By all the reviews I've seen so far i don't thing i want to send my child there but i have to because that is the closest school to my house so I hope my child has a good year
Pierce is terrible all and all. Wish we could afford a private school. teachers are mean to the children. Administration is rude and patronizing to parents.
This school is one of the worst schools my daughter has been to.I dont recommend it to any parents. Hate this school, its very ghetto.
My daughter attends Pierce and this school is horrible if it's not being locked down for one reason or another, there is always an issue with a teacher or office staff, she will not be attending next year Parents Be Ware!!!!!!!
If I could give no stars I would. The majority of the students that attend this school are spanish, not saying thats a problem . My son is African American and it seemed as if he has a target on his forehead. I am so happy he will be leaving this school headed to high school. The teachers don't care about the students and have no respect or interactions with the parents.
am the father of ernesto valdovinos( a cuban student) i saw the picture of the trophy of the battle down the book and the name says ernesto estrada and his real name is ernesto Valdovinos as it should be. was a mistake or the child is enrolled as well. thank you, or the mother to enroll the name change. i would like to know thanks a lot
This review is based off of when I attended several years back. 6th grade, so it was the '06-'07 year. It seems things have changed, but when I attended, all teachers I had were very helpful and supportive. It is there that I became one of the four students in Math League. The classes were clean, neat and orderly. The peers were just like any other school's. The principal and other staff were very nice. The courses were not under planned. Meaning we learned something new every day. They were taught quite thoroughly and clear. The extra curricular programs were also quite interesting as well. I enjoyed this school. It may not be the same any more, but I will keep my good memories.
My Child has been picked on the bus and the at physical education! This school is not fair in discipline practices! Like if more then one student gangs up on him it seems that he gets punished and not the others!
Pierce is not such a great school. The only reason my son goes there is because I missed the deadline for choice, but he is soon transferring to a charter school and he & I couldn't be happier. We have had quite a few issues with bullying, & even a physical attack, & I am not happy with the school's response.
I'm a sixth grader and I really like it there. Even though some teachers really don care, the over all experience was like any other school. as long as your kid stays out of the drama, you're clean. ;p.they finally have uniform and way more dicipline. This school is getting better along each step.
i love pierce ! igo there and the teachers r awesome ! the kids are relly sweet,
it a great school with fun friends and graet teachers you need to go
Pierce Middle School is a fun school.Last year,when I was entering 6th Grade,I was really nervous!But soon,I started to calm down because kids were really nice there and they showed me where the classrooms were.Then the fun started!First it was Spirit Week.Spirit Week is suppose to get kids interested in reading,but also a week to have fun.Last year Monday was Sports Day.You dress up or wear colors of your favorite sports team or favorite sport.Tuesday was Hat Day,everyone in my class wore really funny hats that had bells on or the flashing hats,one girl that had really long hair styled her hair to LOOK like a hat!Wednesday was Mixed-Matched Day,you dress up the best you can to look crazy and outrageously mixed matched!Thursday was School Day because FRiday there was no school =(.But it was REALLY FUN!
i Love Pierce.I attended there for 7th and half of 8th grade!!!It was one of the best schools i have ever been to.The teachers and staff are wonderful and so are the activities.I was apart of the spirit and step team and it was a ton of fun!!!!
This school is magnificent, the teacher are so caring to there students.The P.E Coach FORD he is wonderful teacher because he help students to learn to take care of their body.. Also the staff is also caring to their form students and they know what they are doing .. 8)
I love this school for my daughters I love the mix of all diffrent cultures that brings them together as one big family.I expecially love the avid program it gives u a chance to go to college and taeches my daughters thr responsiblitiy of organization and being prepered.
My daughter is a student in the 7th grade and this is my third child to attend this school. I have some serious concerns with some of the teachers-either they are over zelous or under achieving. It is a nightmare getting through to the office and some of the teachers.
I have a child currently in the school and two that attended and I have had a great experience with the staff. Mr Fernandez has done wonders with the delingunecy that the school was having problems with some years ago. Way to go Mr. Fernandez.
This school is not living up to the standard that I imagine, guess my standards were too high. Some of the teachers from my experience don't seem to have control of their classrooms. I'm all for discipline, but how many times do the whole class have to suffer because of a few students. Where's the order in that? My son came to this school as an advanced student. I would like to keep it that way but he's bored to death with some of the lesson plans. A lot of what is taught, he learned in the 3rd and 4th grade. Overall I think that this is a just an ok school.
I was not happy about anything I've encountered so far. It doesn't seem organized, there is obviously no discipline. I'm sure the teachers and other staff want to help the students, but ...Not to mention that the standards for this school is so low that my daughter was put in an advanced math class ok, my daughter needs a math tudor for 6th grade math if they put her in an advanced class for math, is that saying that the other students are not able to perform their grade level math? Another thing that has me concerned is the lunch.
