As a magnet school it is outstanding as a ESE school they do not prepare the kids for high school. I have a honors child and a ESE child whom both attended this school. Every school has issues when it comes to kids fighting and this school does it's best to stop it. The ESE kids here have always been looked down on but that's just Broward County Schools in general when it comes to ESE, On the other hand the honor students have some of the best teachers in Broward County at New River Middle. I want to thank all of the teachers in the 8th grade for my sons great 2012-2013 year. I know it could have not been easy for all of you at times.
This school is the worst school I have ever gone too. Personally I think you shouldn't send your child here. Somehow the food is awlways terrible, The staff do not care for their students, Children get in trouble for no apparent reason. It is by far the most disturbing place I've been in. Their is too many fights going on. Children are out of control. Teachers get better treatment then the kids it's stupid! Personally I despise some of the teachers and staff. The teachers give children detentions for no apparent reason.. What kind of treachery is this?! I suggest the people on here that say, "This is the best school.. I miss them..'' needs to stop lying. They are devils! Do not send your kid here they'll only end up not learning anything and start fights with the other kids. It's outrage to say the less.
I had attended New River Middle School for three years. Now I am in high school. I have to say that my eighth grade year was absolutely my favorite. My two most awesome teachers there were Mr. Laton and Ms. Humphreys. Both of them were very helpful and highly enthusiastic about the subject they taught. Overall, the school was great. Im guessing that the experience varies by the so-called clique you are surrounded by. I was mainly friends with the nerdy/unique types. The best middle school that I can possibly imagine.
The teacher and staff are great ... If I need something they are always there...
I went to this school i loved it its the best school i ever went im very sad i had to leave there.Good thing that theres not alot of drama like my other schools
My son did attend to this school for three years. Despite the quality of some teachers, the discipline was terrible. The figths in the cafeteria were very often and even with security were difficult to control. Some activities very good and the magnet program too. Band was extremely good, the kids were very enthusiastic. Some teachers were the best you can expect but some not so good.
My son does enjoy his math teacher and she does go the extra mile for the kids.
This school could be cleaner but over-all it's an awesome school to attend
This school was the absolute worst school. The personnel were unable to control the fighting. They didn't seem to care.
Too many fights and the food is terrible, in my opinion. The curriculum and activities are excellent. I still don't feel safe sometimes with some of the kids there.
The teachers are very involved with the parents helping to provide the best education possible. There are many extracurricular activites ofr students to chose from. Parents are encouraged to get and stay involved so they know the level ov education their child is getting.
