I am a former student of the school, and my experience at the school was horrible. Constant harassment and bullying form other students, which the teachers and administrators turned a blind eye to. I don't remember actually learning anything there because people would be harassing me in class in full view of the teachers. If you haven't gone to santa fe schools before the jr high, i would strongly advise against going, as "new kids" are treated harshly by other students and the staff just doesn't care.
Parent: From one parent to another, I have to agree with you! Unfortunately, they don't seem to care, unless like you said, " if you don't demand your child to get help", they are left to try to figure it out on their own. Or they just get frustrated and pretty much give up! Who can blame t them! I thought it was "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND" HA! What a joke!
As a parent of 3 children in this district; one in Special Ed, one in GT Ed and one in regular education I must say that the school district as a whole is adequate. Unfortunatley, if you are not heavily involved in your childs education process then this district is not for you. Focus on meaningless rules, their enforcement and dress codes seem to place higher than individual acheivment and lowering student teacher ratios. Your child will receive the education you demand and monitor at this school district.
