access to the very classes that they need. It tends to perpetuate elistist attitudes. The music program is excellent.

I am new to the school (6-th grade) and my child has been enjoying it very much so far. He has gotten a new English teacher for the cluster program and likes her although I am unsure about it as it is only 3 weeks into school year.Apparently 2 other male teachers for GATE English are excellent.Math is also great as it offers different levels to accomodate higher and lower achieving students. I don't like uniform policy but I am supporting it as long as school does something about not allowing baggy pants and shirts up to mid thighs on campus.Uniform policy is definitelly too lax and defeats it's own purpose.

My daughter attended Montessori school for 9 years before starting Standley in 7Th grade. I was unsure if she would be challenged academically and have been surprised at how challenging the work is in Math, Science, English and History.The girls basketball team at Standley has kept her busy after school with practice 3 days a week and games on Sunday. The band program is very good which allows her to continue her music appreciation. The parent group has been very active throughout the year. We think Standley is top notch.

My son has completed his 2nd. week of 6th grade and he loves it because he is engaged by all his teachers at Standley. This school has brought out the best in him and he wants to do well here. This school posts homework on their website which is very important. He is so happy and is learning so much. Plus the teachers have a sense of humor that delights the children. Principal Higo is a very dedicated, sensitive and is extremely polite. He treats students and everyone with respect and I appreciate that so does my son. Melissa Barling

This is not a good place to send your children for a proper education. (Minority students)

Although my son received B grades at Standley I felt that there should be more homework. Additionally, teacher and vice principal contact was very difficult in ascertaining academic and behavior of my son. Sports are non-existent at Standley although the music and art programs were excellents

Standley is part of an involved community where the parents and teachers partner towards a common goal of quality education at the public school level. For example, the music program at Standley is top notch. The Standley advanced band has been the recipient of numerous awards. This would not be possible without the involvement of the community, teachers and parents.

I'm quite content regarding the decision I made to enroll my daughter at Standley. The partnerships I've established with her teachers assists me to keep the best interest of her education as a focal point.

My daughter has tried to meet with her counsler twice in three years, over problems with her class schedule or not being able to understand her math teacher. The Counsler and Vice Principal were not interested in helping her resolve any of her concerns, very upsetting when they stress to the kids to try and handle their problems themselves and be responsible. Seems like they rather face the children and use scare tatics then face the parents and explain themselves. The Vice Prinipal was very protective of the teachers and and had no concern for the studen, even though my child has carried a 4.0GPA for two years at the school.

I like the school, however, I never receive a return phone call when I have a concern. Perhaps someone could tell me the secret to communicating with these people.

Standley is an awesome school. I have enjoyed sending my daughter there for her 6th & 7th grade year, and I know her 8th grade year will be as wonderful. The leadership, teachers and coaches have shown exceptional concern for my childs educations. I highly recommend this school, I know it will help with my child's higher education.
