This school has a lot to improve on. A LOT of bad behavior and little control over students. There's a lot that goes and the administrators pay little attention to it. There's a fight at least once every few days, At least in the 8th grade.
I am very disappointed with my daughter's learning experience at George Fox Middle. Most of her teachers, with the exception of two, had poor classroom management, hardly assigned thought provoking assignments, hardly gave homework. Lots of poor behavior at the school.
My thoughts exactly! And why was the building so dark! On a good note my kid had a fantastic week and loves all of her teachers!
Im not sure how to feel about the Principal being a no show for the 6th grade orientation tonight. If he avoids the easy stuff how does he handle the difficult task of being a leader at a school with a less then perfect reputation??
Nice school, teachers avail themselves to the students. Fox Paws are great incentives. No bullying issues. My children are happy there, and have learned alot from science and math teachers.
I had fun attending the school. Only if I spent one year there. The teachers were horriable. And the school is in the ghetto. That was one of my best years
My child is a 6th grader. He was nervous about George Fox because of bad rumors. We have learned that those are just rumors! My child's teachers are caring & helpful, and want my child to succeed. They give encouragement and recognition every day. Despite the school's poor standardized test grades on average, my child is always above average compared to county and state, so regardless of the school"s performance as a whole, my child is excelling and thats all I care about! The new principal is caring and wants to make it a great school. After school clubs, after school help and activiity buses are a great benefit. So far so good at George Fox. Don't believe all the bad rumors!
I love this school im in all advance classes there and going into 8th this year so far algebra 1 was ok my teacher at first helped us then he during the middle of the year he kid around with us but then when the important stuff came like the hsa and final he kicked in and helped some thing i dont like is that some teachers expect you to know stuffand you really dont and that there are some fights people throw stuff in class and some time teachers tont relize and that there is so many brodjects i had like 18 last year and that cost some money but over all this is a good school
overall i think this school is a great school but i think we hav too much hw that involves online textbooks. i think we should do the textbook stuff in class. plus, the blackboard said that you use your account that u use to get on a school computer to get onto blackboard but mine isnt working. i also am still trying to get used to this school bc theres way too many hallways it makes it hard to not get lost.
Because my kids go their, it's close and it has lots of stuff for after school activities and homework help.
Thi school has to be one of the most unsupervised schools in history, the teachers never see anything. If your child goes there you know what i mean. this school has a huge bullying and intimidation problem.. some of the teachers have been known to take part in such behavior as well. the 0 tolerence policy on fighting only exsist if your caught defending yourself. i couldnt continue without clicking atleast 1 star but, its non desearving.
This school rocks but some teachers don't help the students I'm in all advanced classes they exspect so much of us. The best teacher is mr.vickerman he makes gym the best class he is so fun.i love this school
Overall, I'd say that George Fox is an average middle school. My son is in all advanced classes and is challenged. I'd say that his experience has shown TOO much homework and TOO many projects. Although I'm satisfied with most of my son's teachers, one teacher made his 6th grade experience so bad, it outshadowed everything else. It wasn't until higher management, outside the school, got involved that anything was done to correct the problem. This year has been a MUCH better experience for everyone concerned. As with any school, you only get out of it what you put into it...
there are alot of fights and some of the teachers don't pay attention to the students and they're only nice to the students that are the smartest in the class. but there are some nice teachers like mr. vickerman because he tries to make gym fun. but alot of people don't learn anything b/c the teachers don't help them to understand everything. alot of my friends say they hate this school, and i partially agree because they suspend you just for not having your lanyard, i don't think this is a very good school...
I love george fox middle school the teachers are great espically mr.Mcelwain and mr.Vickerman there awesome teachers and mrs.Lee is an awesome assistant principal i give it a 5
This school is terrible. My child never did a single project the entire year and hardly ever had homework. He watched many videos and I believe that he will struggle come the nineth grade. Very sad that the students are not the priority at this school.
I go to george fox and i think it is a great school.This is my second year and my scores keep grtting higher and higher.
I think this school is great. They have so much to offer the children and the teachers are very involved. Keep up the great work!
My children have become so stupid since I moved them to George Fox. The teachers and administration are cruel and uncaring. They have no compassion for the education and futures of our children.
