This school is TERRIBLE! The teachers and admin are not there to help the students. My child repeatedly seeks help but none is available. She is bullied and made fun of by other teachers but the admin doesn't help. Can't wait till she is out of this school!!
My wife and I have been pleased with Zachry MS. We have our 4th child attending and we're pleased with the comfortable, welcoming and safe feeling we get when we enter the school. Our child stays busy with band and other activities. Staff communication has been good.
My child went to this school. You don't get a warm and welcoming feeling there. Despite the atmosphere, my child continued to excel academically and scored high in the STAAR tests as had always done; we were glad for this. The school does offer a great array of extracurricular activities which is a plus. I also believe the teachers are trying to teach the kids as best as they can. However, many of the students who attend this school lack respect and good manners and commonly use inappropriate language (slang terms and curse words) as a normal manner of talking and supervising adults (teachers) seldom if ever correct or discipline them if and when over heard. A handful of fights were also witnessed. Teaching respect and good manners are not part of the school curriculum, this is left to the parents to teach, which unfortunately some parents are not teaching very well. In this school kids are exposed to every spectrum of society including the good and the bad as well as a diverse social economic background which in itself can all be viewed as a Social Studies learning experience in itself. Despite the pluses and minuses my child seemed to like attending the school.
I have two children who go to this school one in 7th grade and one in 6th grade. I've had nothing but issues with this school. The bullying and gangs at this school is ridiculous, Ive been up there over 6 times for my kid's being bullied. Not to meantion the weekly drug problems. I will be finding another school for my childern to attend next year. I'd rrecommend not taking your children here.. The office never returns your calls either..
awesome. needs more time to get to classes though. 3 minutes is not enough. other than that it is a great school! i am a 6th grader there currently! its great! you'll meet lots of friends and OK teachers!
I would not recommend this school. Our son has had numerous issues with bullying going on. The incidents have not only occurred in the hallways, but in the classrooms and after school program. It has been addressed with the principal as well as some of his teachers, yet it is still an issue.
