Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
They are pretty on top of the bullying situation. Maybe even a little overboard. They have a very broad definition of bullying and are hyper sensitive to anything remotely like teasing.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
Not from what I see so far... I don't see anything enacted to create such characteristics.


Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Most seem satisfactory. One or two stand out as exemplary, and a few are below par.

It's fine. They seem to have low expectations of their students academically. Most of my daughter's sixth grade work is more on the level with the end of fourth grade/beginner fifth grade. The school secretary is pervasively sexist and rather rude, which is the exact opposite of the example they say they send and in stark contrast to what they expect from their students. They serve unhealthy food for lunch and their gym teacher is a joke: from what I understand they spend the majority of the class receiving directions, waiting for all students to comply, and waiting a turn to kick a ball, which doesn't always happen. The sixth grade Language Arts teacher is amazing. She's spot on with somewhat challenging curriculum and holds the students accountable. She brings in current events and is a true role model. Also, there is no dress code; the lack of micromanaging is a huge plus. They do try to give students what independence they can to foster a greater sense of responsibility.

My oldest daughter started as a 6th grader here last year. She's now a 7th grader. SBMS has been the best experience. The staff, leadership and teachers have all been outstanding. Her classes are challenging, but fun. She has found great teachers to be her mentors. The other kids are for the most part, kind and caring. Very little drama. Her electives have been art, choir and guitar, and she has done very well with those pursuits. After hours clubs and sports have been very supportive and fullfilling activities. The parents that volunteer hours of time and energy are amazing. Could not have asked for a better experience for our whole family.

The school is a safe and welcoming environment for my child. The music and art program is amazing and I believe that the money would enhance and maintain a program that alreay speaks to the whole child.
