i am a parent of a child with autism. this school has done nothing but be there for my child. the teachers have went out their way to help me as a parent and my child as a student. i am very happy with the school and the treatment of my child. i think every school has room for improvement. it is what helps the future students.

Improvements are really needed! I am in the 8th grade , there preparation for high school is the worst !! Teachers are very rude. The school is the nastiest ever! full of dust and bugs in the hallway. As a student I do not recommend any student to go here.

This is my first year as a student in Sangaree Middle School and I am extreemly disapointed. We can't talk in the hallways at certain times and at lunch we have assigned seats. With all of this it is hard to make new friends and the friends that I have I can't see too often. We only have 1 semester of gym and that is keeping kids out of shape. Some of the teachers can't control their class so the ability to learn is difficult. I must say this is not what I expect from a school.

This is my son's first year in a public school. It has been extremely difficult for him and myself as well. In the beginning I thought that the techers really didnt care whether my child is passing or not. However, the 6th grade Social Studies teacher, Math teacher and the health/PE teacher have shown me differently. Not only have they expressed concern regarding his school work but also regarding his behavior, attitude and changes they have noticed in him - both good and bad. They are currently working with me on helping him improve his grades. Also, when I called initially regarding him needing extra help in math, I spoke with the counselor and school psychologist who referred me to the assistant principal. She answered my call immediately and assisted. Yes, I am disappointed in what I have seen the children doing on school grounds and nearby.

I disagree with the above comments. Teachers are never there just to receive a paycheck. Have you seen the pay a teacher gets? I feel that the teachers at Sangaree Middle do care and put a lot of time and effort into their students. Their day doesn't end when the students leave. I know many that help before and after school. Many attend band and chorus concerts and support students in all areas. My child has had many opportunities to take part in extra curricular activities. The band, art and industrial tech programs are outstanding and have received numerous awards. Not bad for only being open for 3 years. The school is kept clean and all staff look out for the best interest of the children.

I go to Sangaree middle school and my step mother teaches there and there have been many complaints on the administration of the Berkeley county school district. even though the curriculums and standards are set well, the reinforcement of the rules is not done very strictly and the principals do not keep a constant consequence for the same 'crime.' Oi got into trouble for talking in class and I had only gotten one office referral before then that year and I had OSS. in the handbook it says that the first office referral for talking is a warning and the second is work detail. OSS is not issued until the fourth consequence. I am a straight A student and this school is not up to my standards because it is not strict enough at times and at others it is too strict. they need to keep constant punishments.

I also think that this is NOT a good school. Most of the teachers seem to just put in time to collect a pay check. And the rest of the staff is just as bad. When you call 4 days in a row trying to reach the head principal and get no response that tells me that they just do not care. If I could I would put my kids in a different school but I do not have that option.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 8, 2007

This school is horrible. This are only a few good teachers. But other then that the main part of the staff just doesn't care. I choose not to keep my kids in the school! It all starts w/poor administration on campus.
