Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree

A boy punched my daughter in the face and was allowed to stay in attendance.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Math teachers without a math degree??? They rely heavily on study island instead of instruction.




- a
Lack of control in classrooms. Physical bullying with no consequences. Terrible 6th and 7th math teachers. Fees like crazy for ridiculous items. Asked my student to buy 100 pencils on supply list.

I was a student at Corwin a few years ago, and the bullying is TERRIBLE. My friend and I were literally getting beaten with textbooks and stabbed with pencils, and even though we reported it directly to the principle (showing her our bruises and puncture wounds as proof) and she literally didn't do anything. Those students went completely unpunished. The academics are okay, but really nothing above average. There are several wonderful teachers at Corwin, but many others seem to play favorites. Above all, Corwin is really not a good choice for a middle school (if you are at all concerned with the safety of your child.) Even now as a senior in high school, I have heard many of the incoming freshman say bullying at Corwin is still out of control, with little to no interference from the staff to prevent it. Please don't go here.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Some of the teachers are great, but many others play favorites or have little control over their classroom.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
I remember having 50+ math problems, a history, science, and language worksheet, 5+ chapters of reading, and computer portfolio projects to do every single night. As a senior in high school, with AP and college courses, this would still be a lot to fit in one night.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

If the staff doesn't take any measures to prevent bullying, how can they be expected to promote these values?



- a
We chose this school for our gifted and talented child because of the rigorous course work and felt like it would be the ideal school for her to learn and grow. Instead, for TWO YEARS she was incessantly bullied by other students. We brought it to the teachers, counselors, even to the principle and yet the main aggressor was NEVER punished. We were flat out told by school staff, "Well, we aren't going to do anything about it this year. Maybe next year." It's appalling. It got so bad that we ended up having to put our child in outside counseling. Even the therapist said it was not a safe environment and told us we could take legal action if we chose to pursue that avenue. The main bully has a parent that works for the district and I assume that is why he was never punished, even when he took a pencil and stabbed another student. It's a shame too, the academics are good, but if you aren't part of the "ones that started the school" you aren't welcome and they let you know it with there rude behavior. I thought this was just our family that had experienced the lack of empathy for our bullied child, but no. I have talked to SEVERAL parents that had to remove their child from the school because the bullying is accepted and the entire staff just looks the other way. I would not recommend this school to anyone, it's not worth your child's safety.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
There is rigorous coursework and for us that was fine. Your student will have at least 2 hours of homework per night.

Develops character: Disagree

If you are not in the elite few, you will not be treated fairly. The children are made aware of it from day one by administration.
