Fox Chaple is a horrible school! They do nothing about issues that you bring to their attention. The kids there are disrespectful and the teachers don't respond back to you about your child's work. They don't update edline for you to view your child's work. They worry more about writing kids up for dress code then actual offenses. This school is a joke...I am pulling my children out of this school for next school year.

I have a student that attends to this school at the present time, and let me tell You I am not all impressed with ANY of his teachers. All they do is complain about my son and his failing test grades, instead of coming up with ways for us to help him succeed or having anything in couraging to say. I'm already looking into erolling him in a different school.

This school is excellent.This is my second year here,as a 7th grader,and I have no problems with teachers or grades.By reading this I know you have probably read alot of other reviews.I am here to tell you that MOST reviews are from students failing,slacking,or have 4 math classes due to horrible grades due to multiple years of failing. I don't blame them for skipping or acting horribly but its their fault for doing that.

I went to this school for 6th and 7th grade. Before attending, I heard rumors that this was a bad school, but after I started, I liked it. My class of kids definitely had variety, and variety of different students always helps with making friends, because most were open to being themselves and supporting others' individuality. Teachers were good, I don't know which of my teachers are still there, but there is definitely at least a handful of fun teachers that aren't all "work, work, work", but still do their job. Being a good student, I rarely got in trouble with teachers or administration, and if I saw a situation unfold, I understand why adminstration takes the actions they do against rule-breakers. Guidance counselors are also very nice and understanding, and they give a sense of humor to lighten the mood when appropriate. Fox Chapel also hosted dances, which had our music, good decorations, nearby locker rooms for bookbag placement, and concession stand. Dances were fun and sociable. After starting, I loved this school and was upset when I had to leave before 8th grade.

The front office staff is extreamly rude ! My husband and I called the office concerning a mattter with our child, pertaining to her saftey. Kathy that answers the phone should have some more training for her job. And also a Miss Manners class. Very disappointed.

Just after the end of another school year, I will say that this school did have a discipline problem with the last administration. (But) I have met the new Principal, Ray Pinder, and I am very pleased with the job that he has done this year, and I think that the school has made a dramatic turn-a-round, and is headed in the right direction. I definitely have no problem sending my kids to this fine school.

There is no discipline at this school. One of the worse schools I have ever been part of. Most of the good teachers left because, of the administration. The teachers do not have control of their class rooms and the principal and administration won't back them up.. The unruley middle schoolers with no consquences rule the school.

Terrible school. I came in during the middle of the school year, after winter break, and no one was welcoming at all. Softball was the only thing that introduced me to some really nice people. The students aren't disciplined, just walk out of class whenever they want to, they skip class, they are dis-respectful to the teachers and other student. There are some very rude and inconsiderate kids. I will definitively be leaving this school for eighth grade.

My daughter finished at Fox 2 years ago and my son is now there. Both of them have done great. They are on top of disciplining bad behavior and quick to praise the good behavior. The teachers are eager to help out any way they can and the administrators are friendly and easy to get in touch with. Good Job Fox!

This is a good school. My son loves going to school everyday now. At his previous school in this district, he did not want to go. At FOX he has excelled these last 2 yrs. The teachers are great!

This is a great school,I was accepted,made friends quickly,and love the teachers.I am in 8th grade and I love to learn.My last school was not very good,I disliked it a lot,(I'm very out there with what I wear and everyone was very judgmental and hateful) and was so afraid of what this one might offer.I was very impressed.I would always miss school days and now I hate it when I miss it.The teachers are amazing,not only do they help you understand the subject they make sure you have fun.They really get you into the school spirit.I love to go to school,I look forward to it.There are rarely any fights and everyone is so nice,now this is a school your child should attend.I just love it,and that is from a student's point a view,and one who used to hate to go to school.

My son has just started at the school from SC,The schools in SC did him no good,He was pushed along and his grades where not good,He did not like the schools or teachers or principals,or buses. Now at Fox He likes his teachers,He likes the Principal.Says he does not like the school much but im sure it will get better for him as he makes friends,His grades have even come up some..Its my opinion that some of these kids may not be doing well because of the shock of moving to a new school.So lighten up parents,School staff keep up the good work..

As a former Fox Chapel teacher myself and having had my son go through Fox Chapel the last three years,I feel I have a good perspective on the school. My son did wonderfully all three years. He enjoyed all of his teachers. He was in all upper level courses and each of the teachers for those classes were very well qualified. Now that he is in high school he realizes how prepared he was after leaving FCMS. He is thankful not only for that but for all of the ' extras' that were graciously given out at the school, i.e. field trips, award ceremonies, rewards for good grades and good attendance.

I agree with the parent that left their review in June 2005, this school is a failure! There is no other way to put it. I brought my A student daughter from NJ, and within a matter of 6 weeks she 'became' D student. I took time from my job and came to school everyday for three days in order to speak to ONE of her SEVEN teachers and still have not been able to meet with one. I was told by the Guidance counselor that I needed to speak to the 'team leader' in order to set up a meeting to speak to my child's teachers, it is now day four, and still the team leader has not contacted me. Everytime I go to that school, I meet a parent that tells me they brough an A or B student there that is now failing.

I was greatly disappointed in this school. I felt because of a move to Florida my daughter in the 8th grade wasn't doing as well as expected. I placed at least 1-3 phone calls a month to the school and at least 75% of them were not returned. I felt every time I did talk to someone I got the 'yes, yes' run around and nothing was followed through with. When I tried to get in to see the principal I was fluffed off to someone else which went against his and I quote 'Total open door policy'. I would not recommend this school to anyone with children on the boarder line of learning or going through a major change in their life. These things are not taken into account at this school and it seems they were only interested at children that excelled. The extracurricular activities were also lacking.
