My son went to this school for 3 weeks and survived. I was extremely nervous because he is small for his age. Everything that everyone told me about this school was correct. The faculty and staff seemed to be fine but the students there ruined the school. On the second day of school a child stole and ran with a teacher's wallet. My son was the only one in class paying attention. Everyone else was jumping on the tables being loud and obnoxious. My son passed a test and a student grabbed it and tore it. I was there transferring him to another school and in that 10 mins there were 3 students that were being disciplined for disrupting the class, and another parent was also transferring their child out. It is a very sad situation with this school, but definitely a learning experience for my son.
I was a student of Everitt middle school from 2002-2005. I had an extremely enjoyable experience there, I was there when they decided to seperate the boys and girls due to a pregnancy that happened while on school campus. The teachers I had were amazing, I actually thanked by algebra teacher in my speech for valedictorian upon my graduation from high school. I have great things to say about this school. Unfortunately things have changed alot since I left, there aren't many of the teachers I had left, and my little sister had a horrible time there with lack of teachers attention and a huge lack of discipline, students were aloud to do what they pleased resulting in alot of bullying. I am not sure if I'd reccomend this school now, but in 02-05 most definitely.
I had to remove my son from school because of constant bullying. After conversations with the teachers nothing changed. When I went to remove my son from school all I got was, "I'm sorry". Ridiculous!
I wont even give this school 1 star! I enrolled my two children and on the first day my daughter was assaulted in the back of the head at lunch time with an apple and a bottle of gator ade. Confronted the school with this problem and was given the impression this sort of stuff happens. The principal didnt even talk to my daughter concering the incident. Alot of profanity and sexual gestures was observed by my children, this school is out of control. I drove by to pick up my kids only to see students out front fighting and cursing each other no sighn of facullty or staff present. It resembled a jail riot!
My son attends this school as a 7th grader. We are military and I was skeptical. Students are not allowed to have bookbags, only drawstring bags.......The school is not awful but not the greatest either. He comes home almost daily telling me about a fight at lunch or in between classes. I think if your child already knows friends when they start then they will be OK. The school is a bit scary when you walk in during school hours as a parent. The front door is locked except to enter into the main office, from there you can enter the school hall. It has been an experience and am glad that my child attended Tyndall Elementary then Rosenwald to meet friends before coming to this school!
As a current 8th grade student, I'd like to say that this school is a 50/50 but I wouldn't break my neck to go here. We're seperated from boys, our school shirts are not all that great, I wish we could use lockers & the lunch is the same week after week. Most teachers are good teachers because there are some teachers who do care about you & how good you do in their class.
As a parent of a student at this school and a substitute teacher, Everitt like any other school has its flaws. There are several good points to it like the activities available to the students and the teachers are great. There are also things that I would change like the seperation between boys & girls, the right to use the school lockers, new and improved books for all the classes (including the ESE). I would also like to see a change in the school lunch for the students, who eat the same thing every week. In addition it would be nice for the parents to put in their input about what they would like to see instead of just complaining about it. We all have to do our part as teachers, administrators, students and parents. There are several things that can be modified to make this school a school to remember.
Everitt is an awful school to go to. I luv the staff yet and still but they didn't help me at all.
I am sorry that some of you don't like this school.For my daughter loved this school.And I have to tell you that there is some great kids there.I love the kids at this school.Yes some of them can be a handful,but as a sub teacher I can tell you they are a blessing too.
The academic programs of this school is average. It's just average. There is no level of excitement that will bring parent involvement. For the exception of the school's Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) or Fellowship of Christian Students (FCS) is one of the most fascinating programs settled in Everitt. It is a bondage of students who would like to learn about life and God. Not only that, but they have fun. The school has an availability of music with a wonderful teacher who teaches both band and choir. The same teacher was the former art teacher at Everitt; that elective was removed from the Everitt school system after the year 2004-2005. Other Electives/Programs: Newspaper Staff, Library Aids, Office Assistants, Drama Troupe, Student Council, ITV (Everitt TV Crew), Yearbook, etc. Another elective would be Research, also taught by a fantastic teacher. Which lets your child get involved in projects such as Science and History Fair.
This school is not what it is out to be! Thay are only nice when parent are there! Some of the kids half to share books with other to do there school work! This school needs a lot of help!
