We have loved this school. I have two very different style learning children and they both have done extremely well! It is not easy but the teachers are young and eager to get them ready for high school and even college. My kids have learned awesome study skills as middle schoolers! The environment is new, clean and bright!
This school is wonderful! It has now been completely rebuilt. (Old buillding torn down and new one built) Nothing from the old building was brought into the new one. Bright, beautiful classrooms. Brand new computers, active boards, etc. The staff and teachers are great for the most part. I am a parent with my second child now attending and I have had only one complaint in 3 years. My children have done exceptionally well here both academically and socially.
This school is terrible. If your child has ANY special needs (adhd, any learning disabilities, etc) do not send them here. They will not get the support they need and be treated like something no one wants to deal with. My son is in 7th grade was in honors last year at his old school and is almost failing this year from the lack of support. Everything is a fight to get the child what they need here. My son will not go back to this school. He also says the kids are snobby and gets bullied quite a bit. Horrible horrible school!
My child's experence here was AWFULL she was bullyed evreyday and the guidence department would not do a thing about it , the staff is very lazy (with a few exceptions), beacause of this experince my child is now in a privite school.
This school is pretty good. Excellent guidance department. If there is any bullying, it is quickly cracked down upon. Classes are fast paced and help the students get ready for college and beyond. The guidance department makes sure kids know their options in high school and how their actions will affect them in the future. Excellent band. If compared to other bands, this would be on top. Only bad thing is that the buildings are not the newest in the world and due to lack of funding, the materials are outdated. But new computers have been installed but the laptops are more of a nuisance then a help. Sports are okay. Strongest teams are Soccer, basketball, and wrestling.
The less than stellar equipment, texts, and support material would be a result of the county priorities rather than the school. The teachers do an excellent job with what they are given. This school has extremely high standards and expectations of the students. For my child it was a little too high and sometimes debilitating as he couldn't always measure up, but overall a great school!
I find this school to be great for education, but very dated with equipment, security, text books and all support material. I find it funny on back to school night, they would like you to bring in a ream of paper to help supply the school for the year. Lack of funding? Overall this is a great school with dedicated staff and teachers, but is very dated
