Poland Junior High School 4

My daughter was a new student there last year and now it's as if she has been knowing everyone her whole life. As a mother, I was concerned about her fitting in and making new friends. Silly concern because now she has so many friends, it's hard to keep up. The staff has been helpful, professional, patient, understanding and incredibly caring when discussing some of my daughters learning disabilities. She went from barely passing to honor roll. She used to cry every morning to stay home. Now she cries if she has to for some reason. I have no doubts, Poland Jr. High has given me hope that my daughter will get the best education and guidance I could ever ask for. And that is something every parent wants for their child

As a parent of two children that attend Poland Junior High School, I give it the highest possible recommendation. Each teacher that we have encountered has shown individual concern towards our kids and have been more than accommodating in every possible way. The principal is approachable, down-to-Earth and refreshingly honest in all matters. Although the physical building is a little dated, the staff [even including the maintenance personnel and bus drivers] has an overall delightful attitude of helpfulness and courtesy. Frankly, it seems many parents here just drop their kids off and expect the school to work miracles. The school can do a lot, but parental involvement definitely needs to increase. That responsibility rests with the parents, not Poland Junior High. Yes, bullying occurs everywhere. We have had an incident and some days are harder than others. But on the whole, I am surprised and pleased with this hidden jewel of the Rapides Parish School system. A close relative of mine has recently substituted at a few other Rapides Parish Junior High schools, and not only are they far worse, they are sickening. I say Go Poland Bulldogs!

I would not recommend poland school my daughter goes there and she is constantly being bullied and She went several times to the principal and the principal acted like it was her fault why she was getting bullied and I even called them several times and they did not do anything and the teachers act like they don't know what there doing and they are not organized.

I must disagree with the other reviews. This is a great school and many families move to this community just to go to this great school. The teachers are great and expect the most of the children. That is why this school has such great test scores and the students win alot of awards around the parish. Poland students won the most awards in the writing competition in the parish for the last 2 years. They also have more activities then basketball-Poland offers basketball, baseball, softball, the #1 4-H club in the parish, Jr. Beta Club which are involved in alot of great activities. Poland also awards their students with great awards at the end of each year-ipods, nintendos, TVs, steros, bikes, gift certs. to AE, Academy, and many more. I beleive parents who think they could do a better job, maybe they should go try! This is a great school!

I would not recommend this school to anyone at this time. The teachers do not conduct themselves in a professional manner. They are allowed to dress in inappropriate clothing and are not setting a good example for our children. The principal does not care about anyone but himself and the faculty. He pushes for high test scores but could careless on making sure the children are being taught properly. The only activity currently being offered is basketball to ONLY certain children. This school's population has declined over the last several years. It will continue declining until the school board steps up to the plate and gets rid of the principal, assistant principal and certain staff which includes the truancy officer. This is a school people stand up for your child's educational rights.

This school is not recomended for several reasons. The teachers do not handle themselves in a professional manner. The principle does nothing for the students. This schools population has declined in the past few years and will continue to decline until the school board gets that principle out of there along with certain teachers. There are no activities for the children.
