Permenter is a great school it all depends if your student pays attention and does all there work and homework.the security is good they are a little harsh in lunch but above all a GREAT school.
I went to this school for two years and the experience wasn't the best. There are some good teachers and there are some bad teachers. In my opinion I say there are more bad teachers than good. Some of the teachers show favoritism. One the best teachers is a History teacher named Mrs. Maddox she really makes History and learning fun!
I'm a graduate of Cedar Hill ISD class of 2011. The level of learning for this district (yes from Permenter also) has left me unprepared for college and fed up with the lack of student attention. They focus to much on sports and uniform than on a proper education. I was considered teachers pet and can say that even they are fed up with this school system! My brother is going to this school now, and sister to follow. Let's just say after numerous meeting with the school board things are not changing. Bullying, pregnate students and lack of education is why my parents are have to move to another city. Because they are seeing the problems and have tried every other possible solution. I recommend if you love your child DON'T send them to this district! Student don't wasn't to learn and teachers don't want to teach problem children.
Thank God, one kid graduated from Trinity Christian School, and now I can afford to send my other child there and save him from Permenter. I posted the May 10th, 2011 post, and God willing, this will be my last post as I will never have to deal with CHISD again. Now if I can just sell my house and get the heck out of Cedar Hill. Lesson learned, the city school district is way more important than some fancy house. This lesson is costing me more than a few thousand dollars YEARLY, but my kids are worth every penny of it.
i went to this school awhile back and it was alright all they did was care about uniforms though the best teacher is ms. west she fine then a mug.....the worst teacher there is ms. mitchell i think her name changed due to marriage but whatever she's mean parents your kid can go there
this school has some great teachers and some not as great but they try!
The school is really strict about what we wear! they should care more about what we learn than what we wear
The school was academically Recognized by the TEA this year. I applaud the strict discipline doctrine applied by the teachers and administrative staff. While some feel that they are too strict on the dress code and other aspects of student life, I think that if you set high standards in ALL areas, you will get exceptional results. You can t learn in a disruptive atmosphere. Good extra curricular programs as well. Once again, high standards are in place. If a coach hears one of the students using foul language, or poor sportsmanship, there are consequences for their bad behavior. I think Dr. Roache-Davis has done an outstanding job in her first year as Principal at W.S. Permenter. She led her first campus, Lakeridge to Exemplary status, and I think that she is on that same course at Permenter.
permenter is not a good school at all. The teachers are not teaching right or putting grades in right. they are not trying to help the students pass. Thay could care less if the children pass or fail. Its way too crowded in the hallways because of the amount of students there is. I took my child out because of that. Parents, I recommend that you dont send your child or children there
I have been highly disappointed in Permenter M.S. for my child. My son is a straight A student in Pre-Ap classes and has scored 'commended' on every TAKS test he has taken since 3rd grade. He is also an athlete. I am scared to death for my son at this school. Most teachers are really good teachers but they can't teach for the disruption of all the mis-behaaved, disrespectful, non-home trained youth that attend that school where it is obvious that the leadership (ie-Principals and Vice Principals) do not do their job! The teachers need to be backed up and at PMS it is obvious they are not...I put in two phone calls and an email to Dr Roach-Davis herself and never got a reply even though the rule is a 24 hr turnover response time...hmmm maybe a little tougher team in the administration might just turn this school around...
I love this school!! They have amazing teahers that make learning less boring. The athletics at our school are great. The students are...Hmm...'Enegetic' and I can't imagine a greater school than this!! bring...Your...Child...Here!! =-]]
I am a student at permenter in the 8th grade and the only good part of this school is mrs maddox.
I love the fact that they are strict. I have a foster child that just transferred there this month. She said that she didn't like the fact that they have an adult roaming the halls to make sure they are in class. Her last school didn't have anyone. Therefore, she could skip all the time. I love it! My only concern is that she never has homework :-(
This school is well educated and the teachers interact with the students.
They are to strict and worry more about what we wear instead of the learning. We barely have any freedom in this school!
I really don't have much to say about this school. I'm just glad that my daughter is done with it and I wouldn't dare think about sending my son there. The teachers and principal spends too much time on what a child has on instead what a child has learned.
