Wow. Our experience couldn't be more different from the last reviewer. No school is perfect. I agree that some teachers could provide more feedback to parents. But overall, Trafton has been good for our kids, who have visibly thrived and become better students. Certainly true the school is not for every child. I don't have a problem with my child not making a sports team, and don't have a problem with the lack of a gym or auditorium. Nice to have but not essential. Good solid academics in general.
We have sent our child to this school since 5th grade and he has complained everyday about bullying and the administration has done nothing he is in 6th grade and is still bullied there is constant interruptions in the classroom and lack of consequences for those who bully our son
This school has failed in providing a safe environment for its students and has people bullying each other in grade 6 through 8th and they can't even solve that problem the administration are a bunch of failures
This school is terrible and the principals are crazy they always think they are right and they think they know everything they also have a big ego they are terrible at solving problems and they should be sued for false advertising the school is underdeveloped and lacking necessary facilities such as a gym auditorium and cafeteria they make no aceptions and do not send your child to this school
My son is finishing 8th grade at Trafton and I can honestly say it has been the best experience he could have had for middle school. The academics are very strong across the board, and the school culture is warm, caring, and friendly. The education he received fully prepared him for the ISEE test, and I am confident that he is ready for high school because of the great education he has received. The teachers want the students to succeed, and are very available for assistance during breaks and study hall periods. The school was very supportive and helpful throughout the entire high school application process. We will miss Trafton next year!!
