Strath Haven Middle School 4

Strath Haven Middle School might seem like a great place, but the number bullies is unbelievable. Eight out of 10 students are being harassed and bullied each day and it happens everywhere. The bullying happens in the halls, buses, cafeteria, recess, and even during class. Bullying consists of threats, assault, and cyber bullying. The faculty prevents bullying in a small way, but they don't have consequences to prevent further bullying. The faculty just gives the bully a detention usually, or a suspension. The school should teach kids how to respect each other and have a better system to prevent bullying. Strath Haven Middle School is a good place, don't get me wrong, but they should prevent the bullying more.

Only a little of the teachers inspire the students, but they do work hard to try making the subject interesting.

Amount of homework: Not enough

The homework is very easy, but students choose bad decisions during class so they don't know how to do the homework. Some of the bad decisions are not listening, fooling around, doodling, or playing games.

They somewhat do, but the effects are small. Many of the times students usually tell themselves they can't do it .

No, there is constant bullying everywhere throughout the school and the faculty are not helping with reducing the bullies.

They somewhat do, but the way how they do it does not help. The school does activities to help with it, but usually the students don't listen or just hates it.

The school does not develop a strong way of having students respect each other, and developing integrity and good decision making.

I had one daughter go through the Wallingford Swarthmmore School district and she is now a 2nd year college student. I also have a middle school-er. We have been generally pleased with the district and level of education as a whole. I feel that great school are a product of a great neighborhood and parents who are engaged in their child's learning. My second child is having a completely different time in SHMS than the first child. the new school building is wonderful but school renovations or lack there of had no bearing on the great education the kids received years ago, it is really great teachers and a wonderful community that makes great schools. So glad we live here and are a part of the WSSD community

I am so pleased withthe education that my daughter is getting at SHMS. The classes are diverse, and I really feel taht she is being challenged in many different ways by the curiculum. The music and foreign language programs are great. The extracurriculars are amazing and really allow the chidlren to explore different options of what they might like to pursue. Amazing school. I recommend.
