This school is a good school if you are a good kid and get the right teachers if you are failing and disrespectful it's very hard.i was very disrespectful in 6th and did not complete my work and I got put in a program called 7th grade academy,which I thought was gonna be prison,but it was the greatest experience I think I could've gotten.they work at YOUR level based on your work from 6th and you move up.what seventh grade academy is is a program of handpicked kids who show up but are struggling and they help you with everything I saw a lot of improvement in myself I was wanting to show up and do my work and have a better attitude.plus,bullying is really not an option in this program everyone becomes a family and I have friends that I can really count on who don't think I'm stupid because I'm in the same thing they r (kinda like wearing the same uniform as someone and saying their outfit is stupid,it just makes no sense)but overall I give this school 1 and a half thumbs up because I don't really like some of the staff at the school but the ones in 7th grade academy are spectacular!

this is a failing school. Has a few "choice" teachers but the majority are horrible. Teachers have no lust for teaching. One teachers recently told my son her class would be better off without him in it and she hates him. Leave messages for principal with no return call. Its just a mess

The school is wonderful and the teachers are okay,I dislike how they don't have drama or choir.They use to have a small drama class,I was in that class,then the teacher stopped and did a writing class.they need to have more performing arts. They do have a band but this school needs a chior. Overall I love this school,I really love how asb makes fun activites for students,I'm going to my 3rd year at this school.

My daughter is in the gate program here and has a team of teachers, last name Riley, they are super great and actually make learning as fun as possible. Whoever wrote, "don't send your kids to ANY Lake Elsinore schools" obviously has no idea what they are talking about. My children have gone to school here since kindergarten and both have had really good experiences. This school is wonderful and i think that a big part of that is due to the awesome principal, Mrs. Gaither and the dedicated guidance team, especially Mr. Brookshire. Most middle schools are really inadequate, however, this is not one of them. And, I agree, they make lunchtime fun, they celebrate holidays and let the KIDS have fun. There is an exception here, the P.E. teachers are terrible. They truly do not like children and treat them like 2nd class citizens. I would love for them to have to be downtrodden the way they make the students feel.

don't send your kids to lake elsinore school district schools. send them to the academys. lake elsinore board, administrators and teachers are collecting paychecks...only. they really don't try to make a difference. don't move here, homeschool your kids or move to another district. it really is that bad!

As a parent, I have been very encouraged to hear my student's appreciation and enthusiasm about this school. He enjoys the activities and is being challenged in creative and academic thinking. I went to a dance when my child was first starting here and felt it was a safe and fun event.

Leadership Issues plagued this campus this past school year. There are a lot of rules and regulations but no one is making sure they are being followed. My experience as a parent started off negative at the beginning of the year. I attended a school dance to chaparone and was shocked and disguised with what was allowed to go on at that event. There was a lot of inappropriate behavior between the students and the male adults who were administrators and counselors stood there and watched the kids and did nothing to stop it. It was disturbing to me. The hallways are unsafe and mostly unsupervised during passing time. Parent pick up was a disaster and there was no supervision, except at the very beginning of the year. My son really liked a couple of his teachers but chaos in the classrooms was an issue in most of his classes.

Mrs. Walker is the best!! She and Bejarano/Tooley got our boys off to a great start in sixth grade. We have not been as thrilled with seventh, especially since they are using the exact same textbook for pre-algebra couse II, rather than promoting them to algebra, but that might be a district decision. Bullying was a problem, but was dealt with quickly by Mr. Dent.

I was skeptical at first to send my children to this school. But I think the teachers are doing an excellent job, and the school has been expanding their programs offered. The Rileys are a great team, and in general I am pleased with the administration and communication at the school.

I was very nervous about sending my son to this school as we heard many things about safety issues. He has attended since 2006 and we were pleasantly surprised. Steve Behar did a great job. Some of the great teachers include Mr and Mrs Riley and Mr Brown. There is a new principal for 2008-09, so we are crossing our fingers and hoping that she is able to continue Mr Behar's success. In general, we have been very pleased with DABMS.

Though Mr. Cleave and Ms. Tarranella were excellent teachers this school is in a state of emergency. There is no discipline for serious offenders and the kids and not protected or helped in a bullying situation. It is over crowded, underfunded, the counselor is scarce at best, and it is a complete mess.

I wanted to add also that the beginning band teacher was excellent and my daughter was excited about that program and was disappointed when we switched her to another middle school (Elsinore) which did not have a band program.

This is my son's first year and I'm not greatly pleased with the school. The counselors offer help and suggestions but they don't get back to you on anything. The front of the school is a mad house! It doesn't seem of any importance to have that taken care of. These children and the parents in their cars are all over the place! It doesn't seem as if anything is organized out front. The teachers offer their help as well but it seems that when your conversation with them is finished, that's it! Nothing goes from there. My son is having a difficult time turning homework and I'm having just as a difficult time getting the help or counseling he needs in order to improve. Also there are problems with the bees there all over the campus. Everywhere there are bees! Needs to be taken care of and it isn't.

We are new to this school. Cultural diversity might lack, but the Japanese exchange students provided nice international contacts for my daughter. My only disappointment is actually with the negative attitude coming from parents who don't help much, even at dances. Teachers stay after work because parents cannot help their own child with homework. I am happy with the staff.

In my experience with my daughter being in this school for three years I have found that the classes are so over crowded that the kids lack in individual time. I have not been happy with this school at all. Also they will not provide crossing gaurds in the morning so the kids have to cross a busy street without even a signal just a cross walk, I don't feel this is save for kids!

I've have children attending Brown middle school for the past 6 years. While most of the teachers are great, there are some that lack professional conduct, often demoralizing the children in front of their peers. It only takes a few bad experiences to turn a kid off to school, and its hard for a parent to turn that back around. More after school sports is needed. The schools band and wrestling is doing great. Traffic is still out of control and kids are not safe using the cross walk.
