I think that Pierce is a really good school. My son had attended private and magnet schools and this was our first experience with a 'neighborhood school'. We were very impressed. From the special attention given by the guidance counselor, to the teachers taking the time to stay in touch, this has been a wonderful experience.
I was not very impressed with this school or it's staff. You can never get through on the phone and usually when you do you're disconnected. They also have no support system in place for children who are a part of the EH program. They will not go above the minimum requirements
My child attended Pierce Middle school for the past 4 years, (he was retained in the 6th grade) I'm not satisfied with the leadership at this school, during this time, out of all of the teachers he has encountered, two were exceptional. The administration is of no assistance, they don't have the leadership skills required to make for a great school.
If your incoming 6th grader is lucky enough to be on Team Survivor you have it made. The team has high expectations and they are concerned with making sure your child learns. Coach Ford does a good job with extra-curric. sports. Electives are thin, but the kids like art and home ec the most. Your kid is safe here. Parent involvement is at the minimum. I don't know why this year. It would be nice to have more.
The Administration needs improvement. They state on their website that mandatory uniforms will be enforced, but they do not. This is the primary way the school is run, no follow through on Rules or Discipline.
Great school with lots of diversity. Victor Fernandez is a great principal who cares about his students, faculty, and staff.
