I think you guys should know that my school is top notch. It has zero tolerance for violence. What I like about my school is the nice , kind teachers and rate 10 education . Rate 10 Broke My Scale. My school could improve by having year long activities like weekly. I would recommend my school to any one in 6th 7th or 8th grade. I love my school , the students and most staff . Please send your child to this school , its awesome .

The school has not had a competent administration since it opened. The students are running the school because they were taught year one that there are NO real consequences for misbehavior. Teacher careers & health are being ruined. Well behaved students are being bullied and their educations are being DESTROYED because of classroom disruptions. 90 minute blocks become 45 mins. Or less of instruction due to disruptive students not being removed. The school could be successful if they would stop sending DEMOTED ADMINISTRATORS to run it. Good teachers and students do not stand a chance at this school. It is the most hostile public school environment I have ever witnessed!

This school is very much unconstitutional and fair to students and teachers. Administrators are really not there for the good of students and teachers. Learning is not a priority but out of control behavior is when it comes to education. Constantly, teachers are quitting because there is a tremendous lack of leadership in the school. Students are always fighting and teachers being disrespected all the time. Administrators say that this type of behavior is ok. Wow! What has really happen to this school. I do not recommend for any upstanding and caring parent to bring your child to this type of institution.

This school should be shut down! The "leadership" is only interested in advancing their careers, regardless of how many teachers leave and how many students suffer. It is amazing how many teachers and other staff members have quit. This school is only four years old and the turnover has been off-the-charts! The absenteeism is a serious problem too. Teachers tell me that there is always time for stupid meetings and coverage but never enough time for planning. Classes get disrupted by dispersed students who do nothing but play and cause trouble. Not one Teach For America teacher has stayed beyond the two years required. All have fled. Parent involvement is nonexistent when it come to helping out but they sure have no problems coming in for sports and/or to complain. The students are really something else! The behavior is pathetic and they are so unruly and disrespectful is defies imagination.

My daughter is in 7th grade, i am now looking for a new school. I wish i would have trusted my gut and not sent her to this school. To say the least, the teachers have low expectation for the students. They are unorganized, the students seem to be uncontrollable. I would not reccomend this school!

I am not happy with this school at all. We moved here from Catawba County and I regret it everyday..... I have found the staff has no control over the students and their actions, the class room size are up to 35 in a class, The office staff can never give any answers to whats going on in the school, and a good number of the teachers are rude. I have 3 children and my oldest went to Bandys High, I have never been more disappointed in a school in my life!!!

This is a horrible school. My son is in 6th grade, the school year is half way over and I can count on one hand the number of times he has had homework. They have assigned 1 project this year, and he is anything but challenged here. The students are disrepectful, and so are some of the teachers. He is learning things in 6th grade that he was already taught in 4th grade! They have even discontinued most of the middle school sports. I donot recommend this school to any parent or child!
