Mr. Hass the principal has been so welcoming since our very first contact with him at the incoming 6th grade welcome assembly. He is in attendance and greets everyone at all of the after school events we have attended. He leads all of the teachers and staff at this school to make it the Best Middle School in the World - their motto.
The teachers have been great. The teachers we have had contact with show true caring for the students and go out of their way to look out for them. Our teachers have gone out of their way to arrange to provide extra support where needed and were very accommodating.
The entire district fosters the pillars of citizenship. This school encourages students to work together and go out of their way to help others. They have created programs to help students feel welcome, included and a part of the community. They encourage students and parents to participate in volunteer opportunities
Scripps Middle School is the best Middle School in the World. The principals, teachers and staff are wonderful. Every time we have gone to an after school event such as academic honors ceremonies and band concerts both the principal and vice principal have been in attendance they are very friendly and welcoming. The team teaching concept is wonderful and gives a larger school and small community feeling and helps the students build relationships with their teachers. The teachers we have had have been exceptional. My son has thrived in this school!
I worked as a substitute teacher for many years, substitute teaching in several different districts and in every single Lake Orion school. I continued to sub in the hopes of getting hired at Scripps Middle School because it truly is the best middle school in the world. The staff and administration are incredibly warm, positive, and dedicated to student success. The students rise to the expectations and then surpass them. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else--this is truly my dream job!
This school is a beautiful school. The school is large, but has a small town feeling to it, everybody knows each other. We have a lot of great GAP programs, sports teams, and teachers. This is definitely the "Best Middle School" in the world. I am proud to be a dragon!
I am a parent and lifelong educator. My son had 1 really great year (7th), one mediocre year (6th) and one very poor year (8th). Teaching is inconsistent, and the quality of the teachers varies greatly. The fact that a student could go from a B to an A and then to a D student without intervention says a great deal. The sixth grade team worked closely with us to resolve issues, and the seventh grade team offered support but not much was needed. Eighth grade was a wasteland of assistance, even when administration was contacted. Lake Orion schools are good overall- but this school does not rise above the others in the area.
Scripps is Great! Almost all the teachers are what i consider to be the best of the best. It has excellent GAP programs, and will have a student-run school newspaper next year. and i must admit, it keeps its students on thier toes!
Scripps Middle School is by far the best of the best. The staff from the Principal to teachers, aides...excellent. They really care about our children acedemically and socially. Middle school is the most difficult time our children's lives and I know with Mr. Haas and his staff that my children are in 'the best middle school in the world'
