As a former student of the school I have to say you do not want to send your child here. This is from first hand experience coming from a unbiased experience from within the school. First of all the education is moderate. Not extraordinary nor is it terrible it is plain average. What makes me score this school so low is because of the staff. Much of the staff is aggressive when handling the students and teaching is far too incentivized. Students for example who score a high score on a test or CSTs get a prize of some description that the ASB never follows through with. No prize no performance is what this school is looking for. What really makes this school bad is its community of students. Many of the students use racial and inappropriate slurs and the staff does not stop them. Fighting is not stopped unless the entire school population goes to the scene.

I am so glad my child does not attend this school anymore, I never delt with a school who's principle was never available and had their assistan handle everything for him. Now good luck if your child is in 8th grade and not doing to well ( meaning one class). The "8th grade supporter" will do nothing to support the child in succeeding instead all she will do is push for them to fail or wait until its to late for anything to be done, she also likes to fight with the children, telling them that "they will never amount to anything"! She also loves to feel superior, asking kids if they want to challenge her? What kind of counseler or school staff member does that???

Posted June 9, 2011

I am very impressed by this principal. There are strict attendance and tardiness policies. Academics and college readiness are emphasized, as well as being good citizens and having good health.

This school is awesome. Traweek does have a staff that cares. I know this first hand. great school.


Posted October 14, 2010

Traweek is led by an entire staff that ACTUALLY cares about the students. Everything is geared towards preparing them for thier futures. On top of that, they have the best physical fitness program to encourage ALL students to be motivated and active instead of parked in front of video games and PC's all day!

MR.Jeff Wilson Principal, his administration, and staff have taken a hands on approach to ensure that students at Traweek Intermediate School get a quality education, and that the kids have a positive experience while attending Traweek. They do this through student particapation, and just as important getting parents involved. Traweek has been named as a Distinguished School which is only done through dedication, hours of hard work, and a total committment from the Principal, administration, and staff. My son will be attending Covina High this year, and I know that the three years that he spent at Traweek has prepared him for high school. Traweek has been a great experience not only for my son but for my wife and I. I am proud to be able to call myself a Traweek parent.
