This school has severe lack of communication with the parents, they do not seem to want to solve problems, and a few of the teachers act like it is a chore to have to meet with the parents to discuss their childs progress. They are also considering leaving part of the school magnet and turning the other half into a neighborhood middle school. I am very dissappointed with this school and my child will not be returning next year and neither will one of his friends.
I went to Young from sixth grade to eighth grade. I am now in high school but I cannot stress how much Young had an impact on me. Young's outstanding teachers transformed me into a better student, a better person and I just thank them. At Young, I was around positive influances all day long which really keep your spirts up. Young is like a big family. They have an AWESOME eighth grade team..all of there teams are excellent. I am SO glad I went to Young because if I hadn't I would not be the student or person I am today and that is someone who strives for education..at it finest.
Young Middle Magnet School's Staff has created a wonderful environment for teachers, students and parents to grow into the teenage years. I have three sons. One has graduated from Young. Two currently attend Young. My oldest is smart. He enjoyed his classes and friends. My second son has always struggled. Now, in 8th Grade, he is taking Honors English, Honor Math and IPS Science and making A's & B's. He play bass, guitar, Trombone and football and basketball at school. He has come a long way. My youngest is very smart. He loves Hanna Math and Music. The teachers are inspiring. The staff is supportive. And the school family is a safe, no nonsense, community where student excell!
I sent my son 6 - 8th and currently am sending my 6th grade daughter. There is a unique chemistry at Young that is hard to describe. It is a combination of faculty, parents and children who want to be there. It is like one huge blended family. My kids feel safe at Young and you don't have to be a math/science wiz to benefit from this program. There are various levels of math and science as well as an outstanding arts program. You can check the stats yourself, but a personal testamony speaks volumes. I hope I will be able to send my 3rd grader there in 3 years
