My child attends this school and the communication that the teachers have w/the students and parents is great. I like the fact that we get calls from the school to inform the parents of what is going on in the school. The special education teachers "Rock", they encourage they encourage regular student to volunteer to help the special need children. The special need children enjoy there time with the regular student ( who they themselves are special for volunteering). As a parent I recommend this school.
what ever you do DO NOT attend this school i went here 6th - 8th this school is terrible its dirty theres gum on the wall and under desk school is outdated terrible lunches unprofessional the kids there are too ignorant show no respect and the staff is just as bad.
its awful teacher could barley control the class and we didnt learn as much as we could have luckly ill be in mostly ap classes and those are better behavied i was a 6 grader and i hope it wont be as bad as last year good luck to all the six graders i did have a few good thing i got to help with the special needs kids for semester i worked with really sweet boy and i looked forward to everyday
Don't be fooled by the 4 star rating!! There is very little institutional control at this school. A teacher informed us that our daughter was only able to receive 10 % of what she wanted to teach because of the disruptions by the majority of the students. My daughter was also sent to the media center frequently during math with two or three other student to work on handouts while the teacher dealt with behavior issues in the class again those who want an education lose. The icing on the cake. My wife witnessed a teacher trying to defuse a student threatening to beat up another girl. The teacher in trying to talk the girl out of it pleaded with her not to do anything for the next 9 days as it was his job to get her to the H.S. when she refused to back down from her threats his reply was well just don't do it on school property or during school hours. Oh this school has a zero tolerance for bulling. The one positive point at this school is the band program but don't expose your child to this environment just for band. I don't know what has happened to this school most of the reviews are prior to 2009.
I agree with the review posted on June 11, 2008. The principal of this school is not effective. My son is a special needs child and his teachers were not given the tools they needed to deal with him in their classroom. It all came down to problems with the administration.
This school has changed so much with the principal and I am sad to say for the not so good end. Don't get me wrong it is a wonderful school but if you have a problem that needs to be solved then you really can't count on the principal. The teachers and staff are great but if you have a problem don't wast your time trying to get them to fix it. I really liked Eppes better for my child, but end the end it's all about the child and their high school.
