I am a teacher at the school. There is very little structure or routine in place for the students. Students are given far too many opportunities to behave badly even when another student is assaulted or hurt. There is little drive amongst the students to perform in class or even do their work. The administration pushes promotion of failing students, compounding the problem. I would not send a relative to this school, but there are worse schools in the district.
sylvan was a fun schoo and my seventh grade year was the best i admired my coach coach.eberhart he taught me that i was special in ways i didnt and in track sms track and field girls was the best in atlanta public scools and my p.e teacher coach.morrow was the best and than my 8th grade year they was gone!but i still enjoyed myself with shataura
I think the school is great overall. I can say the teachers will call and advise the parents of any behavior problems and missing classwork etc.. There is no limit on what I will do to ensure my child is educated and I think that the staff at Sylvan Middle School feels the same. The Schools Website could use a little more update (that's just my opinion). I think that teaching staff at sylvan middle school does a great job informing me a situation before it gets out of hand. And if you are a parent express your concern in regards to your child's education and I am sure you will receive the same. Let's remember it takes the village to raise the children. I'm out, Peace!
