Your experience at Sneed largely depends on the teachers your child recieves; some are kind, some rude, and some are nice, but don't care much about the children. I also think the issue goes both ways -- a lot of parents don't understand just how horrible middle school children can be. They wear the staff down, and someone that might've been caring and considerate is writing up one kid twice a week. If your child is struggling in a subject (or worse, more than one), they will most likely only struggle more -- although some teachers are very helpful on this, and are happy to do extra tutoring. It all depends on the luck of the draw. On the other hand, if your child excels in school, they will lack challenges. Unless they take the initiative on their own, which we all isn't likely from a seventh or eighth grader.

I agree with the parents who made the posts on October 26, 2009 and September 18, 2008. Most of what they've said is right on the mark, especially concerning standardized testing. If you have a child that works slowly and needs to actually process what he learns, you may want to send him / her somewhere else. The quality of teachers varies. Some are caring, others are downright condescending and arrogant. Don't expect your e-mails to be answered promplty, and if you e-mail 'too much', they complain. If you don't e-mail enough, they imply you're not 'involved' enough. If you end up having a family crisis, don't expect much compassion and / or understanding unless your child is an 'easy - A' student. If he / she is, you should have no problems. The teachers need lessons in mentoring and Child Development (my opinion).

The teachers don't assign written homework, they don't challenge the students and the administration seems to think they are God allowing teachers with bad attitudes to translate their bad days to the students. I am utterly dissappointed with the Principal, vice principal of the 7th and 8th grade. The principals and teachers really need to ask themselves why they are there.. what I'm seeing is nothing more than collecting a pay check. Its beyond sad

They emphasize too much on the testing scores, & don't make learning interesting enough for the students. It seems like all they want to do is teach straight from the PSATs & other tests that are scored & then ranked among the other schools in our state. They just want to have good enough scores so they will rank higher. Teachers need to get back to making learning interesting & fun & not so mechanical & robotic. Not all students learn at the same pace, so they need to slow down & let the students 'smell the roses', & not be in such a hurry to go from one test to the next. Children are not robots & do not have photographic memories. They need to come up with a more personal way of teaching & show the students how learning could help them in the real world later in life.
