Yes, my daughter reported an incident on the bus where she was being bullied. The gudiance department already knew before I was called. The principal and staff addressed the issue promptly. I was very satified with the way the situation was handled.
The school will contact parents if there is an issue and provide suggestions. My daughter was placed in another math class for additional help. She didn't mind the change. The school made this transition very easy.
Strath Haven Middle School is an excellent school if you are looking for the best education for your child. I moved to the district from another local district. I am so happy I did. My daughter enjoys her school and she tells me how her teachers make learning so much fun. The resources they have here are the best and the staff is phenomenal. They work as a team to help your child. The high school also made Blue_Ribbon again this year. The Wallingford -Swarthmore District is amazing.

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.
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.
