I go here and it is a very great school. The motto is the big 3 which is do what's right, do what's best, and treat others the way you want to be treated. this is enforced very strongly, but the classmates are very rude but mostly in the gym classes since it is their chance to "show off". The school itself and staff are EXCELLENT! but the classmates have a bit rudeness in them. this school still has good students but the rude ones are the popular and jocks. anyone moving here should definitely enroll their child here, it will be well worth it since i also just moved here and i have a bunch of quirky,nice,funny friends. the teachers deal with bullying perfectly so just one tell and they automatically are suspended or get a referral.
My daughter is in 7th grade had two problems with bullying, this school does not tolerate bullies, the teachers and staff are very reasonable with students. Out of all middle schools Indian Trails is the best, I feel safe leaving my daughter in this school. By the way school continues to be perfectly clean!
I just graduated from this school. I went there 6th-8th.I must say it was a great school.I got introuble alot but ms.widing(sp?) and the rest of the deans steared me straight if that how i should put it.they got me back on track with my school work and i stayed out of alot of trouble.Im glad i went to that school. they have an amazing staff
I am a 6th grader in this school, and I'm supposed to be in 8th. I love this school so much!! I do get in trouble very often but thats just my problem. The behavior system and dress code is a littel strict but otherwise this is a great school! The teachers do their best to help you out and my Favorite teacher is Ms. Kim.
This school is awesome!!! My daughter is in 7th grade and she loves this school. It is bright and open. The teachers that we have dealth with the past 2 years are unbelievably better than any other place we have been!!! The administrative staff is also very helpful to the students. The 7th grade counselor Ms. Fasnet (not sure sp) is phenomenal!!! She cares about the students and helps them in every way!! They have several activities and fun things for the kids to enter and be in the whole year. They have lacrosse and football. What else could you want, a school that has been A+ for 3 or more years!!! Not sure why there are negative issues with this school because we have ahd nothing but positive things from this school!!! An Involved Parent
I am disappointed with the way some of the administration treat the children. They are not good role models. On the up side...the new band teacher Mrs. McIntyre is uplifting, treats the kids with respect ,and truly motivates the kids to want to succeed!
Hi, i'm an 8th grade student attending Indian Trails Middle School. I have attended Indian Trails since Kindergarden. The school was recently changed to a 6-8 school. This school is great! The food is good, there is a nice variety. We have an ala-cart line with fruit, a salad bar, etc. And We also have a regular lunch line that is cheaper, with hot meals. The teachers are really nice. The staff is also very niiiice(: The school is very very clean. Everyday the school gets cleaned. The teachers and administration really listen to what the students have to say. They let us voice our oppinion at any time. Indian Trails currently has a lacrosse teaaam! which is wonderfulll:D A Football team, a basketball team, a cheerleading team, and many other extracurricular activites. I love this school, I would much rather go here than any other middle school in the district.:D
I wish I could have more space to write, but please do not take your child to this school. All I can say is that you CANT CHANGE your classes, and almost every teacher is frightening and very hard to understand.
My daughter just started here this year and is in the 7th grade. It has not been an easy transaction. The teachers seem nice but her grades have really dropped. Not much cooperation in trying to contact teachers and staff members have not been much help either. Alot of confusion with dropping off and picking up the kids. Really need a traffic officer during school opening and releasing
This school for starters is horrible. It is very dirty. They just painted but did not finish painting, so the wall is half painted and half not. The bathrooms are never cleaned, if you put your backpack down on the floor and pick it up there is dirt all over it. The gum has finally been power washed off the floors. The only positive part of the school is the teachers. I would not recommend this school.
I have gone here my whole middle school career and love it! The school teachers are great and things are well organized the school never has much violence its clean andthe food is actually good!
I commend the school for making the transition into middle school a good one for my child. I believe that his growth is directly contributed to the administration and staff.
The middle school is alright. I have 2 daughters who are going there. The teachers seem nice and I love the fact that they have many after school activities.
This school has a great family atmosphere and provides many oppurtunities for education. My child feels right at home here and has excelleld in his studies. I have two children that attend Indian Trails and I couldn't be happier. My daughter will be attending in two years and I will have all three of my children at Indian Trails and I can't wait.
For starters the school is very nice and clean. It is alittle scary for younger kids due to its size. They are tight with security so forget walking them on their first day. It is confusing to pick up children in car rider lines, and allow yourself 1 hour before dismissal to be in line if you don't want your child to be 30th in line to be picked up. It doesn't seem that they will change there procedures so good luck. Haven't encountered the gridlock yet with the new school next door being built. New principal too. 2004 will hopefully be better even with new changes.
