There was an Open House today. The school is big, beautiful, and has a library. I might be going there next year. I hope the people are nice and there are no bullies. :]
I'm a sixth grader at Conrad. Conrad is a great school because the teachers are fun, the assignments are challenging, and the staff are friendly. Tech-ed is definitely my favorite subject, which Mr. Alexander teaches. And for the person who said Mr. Olesky has anger problems, Mr.Olesky doesn't. He's actually a nice teacher.
Conrad Schools of Science. I forgot to add that Great Schools needs to take the time to update its info as Conrad is now grades 6-12.
Conrad Schools of Science is a fantastic school. Our son had gone to a private school since kindergarten and we choiced in to Conrad and have been very impressed. His standardized test schools are high, his AP test scores are high. The teaching staff is great. They really look out for the best interests of the students and make sure they are at the appropriate level, in my son's case they moved him from CP in math and english to Honors and he will now be AP level. His other classes were already at Honors or AP level. The Principal is very organized and communicates well. We will sending our daughter to Conrad for 2012-13 school year, removing her from private school. We are excited and have stated to friends and family that the school is so good we would be willing to pay tuition to attend. I have seen a few negative reviews from several years ago, they are prior to Conrad becoming a full "choice", 2010-2011 was the first graduating senior class and the feeder pattern kids that were already in the school prior to that were allowed to stay at the school. So if you are looking for current reviews, disregard those.
My daughter is in 11th grade this year and will graduate from Conrad in 2013. We are proud that she has been a member of the Conrad family since the 6th grade. She has developed into a well-educated and well-rounded member of her school and community. We love Conrad!
My daughter loves the school and is getting a great education. She is currently in 8th grade and is excited to be going on to high school next year. We look forward to 4 more wonderful years at Conrad.
great school, excellent teachers great academic program, challenge the students with a large number of choices for classes. They need a stronger athletic program, but I don't consider that when rating the school.
This school is amazing! The teachers are very nice and cooperative. Also, there are no teachers with anger management troubles. Excellently, there are less misbehaving students. The reachers are always willing to clarify a lesson. Thankfully, our principal sends a biweekly phone call so we always know the details of the next two weeks. The classes are definitely challenging but understandable. I never plan to go to my feeder school!
I agree with the parent review dated January 3, 2011 on Mr. Olesky, the math teacher, regarding his behavior. My child also complained his class is really boring and does not understand what he is teaching. On top of this, his grading is really harsh and he does not try to help the students at all.
I opted to send my son to this school hoping that it would be a better school and help prepare him for college. It isn't anything better about this school than the feeder school he was in. The teachers are NOT top notch & the admin doesn't strictly enforce the dress code. Mr. Olesky the math teacher has anger managment problems and appears suicidal and crazy. He threw a marker at the smart board because the students didn't understand his teaching. Math teachers should be fun & interesting not dull and boring, not wonder they don't get it. Overall, if you are looking for better quality teaching, this is not the school. I am sending my child back to the feeder school as soon as possible.
i love conrad my son just loves it there so much i rate it 5 out of 5 it is a really good school.
I go there the sports are good but just the school it not so great and if yuor child is and iep student this place is a bad place to go
I was alway's told not to come to this school at all because of the kid's. It is a great school, the kid's are just as bad as the one's of my other school. The teacher's are very nice and help me out alot during class. I am alot happier at this school than my old school, and i think it is great that i can go here intill College, and have creds from high school. :)
I was new to the area 3 years ago, and I was warned NOT to let my children attend this school! I am glad that I went by my intuition and not by what I was told. My children thrived in this school. The teachers they had and most importantly Ms. Cochran and Ms. Johnson became like family to us all. What a wonderful school, and what a phenomenal group of people it has to run it!
Every time I was in for a conference, the teachers always had proffessional test scores on which they were basing their teaching. The administrators were always willing to listen and provide solutions too.
This school is great, I had wonderful teachers in my 8th grade year. (Mrs. Cooper, Mrs. Biss, Mr. Robinson). i had alot of guidence, my teachers prepared me for the DSTP as much as they could. Mrs. Cooper was my Algebra teacher helped me pass the test and I got a high school credit.
