this is what i had to do last year to get the schools attention. apparently my mouth isnt loud enough. Statesville Middle School parents speak out against bullying STATESVILLE, N.C. --- Tabytha Wainscott, the mother of a Statesville Middle School sixth-grader, said she doesn t feel safe sending her son to school. statesville record and landmark 3-10-12
This is a HORRIBLE school! We had to fill out a Bully Report on the first day of school due to my child being slammed into lockers for no reason whatsoever. The offender was not even disciplined. Then my son was threatened and "revenged" until we finally had to pull him and his brother out of the school. There was no learning whatsoever that took place. The kids tested well below grade level after attending for 1 year. Theft was rampent. Class schedules were very unbalanced (too many math and english and no computer, science, soc studies, music or art). My children learned to cheat and hate school here. One teacher read newspapers and ignored kids. On the positive side, there was one REALLY EXCELLENT math teacher that we hated to leave behind.
this is a great skool because it has such great teachers and is in a good enviorment.
I was totally disappointed with SMS as a whole. The unorganization of the entire staff was very evident. The office staff is a joke, no one knows what is going on and everyone wants to direct you to someone else. The principal is clueless. The teachers try to be helpful and are quick to respond but they lack the support from management staff. The building itself is rundown and in need of upgrading. Septic bubbling up in the courtyard area. Mega units that need attention. I will not be sad to leave this school system.
