I was a student there and it's horrible!!! The teachers treated us like elementary students punishing the class because of one person, not making the students eat fruits and vegetables, most of my friends couldn't eat because they had no money! The p.e. exercises were bad because the teachers don't watch you. Teachers don't know how to stay calm and Louie doesn't know how to keep his hands to himself. I recommend to go to anyother school then this one.
Everyone rating 1 star are parents and are not in Lee. Ive see many things some parents are saying here... Someone said Lee pushes 7th graders to 8th grade if they fail... My friend got 3 F and he was in 7th for another year... another thing is that the school has improved in the CST by +25 points every year since 2006. One more thing is that in Lee they have 3 rooms of special education. and lastly LEE IS THE BEST SCHOOL.... AND PARENTS WHO DONT LIKE THIS SCHOOL IS BECAUSE THEY DONT ATTEND TO THE SCHOOL :)
I am shocked to see that Lee receives as high a reating as it does. The school teachs at a sub-standard level. The lack creativity in their methos. For students that have learning challenges they place them in resource classes that is sapposed to improve their performance. They get extra funding for this however, the school fails to improve the students abilities and in my opinion just warhouses them doing dummied down work repetitively. They school is not help to measurable goals. Usually the teachers and administration blames the child for failing instead of taking responsibility to realy connect with this child and get them excited about learning. The adiministration is at fault for not taking the initiative to imporve and create more effective methods of learning. Lee is not about the students but about the politics, money and protecting the current regeim. Lee contributes to high drop out rates.
this school is a freaking joke. Getting an A in this school is perhaps the equivalent of getting a C somewhere else. Makes your kid think that their doing great when in reality, once they hit the real world, they'll get a good pounding with actual competitive students.
It is a very cool school. I enjoy going every single day. Our school is ran by a easy to talk to smart and very helpful principle who attends all school functions Mr. Garth Lewis. And our vice principal Ms. Gouphner. This school is disiplend very fairly and to keep fights from happening for extra saftey we have two ver kind security gaurds, who are loved by the students. There is Martha who is very easy to find, since she is always in one of her croshayed items. And there is Louie who is always being a friend to our students in a tough way. We love our dances since we have the best of fun. I will love this school for all eternity a loving student.
The academics and fair treatment of students is so poor at this school I was forced to place my son in a private school. They haven't a clue as to how to teach a child with a different learning style that means the teachers may have to get creative. If you don't fit into their mold you are not going to do well. Especially when you are being taught by some of the teaching staff that obviously favor the students that are of the same ethnicity by using terms of endearment in their native language....this is, in my opinion, is damaging and hurtful to the other students in the class who are made to feel less important. Wake up Woodland school administrators....aren't you ashamed of the ratings your schools are receiving?
This is a school that deeply cares about the children and their safety at school. Unfortunately, that is not weighted against academic excellence in my opinion. There is a lot of busy work and loss of time, in my opinion. There seems to be a sense of hopelessness in the staff that trickels down.
Love the teachers but the disciplinary system is slightly contorted to face the side of the administration
Great school! We have had three of our kids at this shcool. Awesome teachers, great staff, and good students. Highly recommend it to all.
I am very disappointed in the public schools here in Woodland and after having my 3rd son in Lee Jr. High...we are now going to be homeschooling our youngest son and our 3rd grade daughter! I found out last year that if you have a 7th grader who fails every class, that child will still be pushed onto 8th grade!! Even at the request of a parent for that child to repeat 7th grade! I don't understand pushing our children on when they haven't been able to succeed! Lee completely let our child down! Completely! No child left behind?? Ha! They've got that right....we'll homeschool our children and do a much better job that any public school in this state!
We are very unhappy with Lee's performance! Our children went from being children excited about learning to children that despised school! Myself, along with 2 other families are now going to be pulling our kids out of the Woodland Public schools to now homeschool them. This has been a real disappointment :(
Lee Junior High School has put great effort into improving their academic performance over the past several years. Their efforts have paid off in greater parent involvement, improved academics, and overall student morale. Thank you for your efforts and congradulations on a job well done.
