I went to Siegel Middle for the full three years, and my experience was about a 1.5. The teachers are constantly scrambling for material and condescending to students. Teachers turn a blind eye to too many things that matter while if your phone were to fall out of your back pocket too many times you would get a detention. I never had detention or anything of the sort, so this is not out of bitterness, but I will add this: everyone at the high school says the middle school is awful. The high school is incredible save for the choir program (but that's for another review), the people are the best part, but the middle school is lacking in terms of leadership, acknowledgement, activity, teaching and discipline. It's not hard to give your students a little freedom. Break is ten minutes and no one cared about it but the faculty acted like taking it away was taking away the best part of the school day. Lunch is assigned by homeroom tables and you're walked to it. I'm not asking for as much freedom as high school, but it was a little ridiculous.
Although education is adaquite, the rules are biased towards females. This being said dress code is barely applied to males but females have difficulty even finding "appropriate" attire. Therefore, dress code should be rethought and unbiased. Although some teachers live up to the high standard that once was required, others fall extremely short. For one out of many examples, a teacher will treat the student based on their like ability rather than their potential. Moving on from that, the school is VERY unorganized! Some examples include fundraisers, class scheules, any general event, etc.... The school needs changes but so does every other school. Yes I do sound harsh but overall the school has a whole isn't to bad but simply has a few rough patches.
