My child attends Conwel Middle School. I am very dissapointed with his lack of progress. My child came in as a 7th grader and had no idea about the math curriculum that is currently being taught. After we received an interim report which indicated that he was failing, I contacted the teacher to let her know that she was leaving my child behind without concern. This school should have a system in place to identify new students coming in from other schools and not just assume that every student started Conwell at 5th grade and are familiar with learning rhythm at Conwell. Parents, if you child is failing you should contact the school immediately.
I really enjoy going to this school. I am in the eighth grade and have the 'special' classes at conwell. This school have graet kids that i get along with very well. The teachers help you with your problems and make sure that you understand things before they move on from the topic. The school itself is falling apart little by little. Not to mention that it is in a bad neighborhood. I take the bus both to and from the school and all the time i have to worry. Although this has never happened it sure could. However the police have picked up the protection pace at this school. Over all this school is a great place and makes me expabnd my mind into many places.
I graduated from this school in 2007. This is the best middle school in Philadelphia. Mr Palmer is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!
My child has shown great progress during his years at Conwell. He has become involved in music and sports and has found great academic growth. He is now attending Central and finding success because of the preparatin he got at Conwell.
I think that this school has so much to offer. With the problems between Jones Middle School and Conwell , they seem to be handling it in a good respectful way. My daughter goes there and she is about to graduate . She has done so much there since she came last year . The academics are tremendous and they have so many extracurricular classes , to keep my child busy. I love the school and I hope this school will have so many more accomplishments
I was extremly excited to have 2 of my four children attend Conwell. However after they have spent a total of 3 years in the school I regret to say it is sad that they allow lower leveled students and discipline problem children attend the school. After all some parents do care weather or not there children are safe and learning above their expectations.
This is my daughters first year at conwell. I couldn't be happier with her grades. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in my child.
I feel as though this public school is biased in that children who are on the honor roll receive more attention and accommodations than the children with average grades or children who are struggling to get by. It seems it should the other way around. On the other hand, the school itself and the curriculum is great.
So far I am not impressed by the School my son went from an A student to a C/D student. The teachers have not been helpful. Hopefully things will get better this year or I will be relocating him to a school that can make classes more interesting. I have sat in on these classes and could have done a better job there was no enthusiasm and excitement at all.
Enrolling me in Conwell is the best decision my Mother could have ever made. I excelled as a student at Conwell and the staff could not have prepared me for high school any better. The small but impressive language department gave me a great advantange over the Sophmores as a Freshman when I entered Spanish 2 in high school. I love this school and wish to return very soon for a visit.
I think Conwell is the best school my son could of attended for middle school the teachers in annex section 53 are the best I've seen in a long time. I am happy with my choice for my son. Keep up the good work.
My daughter is now in 7th grade started attending in 5th grade. Is a better school than most but could and should be so much better, at enforcing discipline codes, and hold teachers to a higher standard.
I had to decide where I wanted to send my daughter to middle school and Conwell rank with one of the best middle schools in Philadelphia. Even though my daughter has to travel an hour and ten minutes on transportation, it worth it. I wanted her to be challeged academically and Conwell is doing just that.
I have one child in conwell and one child graduated. I love the education that they provide which seems to be at a higher level than most middle schools in the region. The combination of both parents and teacher involvement is what makes this school succeed!
Heads up for a great school Several of my children attended Conwell, and to my greatest of happy moments ::: one of my grandchildren is attending now. Teachers are great, no nonsense type. Learning interests are kept very high, and requires challenge. Music department is wonderful, every opportunity given in all departments. Choir director is exceptional. From a parent/grandparent who thinks Conwell is the GREATEST
