API keeps raising each year, school does a tremendous job acclimating English language learners. Positive learning environment and strong teachers had had a deep affect on students. School has many electives, and a solid staff of veteran teachers who really care about students with little turn over.

I think Sylvandale Middle School is a great place. The teacher is there to push us kids to work harder towards our goal. I think Sylvandale is the best school I have attended through my entire school career.

sylvandale Junior High School is a not environment for kids there are too much gang related but the teachers they care about the students i was a student in this school some students put down other students a lot i hope the students can change their self of their bulling of other kids.but the point is that less violence on every school not only this school my dream is that too to make the world more peaceful for other people but it wont happen because the children and teens don't care about the world today

I go to Sylvandale Middle School. It has a good environment. The teachers look forward to teaching their students in a fun, accurate way. The majority of the people there are kind.

I am a student attending sylvandale and in my opinion it's not so bad sure it's not like the richest. But the students and faculty try their best. Average is a boring word for decent, fair, acceptable. :)

One of the best schools I have ever attended. The teachers may not be the best and the school may not be the safest but it's full of people that are fun to hang out with including teachers.

Not the best school there ever is, but I've learned a lot of things here. There's not that many electives due to the budget cut & politics stuff. But, there are a group of teachers that really care about their students more than you can ever imagine.

I learned a lot from this school, and I enjoyed a lot from it. Although I have to say I was really disappointed with it after I graduated. Some of the teachers here just want to move fast and they don't take the time to see what's really going on with their students. This school is fun, but lacks educational stuff.

Parent involvment is encouraged, but the teachers don't have time to deal with anyone but the parents of the children in danger of flunking, so everyone else gets lost in the shuffle. The study programs are designed only to prevent children from flunking, and the extra-curricular programs have deteriorated drastically.
