I went to Sutton from 6th-8th. It was a wonderful experience. The teachers at Sutton really care about their students learning. I enjoyed every single day at Sutton, because I learned stuff that prepared me for my freshman year in high school and beyond.
I am a seventh grade student at Sutton and the teachers are really cool. They help us with our academics if we need it. I love sutton. And so does my mom and my dad.
The academic programs are challenging, e.g., the students have the right to obtain high school credit for work done at Sutton. The teachers are very committed and provide a steady flow of feedback to the parents re: the child's placement and class conduct. There is a plethora of extracurricular programs, including drama, Latin, music, sports and higher level foreign language programs. In addition, for each grade level, there is a learning trip to some part of the United States. Payments are spaced out over a matter of months, allowing the possiblity of a much greater involvement by the student body. Parent involvement is strong, having begun for most parents in elementary school. Although is is stated that during the middle school years, our children do not want us around, they seem to thrive from our participation 'behind the scenes,' fostering a sense of community within the school.
Our daughter is a 6th grader and we are so excited about this school. The principal is a true leader and teachers are very dedicated to the children learning. It has a great atmosphere even in the portables at Tuxedo. Thank you all for your hard work and giving us the feeling of our children learning, being safe and happy.
The academics are great, Sutton has tons of extracirricular activities including band, orchestra, and multiple sports teams and clubs. Parents help out a lot @ Sutton. We have a great PTA. Sutton has a very diverse student body. The teachers are amazing. There are many language courses like French, Spanish, and Latin. We all love Sutton.
As an 8th grade teacher at Sutton, I can't say enough wonderful things about our school. The administration is supportive and professional, the faculty are creative and competent, and our students are intelligent, lively, and diverse. Sutton was my first-choice school and I love every day of it!
Sutton is an outstanding neighborhood middle school. Perhaps its greatest strength is its principal who is an extraordinary leader and has assembled and built a remarkable team of creative and enthusiastic experienced teachers. My son is having a fantastic experience, which I hear echoed over and over by other parents. The new International Baccalaureate program is first class, with a teaching methodology that inspires kids to think critically and creatively. It has made learning fun, even though the work load is heavy. The many clubs and family spirit has been a wonderful environment for my middle schooler.
I am a student there in 8th grade and I think that the teachers in Sutton are really good. This is one of the best schools around!
