My son went here in 2007 and I thought it was great but now my daughter goes here and I'm shocked at how bad this school is!! My child has been threatened and bullied to the point of wanting to harm herself, when brought to the dean and principal all you get is they are investigating which in this school means nothing will be done, the victim will be ridiculed and everyone ends up picking n them more if they give names. I have contacted state leaders to get help and still nothing. So not only is my child getting bullied they are now trying to bully me as well!!!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL IT WILL DESTROY YOUR CHILDREN
I personally dislike as do many others. Seville is not clean at all. Always roaches or something in the lunch room! The teams and clubs are very unorganized and annoying. Many students are disrespectful and disruptive. Just today in physical education I was pushed and kicked in the sand because I told someone to stop cursing and picking on people. The staff is rude and is probably only there for pay. Just last week there were 12 fights. Kids losing there virginity here and there. It's disgusting. Don't even get me started on how much you have to pay just for things at the school. The only satisfactory thing there is the choice period. Aka drama, art, band,orchestra. Although the teachers don't stop the kids from doing most thing. After this week there are five weeks left and I just can't wait to leave this place. -a concerned student
"Paycheck" that's all what I see in this school. Teachers at Saville don't get the meaning of "Dedication" So disapointed about this school i solo done know how they did to ver a 7 rating. They dont encourages any student to be better, I've two straight "A's" and they always complain about how boring and uninteresting way they use to teach. How if somebody don't know how to do something teachers prefer to change the subject instead of encourage them to learn. So disappointed
I am an EX student of Saville. I graduated and am happy to be gone. There were few teachers that actually cared about what you did. the school is full of cliques based on race or religion. there is constant fights between groups. I remember there was at least 3 fights a week if not more. My first days at Saville were not welcoming, the students were often rude, and the teachers acted like I was yet another burden that they had to take responsibility. I understand that there are good reviews of the school, but lets be honest most kids don't tell their parents on what is happening at the school. and the ones that do hear about them aren't sharing the information that they need to be sharing. In all honest unless you are a Caucasian Mormon family, its no the school for you, even then the only benefits you would get is better treatment from the teachers. everything else is the same. Saville you will not be missed
I'm an eighth grader at saville and next year I will be a freshman at NWCTA, I think this school is great. There is a redoubt policy which means you can retake an assignment until you are happy with your grade so it isn't difficult to get A's and B's. Many teachers are there before and/or after school so kids can retake tests. This year so many 8th graders were failing because of 2 teachers so they created this math camp thing where. They called kids down to the library and they stayed there the whole day being taught math. But overall, this is a great school and I will miss going here.
I am an eighth grader at Saville and have been here since sixth grade. Everyone at this school is so nice except of course some of the kids. The teachers for the most part are really good, for your electives you have a wide range of electives for you to choose from. This year there was a bit of trouble with math most kids from 2 classes were falling (not mine) and to fix it they did math camp and that helped most of them go from an F to an A or B. They also have tutoring to help kids. There is also a redo policy in place, so if you or your kid has a bad grade they can retake that test or quiz as many times as they want. Overall I had a great time at Saville and will miss it here as I go on to NWCATA.
I have attended Saville for 3 years, and this year being a freshman at NWCTA. Even after four days of going to a new school, I can already compare the two. Most teachers at Saville are only there for a paycheck. There are some that do actually care, but only a fraction of them. The kids there are very disrespectful to their peers, and the teachers. Another thing is that the deans do NOT enforce any rules, besides the dress code. I myself have never been dresscoded, but it seemed to me like that was the only thing they cared about. Also, the office staff are very unfriendly and snap at you very easily. I am a straight A student, and have been all throughout middle school, but I still dreaded going there every single day. The teachers did not care for the students, the students were extremely disrespectful, and the school was also very unclean. Fights happened often, but yet, none of the kids involved would be expelled. After four days of going to high school, I saw how bad Saville really was by comparing the two schools. NWCTA was clean, friendly, and just amazing. That is how schools should be, which Saville was definitely not.
My daughter is in her third year at Saville, with absolutely no complaints. I appreciate the ongoing enforcement of school rules that is provided to make sure students are kept safe and in a pleasant environment. The ParenLink tool is wonderful! And I appreciate the teachers for staying current with students' grades
I was shocked when we went to the open house this past week and the principle went over AYP scores (which Saville did not meet the requirement) and they listed how everyone did by race. They listed the Caucasians, and the percentage by which they improves and under that they listed "sub groups" which were Asians, African American and Hispanics. I thought this was demeaning. Why couldn't they just list and over all percentage by all students rather than segregate them? What a horrible display of racism.
