I moved to North Carolina not expecting much of a quality education... this school has proved me right! I have hopes for better schools.. just not this one! My daughter has had her lunch bag shuffled through accused of drugs! She wore leggings under a skirt that followed policy and still was sent to the office! This school focuses more on the dress code than education. During "I read," the school discriminates against what books the students are reading, simply if it has a picture in it. I have hope for better schools, I just hope all aren't like this one. School has never been made easy for my daughter, but she rather go to the school where she was bullied at then stay here! If you want your kid to have a safe learning place, I would homeschool them or take them somewhere else. Surprised it's even allowed to be apart of Great Schools!.com, because it's certainly not!

To the author of the January 9th, 2015 post: 1. It's principal, not principle. They sound the same but they mean different things. 2. Riverdell is an elementary school. While you might prefer their level of difficulty and rigor for your child, I doubt that they will prepare your student for high school. To those reading this: remember to judge the validity and credibility of the authors. The more mistakes, the less credible. :)

This school is a joke. The 6th grade teachers are straight out of college and are overly agenda happy. The 8th grade teachers don't read the student's IEP's so don't expect them to follow one. The administration argues with parents in front of the students and the principle has a superiority complex so don't forget to call her Doctor. They all expect the students to be organized but most of the teachers can't update their websites after the second week of school so the whole process seems quite hypocritical. Try Riverdell if you can, I hear they have it together.

Archer Lodge Middle isn't even a school from what I hear from my child. She's says word for word, it's more like a colorless jail where they throw assignments your way to keep you busy. The teachers throw you out for dumb things like gum chewing or a little bit of speaking your opinion. Not even in a disrespectful way. I'm mainly talking of the 8th grade teachers. They are giving the children highschool work and too high of expectations. They are young and make mistakes. Stop treating them like adults even if they think they might be! These teachers are arrogant and could care less if the child passes or fails. As long as they have less to grade at night, all is good in the world. Once teacher my child has actually has a saying to almost every question the teacher asks. So say you ask the teacher how they would get the notes he says nmp (not my problem). Well actually since you're the only adult in the room qualified to answer the question correctly and help better the child's education IT IS YOUR PROBLEM!!! Also the principle is non existent, like she's so amazing you have to book an appointment with her. Instead you get to see the very rude assistant principle.

This is the worst school for a child. Teachers could care less if your child passes or fails. NO COMMUNICATION NO RESPECT FOR PARENT OR STUDENT!! They rather call you over something petty than over your childs education. I would NEVER send my child here . My sons eighth grade year has been the worst of his educational experience and I would not send a dog to the place.

The teachers in this school work very hard to make sure my child gets what she needs. My 7th grader is more excited about reading now than she ever has been thanks to her LA teacher. The math program allows my daughter to engage in lessons outside of school with video lessons that even teach me how to do the math that I have not had to think about in quite some time. I took the time to meet with my daughter's teachers, and they are a wonderful group of people. They truly care about the success of each and every one of their students. I know that my daughter is in good hands.

unorganized, rude staff and poor work ethic. It's seems that the teaches could care less if a child is placed in the proper classes or not. Or life the child is getting what they need form their classes. They just don't seem to care much at all. It's not their kids right.

Some great teachers!!! Some...not so much. Vice principal quite rude in treatment of others. Not addressing my son's need to be challenged sometimes despite promises to the contrary. Typical of any government entity.......do what you HAVE to and no more. My wife teaches in Wake and its pretty much the same all around. We take very active roles but are met with middling to poor responses most of the time. "Electives" are chosen for the students, which baffles me.

PLEASE ADD A 0 CATEGORY a 1 RATES THIS PRINCIPLE TOO HIGH! I recently went in to find out how my child was doing a the school and the principle for some unknown reason is rude to me. I can'tfigure it out as I have never met this woman before. I have to assume the teachers are better but I have heard they are not much either..

Like some things, but children are not treated uniquely enough. Too much shuffling of students midyear - not enough parent teacher involvement - did not even have an open house in fall 2009. My daughter had class changes four times in a school year - not for behavioral problems.

We also just relocated to this State and my daughter loves Archer Lodge. She said she feels more at home at this school and that the teachers and students were very friendly. As for teachers e-mailing people. I've used e-mail and gone through the schools engrade system and have had prompt responses regarding any of my questions.

Arhcer Lodge is Average. I had problems with the behavior of some student. But what really bothered is that my son was placed in classes that were too easy for him and no one was willing to address the issue. Even after I took time off of work, to visit the school's main office. I pulled my son out of that school because the quaily of my children's education is very important to me.

I am not to please with Archer Lodge Middle School. The teacher do not email the parents back. I have e-mail two teacher this school year and they did not e-mail me back. I even call one of the teacher and left a message for them to call me back and they didn't. The teachers tell parents they prefer e-mail instead of phone calls. Then the teacher should e-mail the parents back. This is called a lack of miscommunication. So teacher you if you prefer for parents to e-mail you, then you should e-mail back instead of ignore it.

My daugheter to this school last year when she was in 8th grade. Personally I do not think this is a good school at all. Some of the teachers were very rude and not helpful at all. Also the principle and assistant princple to me do not know what they are doing or how to run a good school enviorment. She went to riverwood in 6th and 7th grade and then she had to switch to Archers Lodge and 8th grade by far has been her worst year there.
