Kathleen Middle School1

This is the worse school my child has attended. There is no respect tours teachers, teachers are afraid of the students, in the attempt to be cool they allow too much disrespect. Students throw balls of papers at PE coach, students neck their teachers (neck=smack neck with back hand) teachers are not consistent with rules, teachers are unfair and very poor communication with parents.
Kathleen Middle is not that bad of a school. I agree they spend most of their time worried about dress code. But if you seen what those children are wearing to school,you would to. The girls are dressing like whores and the boys always have their pants on the ground. I admit that they do let the kids off easy put that the way it has to be. If one kid gets away with it then a whole bunch of kids would want to do it. Also the teachers do not worry about dress code because the deans are walking in the room at an unpredictable time. Kathleen Middle is a great fun place to send your children. The only reason why they are so strict is because they have to be. So don't let the other parents fool you into not sending your child there.
Totally agree with the comments about the staff (not the teachers so much as the gustapo style Deans) being more concerned with belts and keeping everyone "under control". My straight-A daughter was sent to ISS this week for not wearing a belt for the first time. They spend most lunch periods on "silent lunch"...and they don't mean "quiet lunch"...if you are caught even mouthing a word, you get put on the stage in front of everyone to eat your lunch. They paint their bathrooms black and are just in general what I would consider LAZY. They do all they can to make their jobs easier and have not a concern at all for the students school experience. They are basically treated like a bunch of cattle to be run through the shoots as quickly and quietly as possible.
This school is horrible! All of the students are on a lock down basically every week. And the administrators care more about dress code then the students' academics! This school is so pathetic. Please, do not send your kid(s) to this school. Its a dictatorship.
kathleen is one of the most well educaded school.it is not true that teachers spend most of the day fixing the students shirts.The princepal makes dances or field days so the students dont forget to tucked in their shirts or leave the belt at home.so dont let other people convice you that Kathleen Middle School is a bad school because all the students that go there are very smart and talented
