decker middle school i go to this school and they dont seem to give two potatoes about fun. They dont punish the children that get in trouble all day every day. By any means the children that get in trouble the most are closer to the administators than the good children. i hate this school i only care about 4 teachers in this entire school. No kid should be expirencing a jail system at ages 11-14 we deserve to be free and loved. Learning is important but its hard to focus when thousands of requirements are upheld. They know who the trouble makers are, but they dont do anything to remove them and then they wonder why good kids cant work in that enviroment. if anybody is failing its THE STAFFS Fault, for going on favorites just because of sports. - K.M and J.M
This school is great but teachers are dictators and only care about there salary and the administrators just treat students like trash they always punish the innocent and take long to give information this school needs major improvements.
This school treats students like they are part of a jail system. I am not impressed with the staff. They are slow to return calls, answer phones and get information to parents and students. The counselor is like a drill sergeant and doesn't have a nurturing attitude..he comes across as a know it all and rude. He lacks people skills..not sure how he got his job?!
This school does not respect students. Does not acknowledge students that need help in certain subjects and thinks that it is all of the students responsability to get "the work" done with the neccesary knowledge. When in fact it is the students peers (teachers and parents) responsability to help motivate the kids and teach them what respect and responsability is. They do not treat students with respect and as individuals. Instead, they treat all students as if they are the one that is a drop out on the verge of failing and have no intrest in picking them back up. The only thing good about this school is the football team and dedication from the coaches.
The school has such potential to be awesome. But some teachers, and administrators decide to be dictators and not try and understand anything. They treat students like they have no sense, and favor certain groups of students, and punish others for something they didnt do. The principal is very involved with the students and a few administrators are even friends with the students, rather than favoring them. The 8th and some 7th grade teachers are very involved in the students learning and their life. Overall, its an okay school. The administrators should take their own advice and learn to respect students as well.
