I want to say thank you to Mrs. Mccarty because she has been there for me for 3 years and she knows me really well and she knows when i am really sad or need a hug and she is a great teacher as well. She can be fun and make jokes and have personal connections with her students and she can be serious and get things done but in a nice way. She is a great teacher.
Sometimes there is a little bullying and from experience I had a problem with bullying and the administration was not really helpful so I had to deal with it on my own but it all worked out and the administration is getting a lot better with helping
This school seemingly has a lot of great things going for it, but the number of students (1,400), the large class sizes (80 kids in one 6th grade band class) and the lack of choices for electives will leave you wanting for more. The students also have advisory class and enrichment...both are huge wastes of time. The students aren't graded in these classes and it's just a way to save money since the district doesn't have enough money to have the students take real classes and not these filler classes with no set curriculum or direction. Also, this school splits for high school. Some of the kids go to Sunset and some go to Westview, which can be really hard on kids who may have been friends since kindy and are then split for high school. All that being said, this is probably the best comprehensive middle school in the Beaverton School District. I have found the teachers (for the most part) to be very caring and professional. The principal does a great job of leading such a large school.
I am a parent of a student that goes to stoller!. Unless your child is gifted or extremely polite, curious and are liked by the the staff, I would not recommend enrolling he or her at this school. I am amazed how the staff fails to recognize the needs that other than gifted kids need.
