I use to be a student back in 7th and 8th grade (now I'm in 10th) and I got horribly bullied. It's expected to get a little made fun of here and there because it's middle school but I actually got book checked, yelled at, called names to my face and one of the girls threatened to kill me. I went to the office multiple times and they did nothing to make me feel comfortable and safe. I stayed home often because I didn't feel okay to go to school. As a matter of fact, they put me in ISS ALONG with the three girls that bullied me when I did nothing wrong. The girls got no punishment besides not being able to walk in the 8th grade graduation (which is nothing compared to what happened to me.) This experience has changed my life forever and I am so disappointed that adults and staff in Jonas Salk let that happen to me. I wish they did more to make me feel better about being there. I couldn't stand one more year there after that so I am in a much better school now. The school is very very bad and the staff and teachers DO NOT care.

My daughter recently started attending Jonas Salk. So far the experience has been good. The administration and PTA care a great deal about the school and the children.

Jonas Salk Middle School is an excellent school. My two children have excelled and the teachers and staff have been fantastic. There are many clubs and opportunities to get involved. I would like to give some Shout Outs to some of the outstanding faculty, Principal William Rezes, Music Teacher Mrs. Hilfman, Social Studies Teacher Mr. Garrison and Ms. Reilly, Math Teachers Ms. Chin and Ms. Whitford and LAL Teachers Ms. Filosa and Ms. Jorda. They are only some of the great mentors that have made huge impacts on my childrens lives.

Salk is a wonderful middle school. From the administration, to the teachers, to everyone involved in my child's life, they are there every step of the way. I have been a part of this school, involved with the PTA for the past 2 years and with just 1 more year to go, I have to say that I am sad to leave it all behind. This school has been an amazing stepping stone in my child's life and I have to say that it has helped shape him into a bright young man, very eager to start the next chapter in his life, high school.

I have been at Jonas Salk for only two years but I have been in education for a total of 12 years and I have to say that the people that work there really do care about their students, parents, fellow teachers & administrators, custodians, aides, and anyone else that works there. It truly feels like a family and everyone is extremely positive even through these bleak times. I also live in town and from a parents perspective I could only be so lucky for my son to attend such a great public school. Everyone who works there should be proud of the impact they have on all the people that enter the doors of Jonas Salk Middle School. As an educator I'm truly inspired to be working with such a great group of people.

My son is in 8th grade - Salk has been a wonderful stepping stone for him. All his teachers have gone the extra mile to help him if needed. The administration has been helpful in all aspects of my son's education at Salk. We will be sorry to go.

This school strives to do better. With a solid foundation of veteran teachers, the staff volunteer their time and help out above and beyond what is required.

This school is horrendous, teacher involvement with students is horrible. The substitutes hired do not know how to teach. The teachers do not even check for completed homework.

This school is great. My daughter is thriving. She came from a private school last year (6th) and adjusted very well. The teachers are very responsive. The administration is on top of everything and very fair in their treatment of the students. The office staff could use a bit of interpersonal skills training. The curriculum is challenging. Afterschool activities are many. The students have a chance to expand their knowledge and their social skill.
