I'm a student here and i don't know why parents are saying that its really bad in this school because they don't even go to the school and don't know what's going on. My opinion is that the students are the one's who could actually say things about the school. So if your child is getting wrote up for no reason, there should be one probably their behavior or something else they've done. So its not even as bad as you parents say it is.
Unfortunately this is my daughter 1st year attending this school and I regret transferring her here because it's a mess. They are always writing kids up for no reason and dont interven in problems that need to be addressed. There isn't any order in this shool. I have email mailed teacher weekly and no response. They don't care about the children and just going for a paycheck! Please be advised! DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!

Unfortunately, I must agree with the other reviews. The principle and teachers do not care about the students. It is a job to them versus a career. Their dedication level is poor. I often see the principle out a bars trying to find a date. The principle's emphasis should be placed on the children and their education.
This school is terrible the teachers do not care about students or Parents. The children that go to this school do not have any respect fot anything. They should save tax payers money and close all three of the schools. They really are not teaching and the children are not learning waste of time and my money.
My son attended this school last year, and unfortunately, I must agree with some of the comments I've read here. There seemed to be a general lack of discipline at the school. I don't know whether to attribute it to the teachers or the parents. What I witnessed was parents who did not seem to know or care about the kinds of antics their children were up to at school, and children who felt free to try to terrorize classes, mock teachers, and bully other children. Some of the staff were great and were about the business of really trying to help the children, but there were others who seemed not to know much about teaching and were getting a check, while their classrooms were supremely disorderly.
Although, most of these passages are correct I would like to see more parental envolvement and discipline amongst our teachers.What the students call the bench is supposed to a bad thing not a regular routine. I am now in eight grade and about to graduate and last year with my peers behavior I am suprised that they passed.I understand the point of view parents are coming from and agree with them by saying students don't represent me,the school, or parents. Also a lot of my peers are into the new fad called sagging which I find doesn't represent any of us.I am in the scholastic bowl,8th grade basketball team, and math bowl. I am very intelligent and disciplined which I can't necessarily say about many of our other students.Right now our basketball team has 0 wins and 8 losses all because we can't get our grades up. Thank you!
Unfortunately my son attends this school and it's a mess. There isn't an arts program at this school. There isn't any order in this shool. I went to the school to sit in my son's classes and in one class the teacher lets them do as they please. Unacceptable.
I disagree with most of the comments posted here. It is not the school's fault for how our children behave. We as parents should began discipline at home and teach them how to respect adults and to respect themselves. It is easier to blame someone else other than yourselves. Take the time to teach your children to behave and to learn some manners. This way they can go to school to learn not act like wild animals.
Well when I first when to register my son as a transfer student I was STUNNED and very unsure as to if Iwanted my children to attend this school. Its very unfortunate that this is the only JR HIGH in the district and pray that when my son is done with intermidate school, there would have been some changes to this school. Children were everywhere, there does not seem to be any since of order/discipline set in the school. CHildren were yelling in the hallways, not caring how they represent themselves or the school. You see nothing but children sitting on the 'hot bench'. I left in tears saying to myself, is this what my son has to expect coming here, coming from a very well educated 0 tolerance school. District 109 in Justice.
I been at this school for 2 years and I can not say anything postive about it.The principal does not do very well. And she does'nt even know your name. She only knows the the'bad kids' names.
