Kulshan Middle School 5

My son started here at the beginning of 7th grade. Coming from another state and a private school, I was worried how he would fit in with the public school mindset. This school blew my mind. Not only do they offer an amazing art & music curriculum, the staff are all wonderful. Everyone from the Principal on down made our family feel welcome. My son made new friends quickly and has an awesome experience in this school. I feel so blessed my son has had this school experience. Thank you Kulshan!

The parent communication piece at this school is top notch. They use planners to communicate daily and there are newsletters per grade level emailed weekly detailing what students did/will be doing in each class. If a parent doesn't know how their child is doing at this school then they are not paying attention. I have found many of the teachers caring and skilled and a select few (a rarity in any school) interested in getting their students to think and give opinions . . . and . . . teaching the students how to back up their thinking/opinions with sound reasoning and evidence. The school climate and spirit (including students and teachers) is above average.

This is a great school! We love the use of technology with Google Drive, Edmodo, text messages, Skyward. We always know where our kids are academically and are in constant contact with all our teachers.

You are treated well IF the Principal Leadership likes you. If not, you will have constant problems. Parents input is disregarded. The Vice Principal decides.

New staff turnover changes for academic year '10-'11 has not resulted in the best of Kulshun years. Over dependence on sub-teachers with late and incorrect recording of student scores on the Zangle parent connection web-site is disappointing. Prior excellent Teacher-parent communication standards have fallen. Sadly there is a inflexible punitive and growing unfriendly atmosphere pervading the school culture this year.

We have been nothing but thrilled with Kulshan. The teachers have been very easy for us to work with and go, what I would consider to be, above and beyond to let us know when prior discussed concerns begin to show up again. They seem to truly and authentically care about our 6th grade son's progress and well-being. We feel so fortunate to have our son at Kulshan.

Very poor communication from the teachers. If I had not made an effort to check on my sons progress I would not have known that he needed help until it was too late. Staff seems to create trouble when there isn't any - seldom notices any of the great things kids do. Over all this has been the worst experience possible. They have managed to take a kid who loved to learn and turn each day into complete dread.

I have a child with behavioral problems and was very disappointed with the help from pricipals and counselers there. It took the whole year for them to qualify him for special education because of behavior even after he came back after having been in Childrens Hospital for 2 weeks. Through all of last year I was only able to talk to the principal twice. She is no longer there and the vice principal is principal now so things might change. It is a school of children from well to do neighborhoods so there is a little snobbiness at times.
