Teachers do welcome communication with parents and do not exert any effort in giving children attention when they don't understand something. Phone calls and emails are ignored and the counselors are useless. My daughter has gone from strait A's and Gate student to c student and all my efforts to reach out to her teachers have failed. They are rude and defensive and I can't understand why they picked their careers. Also, they don't have any sports like track, just the usual team sports that not everybody is interested in. Especially, when there is favoritism, demeaning comments made by teachers and other students. I hate this school and can't wait for my now C student to get the hell out.
My daughter has always been compassionate and kind Saville did not instill these traits in her. But I hear all the time about the disrespect that goes on from teachers and students towards other students there
during a teacher conference two of the teachers were yelling and rolling their eyes at my daughter for not knowing why she is doing so bad in school and later same teacher complained to me how hard her life is driving to work and Dr appt.s... not really my problem
After reading the one-star reviews before my son started at this school, I was pretty scared. However, we have not experienced anything of the sort. My son has had great teachers, esp. Mr. Housanghi, Mrs. Dermer, and Mr. Savage. He came from a magnet elem school, so had to completely make new friends and has not had any trouble with people being mean and has never observed a fight or even someone being picked on (not that it doesn't ever happen...but it is certainly not pervasive). I have spent a fair amount of time on campus and have found the kids to be generally quite polite and respectful and the faculty to be caring and engaged. I suspect that someone was bitter about who knows what and purposely wanted to defile the school.
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
