I am a 4.0 student at this school, and I really think that it could work on its desipline. The Sandy Hall part of the school really needs some extra desinle towards fights.

As a substitute at this school, I can tell the 1 rating is not deserved. It is definitely better than what Greatschools.org says it is. The administrators and staff have constant communication and the needs of the students are always addressed. I am very comfortable going to this school.

This school is the worst school i have ever been to. The teachers worrie too much about discipline than academics. The teachers also get easily distracted and do not help us with our work. The classes are out of control and wild. Most of the teachers are pushovers and let the students take advantage. I do not reccomend this school.

The teachers and principals at this school work hard to keep it running so well. My son was given challenging work that was about real-life issues.

I don't like that this school is so disorganized. They don't explain things to the students in terms that they can understand. They need to not make things so complicated for the students that are just coming into the middle school. My daughter came home so confused her first day it was not a good thing.

I will never send my son back to this school. They choose to look away and focus on the Honor Students, ignoring the rest of their students. This is an unsafe, poorly managed school. This school needs to be saved before it's too late.

While the school has a lot of needs and challenges, I have been impressed with the quality of the staff. My son had really struggled and his teachers on the Sandy house have been very encouraging. They have called home, let him come in, sent home good notes and he feels really cared for. I hope he will have the same experience at the high school.

This school might have a bad reputation, but in reality the school is full of hard working teachers and students. Kids fight, not everybody always agrees, but the school reputation shouldn't be based on the behaviors of the students that have attitudes and don't want to accomplish things. I went to that school for 3 years and while I was there I met some amazing people that try and are dedicated and have dreams to accomplish in life. If parents were more involved in the schools activities the school could be better, but in order to become better it needs the help and support from the parents of the students.

This school may not have the greatest reputation or history but I have to commend the current staff and especially the principal for their wonderful efforts to make this school a positive learning environment and a school to be proud of. If you access the current state report card for this school you will notice that it has raised it's overall grade to superior. Only 3 years ago it's rating was poor. There could be more school sponsored, extracurricular activities for the students considering that many of the student population falls into an 'at risk' category and it is true that children involved in sports, music, drama and clubs lower their risk for gang involvment and drug use.

I'm not satisfied with this school at all. The teachers and other staff do not communicate and in my opinion don't seem to care about their students academic and social well being. I'm so disgusted with them I don't even want my child to attend. If I could I would transfer him out of there.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 22, 2005

This school Rocks!! just because its my school. I think that the staff tries hard to make this a good experiance for us. the teachers are really nice(most of the time) some classes get out of control sometimes but the class pays for what they have done. any way my school Rocks I dont care what anybody says. oh yeah I love the sports program the coaches really modivate the team to be good compeditors. even if the team doesnt win the coachs make the teams feel like they won anyway. So thats a good word to out athletic director, Bob Taylor!!

I wouldn't recommend this school. Nothing ever appears to get resolved. Classes are out of control in some areas - particularly the elective classes. School also discontinued bus transit after sports last yer - big disappointment in a society where both parents work and exercise is really good for our kids. School is mixed with many other minorities and the classes seem to get held back for the average student. In my neighborhood, parents are selling their houses just to move to a new school district. All of my son's friends in the neighborhood have transferred to private or ClearCreek.
