Wow this year the teachers are really strict I think they have to be really strict to the students this year to focuse better and learn more the consequences are way better.
I love this school my daughter comes home and says "i love my school I love the rules helps me focus better" and ever since she went she hasn't complained she is very excited everday to go to school she says its a good school I do believe her iI looked at the rules and this year I can tell they are going to be successful goes to a D school to B or better hopefully more kids join McLane
Best school ever my son can finally focus more because of the rules gos bless this school.
I have to agree with the post from August. My daughter is also in the 6th grade @ McLane. Every morning when she is getting ready for school, she gets sick. I really think it's her nerves. Back when i was in Middle School, there wasn't much bullying to worry about, nor was there so much crime. I think many kids are afraid to go to school nowadays....to the point it's making them ill. My daughter has asked me several time to be home schooled, but her dad & I work, so we can't do it. I want her to love school !
McLane is a school on the move. An emphasis on high expectations has begun to transform this school into a middle school to be proud of. Great work by the principal and staff in creating an environment of respect and achievement.
I'm so afraid for my son in this school. He has been nervous since he started in the 6th grade. Don't like this school kids be bullied a lot. And scare for my son is not good when you don't have another choice of school when this is the school you have assign. need other options
since my kid start going to McLane he's behavior change he's attitude change is like I have another boy at my house. The teachers at McLane are not professional...McLane is the worse school
no communication between school staff and parents, also teacher are very disrespectful in front of your child. Teachers curse and bring their boyfriends with them
My son just completed 6th grade in the Robotics Academy at Mclane. I can't say enough good things about the teachers in the robotics program and the standards they set for their students. The rest of the school, however, is in complete chaos. There are 200 students in each P.E. class and 4 teachers. When my son was grabbed by the throat and slammed into a wall 1 of the coaches told him that if he didn't know the name of the person responsible there was nothing the coach could do. This was two weeks into 6th grade. Later in the year my son witnessed a massive food fight in the cafeteria that resulted in the suspension of 40 students. Worst of all was the day my son came to me and said he had seen one of his female classmates surrounded by a group of boys who proceeded to touch her inappropriately. This was in an overcrowded elective classroom, when he asked her why she didn't tell the teacher she told him that it was a daily occurrence and wouldn't stop. not know his attacker's name the coach couldn't help him. That was two weeks into sixth grade. Later in the year he witnessed a huge food fight in the cafeteria that resulted in the suspension of 40 students. Worst of a
I just graduated there and here is a helpful hint -never take your kids there Please It's horrible
I worked at this school approx. 5 years ago. It was horrible. The students bullied other students and also teachers! I never had a student theaten me before. When I brought it up to administration they almost laughed in my face. I've been teaching for 12 years and I like to run a "tight ship" when it comes to discipline but when administration doesn't back teachers up, teachers really have no power. I truly feel bad for the students who want to learn and for all teachers that teach there! I have moved on to teach at a great school now and I beleive I am successful! I still tell my horror stories of this awful school and probably will until I'm 90!
Teachers don't care about the students. My daughter was a student from 6 to 8 grade and the homework's were very minimal and almost none at all. school needs improvement starting with some teachers. Her performance in elementary school was more demanding than McLane. school.
boiiiiii?!?!?!?! did yall see dat pepper sprayyy thangg?!?!?! Uhhhhh, no duh i aint goin here. In dat skool, its survival to da fitte$$$!
I just transferred from private school.. I was told how bad this school was, but.. Honestly, its a better school than Imannuel. Im in 7th grade and today was my first day, and I loved it ! the kids were nice and helpful.. At Imannuel it was hard to make friends because it was so small so if one girl didn't like you, the other 6 didn't.. I think it depends on the student.. but i felt at home, and all the nerves went away, yes all schools have flaws, but for as big as this school is, its pretty good. I don't plan on leaving :) and i look forward to tomorrow :)
this sckool is awsom, techrs dont do anystuf and kids finna fade all the time, if u want fun then com here
I moved to Florida from Mississippi about 4 months ago. I'm a student, in 8th grade, and I love McLane. Yes, there are fights about every week, and some students are rude and disrespectful. But, my teachers are very helpful, and I've gotten better grades here than I did at my old school. The principals are not very strict, and they know how to handle every situation. The school may seem bad from the outside, but it really isn't. I've made some good friends here, and I don't plan on leaving anytime soon.
This review is intended for the STEM Robotics Institute only. I have no real experience with the AVID program, or the school itself, outside of this program. The STEM Robotics program is a school within a school. The program is second to none. The Robotics program is a full 3 years, not one or two semesters as in other schools. McLane fields teams that compete in Robotics competitions locally, state-wide, regionally, nationally and internationally. McLane's Robotics teams have taken 1st place at the National Robotics Championships, and 3rd place at the World Robotics Championships, the past 2 years in a row. That should tell you something about how good the program is. Yet many locals don't even know the program exists. If you're a student in this program, you take all of your classes with other students in the program. My son says he has seen some minor violence at the school, but nothing of any real import. Kids will be kids, and even the best schools can't eliminate bullying, or altercations completely. I wish some of the teachers would do a better job of keeping EDLINE up to date. I can't fix something in my childs progress, if I don't know there's a problem.
My son and daughter were just enrolled in this school we moved here from Strongsville OH and this school and it's staff are horrible it needs to be shut down. The princaple prejudice and my daughter had her phone stolen out of her book bag and when I went in for a meeting he threw me out of the office and told me his job is not to protect the children he is just the principle and then called the sheriff to remove me from his office. I am done they will not be back to this horrible school I am pulling them now and will go as high as I have to this school needs to be shut down the the principle fired for the way he treats people the staff are so rude and disrespectful. I will not allow a school or its officals to mistreat my children.
the staff in this school are very rude. fighting. theft and bullying are a common occurrence .according to principal that is normal.i wouldnt recommend this school to no one. good kids are not safe.
My son attends the robotics program here. He absolutly loves the program and his main teacher Mr Wilson. Unfortunately, this amazing and beneficial program was set up in a dorrible school. It is the second week of school and they've already madre 9 (nine) arrests! My son's been in three separate altercations; thrown against the wall, punched etc If there wasn't a robotics (school within a school) I'd have pulled him from this school back in the 2011-12 school year. The entire school should be gutted and rebuilt with a sharper office staff, better communication between the office, student affairs, teachers, and parents.
