My school is a very good school but we have a lot of kids in class how talk and won't listen to the teacher when he/she is talking. I like the sports program a lot because the games are on a school day instead of a weekend and I think parents really like that because It frees up your weekend when nothing is going on. Subs really like to sub at my school because they say where really good kids. Student review
My daughter has been bullied at this school for 3 years! Nothing ever gets handled no matter how often I call!!! Her dad and I are now gonna take her out of this school. Her safety isn't important enough to them! Stop Bullying!!!! One teacher even told her that they didn't like her hair! Seriously not a FAN!
agreed! TEACHER bullying forced my son out of the school and i was then bullied myself with threats of resource officer interviews. the principle is ridiculous, the vice principle a joke. these people do not know how to fairly advocate for our children and their rights against bullies, teachers or otherwise! I encourage all parents of 6-12th graders to investigate the wonderful alternative they have at their fingertips called Redmond Proficiency Academy. These jerks never even told me a thing about them, preferring me to instead just remove my kid from their school, saving them the trouble of having to actually give a care.
my sons in the 6th grade. So far he is really enjoying his experience. I know that acouple of his teachers are exceptional, and of course some are o.k. He hasn't experience any bulling issues at he grade level yet. Team sports (cross country so far) has been fab for him
My son is a 7th grader and is struggling but I do not believe it is the schools fault. We moved into this district this year and Isaac s need to be more organized has been highlighted as a result of being in a tougher environment. He is challenged and that is a good thing. Also, when he wanted to play basketball and failed to make the varsity or jv squad, he was still able to play intramurals. He hopes to make jv next year. Good for Elton Gregory!
Even though I consider this school to have exceptional academic teachers, the cutbacks to curriculum in recent years has greatly depreciated the entire program. Understandably, the recent population explosion within a short period of time creates many hardships for school staff to provide quality education to students. However, my concern (after personally observing throughout the 2004-2005 school year)is that these highly qualified teachers and staff are spending way too much time monitoring hallways and 'policing' the kids.
