Sanford Jr High School 1

Sanford Schools have got to be one of the worst environments for students when it comes to adult teachers and Principals for bullying there students, The lack of care and lack of teaching to their students is very degrading to their students. They are disrespectful to parents who are involved with their children's learning and grades. If issues arise between both students and teachers, I as a parent have been told we have no time for you or your child and to take it up with superintendents office. Adults bullying children is worse then children bullying children, My experiences have been with both children bullying my children and grown teachers and principals bullying me as a parent and my children. Horrible learning place for kids, they so don't follow policies of no violence or bullying being tolerated, they allow it and the Adults in charge do it themselves, to parents and students. Unacceptable!

My school is honestly the worst. I go here, an just it seems like no one cares. I sat in the bathroom for an hour crying because I just don't want to come here anymore.

The principal and vice principal are wonderful and understanding of this age group. Some of the teachers need training, not in educating a person, but rather educating and understanding teenagers. Discipline is well above average. Safety excellent. I feel quite safe while my child is at Sanford Junior High School.

Sanford Junior High has excellent staff members, a caring guidance department, however, the demographics of this district make it difficult for a middle class child to keep the norms of a middle class philosophy. Many programs are missing. Gifted and Talented positions are few; it is made up of two consultants to oversee too many schools and students. There is no foreign language departments available at the Jr. High School. It is geared for children who are at the poverty level. Most resources support this statement. Overall, staff and administration are doing an excellent job with little room for programming for the middle to upper class family .

Sanford Junior High School is an excellent school. It has a mix of students from all income levels. It has some excellent teachers and a very helpful guidance department. There are many clubs to participate in. It is always clean and welcoming. The rate of parent involvement could be higher.

Sanford Junior High School is a very good school for anyone interested in clubs. They have everything from Student Council to the Yu-Gi-Oh Club. The Sports department is also above average with Field Hockey, Basketball, Softball, Baseball, Cheering, and more. I think the structure could use improving, and they should be more strict. My son, Eric gets teased a lot at this school and the teachers/principal do not seem to do anything to put a stop to it. However some of the students are not all that good, but the actual school itself is pretty good.
