I'm an eighth grade student here, just about to leave the school. And to be completely honest, it's really not that great. I'm not going to say stuff like "Oh, the teachers were mean" or that it's on a budget, but the staff are very ignorant. Communication is useless with many of the teachers, as they will barely, if not do anything, to solve any issues with you or your kid. The guidance department is also very bad as well. The current one is very...how do I say this without being rude...Insensitive? Yeah, that's the word. My peers and I have not been helped all that much by guidance. Also, EVERYONE plays favorites. I'm not exaggerating. And I'm a good student (I'm going into accelerated classes in NMRHS and taking 2 languages), and I swear, I haven't learned much.
I love all they options and 1 on 1 attention the kids get. Having moved from a very overcrowded city school to this one has been amazing!
Excellent staff, very supportive school administration, and hard-working, motivated students.
This is the best middle school you could go to! Great teachers and students. Lots of fun!
Oh do I love this school! This is the best school ever. I love my teachers a ton! I have tons of friends at this school and everyone of them are wicked awesome Everyone compliments one another and they all have a sense of humor. The principle is someone I never hear from. She is always really quiet. The after-school activities are awesome! I do track and cross-country. There are also many other things you can do there that fulfill the needs and wants of everyone. OK, there is only one thing wrong with this school. It's on a budget. They have to lay-off 15 teachers and get rid of teams (for classes. they have a red,white, and blue team.) Well I hope this helps!
The quality of the academic,music,arts and,sports programs as well as the other extracurricular activities is average.The problem is in the areas of communication and organization.We have experieced problems in these two areas from the parent/teacher conferences to the after school late bus and more.
